He has Hijacked the whole control of party from Anna Hazare. Anna Hazare has been cheated by the this clever man: Arving Kejriwal. Aravind Kejriwal talks big about cleaning the country and the government. First, he should set an example that he is really honest, not a stooge of the Congress Government.

it doesn,t matter that our elections are becoming celebrity centric as
long as they raised their voices for citizen's issues. The ordinary
common man wants food, house and better living conditon, if celebrity
can fulfill them they should be elected. But one thing is to make sure
that all ground level party workers who worked day and night for their
parties should not be ignored, due to media attention brought by a
celebrity.

All what we need are those persons who does things in the best efficient manner, who have deep-down knowledge and experience in politics and who work with only one supreme motto - by the people and for the people. They have the lives of 1.2 billion people in their hands and they have to make a good story out of it. This is not a situation when a movie gets flopped and they can go for another good script. Each scene and every second should be at its best to make it a success. If the celebrities feel they can make justice to it, they can get a good chance.
