There may be disagreement about Mr. Arvind Kejriwal’s politics. We may have serious difference with his political philosophy. Nevertheless, tactics employed by Mr. Arvind Kejriwal have caught peoples attention and imagination. Whether Mr. Arvind Kejriwal will be able to translate his popularity into vote, only time will tell. For India to succeed, Mr. Arvind Kejriwal has to succeed. Otherwise, who will keep nation’s conscience? Politicians, and middlemen will suck the last drop of juice out of the country for personal gain.
Mr. Kejriwal and his team have also shown that society is throwing up a new kind of leadership. People find him, and those around him to be intensely honest. These people believe in their cause very passionately. It is also apparent that unlike many professional politicians, Mr. Kejriwal and party are mostly product of middle class. These people are highly educated, extremely articulate, multilingual and have a genuine feel for India and her people. Mainly, the poor and the disadvantaged. Many of them could have led a comfortable life like many others. What Mr. Kejriwal and Mr. Prashant Bhushan has shown that still there exists people who care about others, even at the cost of their own benefit. This is so refreshing and so rare in todays day and age. I read such selfless act only in story books.
