However, today it is almost impossible to get time from Arvind Kejriwal for a personal interview. Based on my personal experience, I can say that now he neither entertains each call made on his mobile nor he replies to the messages.
Has Kejriwal changed? Has he become choosy after getting his share of fame in media? Has he become egotistic? Such questions are obvious to come up for any person who takes a journey from nothing to everything, from being nowhere to everywhere.
However, the answer to all the above questions in the case of Kejriwal seems to be a big 'NO'. The way he is taking his fight against corruption at the national level and that too against bigwigs, requires a lot of time to research and analyze thousands of documents. He may not be getting enough time for one to one dialogue with every person approaching him.
But irrespective of this, hundreds of people are approaching Kejriwal everyday with their grievances. As reported by Times of India the anti-corruption activist is getting support of various new organizations in his fight. Latest to show solidarity with him is Bhartiya Kisan Union's (BKU) Haryana unit president Sardar Gurnam Singh, who is planning to organize a rally in February next year to mobilize farmers against corruption.
Kejriwal's attack on Sonia Gandhi's son-in-law Robert Vadra with respect to several alleged land scams in Haryana has given him support of agriculturists from Gurgaon and Manesar.
Employees of NCERT, the National Council of Educational Research and Training, have also approached Kejriwal seeking his intervention to get their 19 colleagues re-instated, who had reportedly been suspended for complaining against the chief of the NCERT to the CVC.
Kejriwal reminds about a film called Nayak, in which Anil Kapoor accepts the challenge of villain Amrish Puri to become the chief minister of a state for one day. He focused his eyes on various cases of corruption, which were directly impacting the common man and in the last emerged as a hero of the commoners.
