Kejriwal, A Monster Killer Flounce Dikshit

Dismissed as a political beginner, engineer-turned-civil servant Arvind Kejriwal has paved his place in politics with a stunning political first appearance for his budding AAP and appeared as a giant killer to sweep Sheila Dikshit out from not only office but also her electorate. Contradicting all claims of being a "non-actor or no factor" in the Delhi Assembly elections by Congress and BJP, Kejriwal was mainly instrumental in snapping the 15-year rule of serving Chief Minister. Adding to her misery was the overcome in her own turf-New Delhi constituency-by a huge margin of 25,864 votes. Often pushed fun at by politicians, the 45-year-old former Indian Revenue Service (IRS) officer was challenged by none other than senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal in not to condemn the political system as an outsider but join it to rinse out it from within. In the past one year, if there was one person who sent the whole political range into a tizzy it was certainly Kejriwal, who attacked both BJP and Congress on the issues of corruption, excessive rise in power and water tariff, safety of women and had managed to make a dent in the vote banks of both the parties. Soft-spoken but a man with strong confidence, the Ramon Magsaysay award winner came into fame from the agitation by 75-year-old activist Anna Hazare in support of Jan Lokpal Bill in 2011. He was part of the Team Anna, along with first woman IPS officer Kiran Bedi, Prashant Bhushan and others. He was the civil society representative member of the committee comprised by the Government to breeze the Jan Lokpal bill, following the campaign for introduction of such legislation. After feeling "deceived" by the government when it discarded their draft, Congress and other leaders challenged them to join politics, win elections and come to Parliament if they required to "fight system from within", root out corruption and get the Jan Lokpal Bill passed.
