Arvind Kejriwal’s has become the idol for every citizen of India who wishes to fight against the injustices of the government. He has stood up as a person who is always there for the common man of India to get them the rights in the society that they deserve. To make such an image of himself, Arvind Kejriwal has gone to extremes from sitting for protests on the road every other day to trying to burst the bubble about the corrupt and uselessness of the already well-established politicians like Narendra Modi and Sonia Gandhi, in front of the media in various conferences, interviews and media talk shows. He has been trying all means and methods in order to get to the audience that is the people of India to show how helpful he is and how corrupt and harmful the politicians of other parties are.

For those 49 days he was the CM of Delhi, two days he was sleeping outside the Rail Bhavan in Delhi in order to show his discontent against the police department. So, from what we have gathered from the number of dharnas or protests Mr. Kejriwal and his party has carried out till date, it seems the only way he knows to communicate with the government by being adamant and disrupting the entire working of the city.
(c) Twitter: Since the time social media like facebook, youtube, twitter, etc. have been started to be used as the sole medium of interaction for people trying to get in touch with each other, celebrities, politicians and corporate houses have also become a member of the same in order to stay connected with their fans or convey their thoughts and messages to the people. Arvind Kejriwal too has resorted to such a strategy by creating a page on his name on twitter and being actively posting information about his activities so that the people know about what he is upto for the...
