Kejriwal, an antithesis of modern-day Indian politician: Rajdeep Sardesai

‘Time’ magazine has featured some leading names who have been making headlines and bringing about change in the society at large in different fields as part of its ‘100 Most Influential People’ feature.

Featured among ‘Time 100 Pioneers’ is Aam Aadmi Party leader Arvind Kejriwal. Rajdeep Sardesai, Editor-In-Chief, IBN18 Network has written a short piece on Kejriwal, titled ‘A powerful outsider in Indian politics’, which states…

“Arvind Kejriwal is the antithesis of the modern-day Indian politician. He’s no Hindu nationalist, he doesn’t have a famous surname, and no, there is no evidence that he has made money from politics.

“A former civil servant, he cut his teeth in public life as an activist campaigning for greater transparency in government. But it was his role as the driving force behind a grassroots anticorruption movement in 2011 that catapulted him onto the national stage. Late last year, he became chief minister of Delhi following a remarkable political debut by his Aam Aadmi, or common man, party.

“Though his administration lasted a mere 49 days, with Kejriwal proving less adept at turning the wheels of government than campaigning against it, his image as the quintessential outsider taking on powerful interests — a David versus many mighty Goliaths — has earned him a unique place in Indian politics.”

Incidentally, Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi features among Time 100 Leaders.
