He was previously the CM of Delhi from December 2013 to February 2014 but stepped down after only 49 days in office. His political career is diverse, but his passion for social causes and environmental concerns has made him one of the most sought-after politicians in the country. He recently announced that AAP is ready to face challenges in Panjab and will form a ministry very soon.
In the late 90s, Kejriwal was an IIT graduate. In December 1999, he founded his own NGO, Parivartan. He firmly believed in the motto, “Change starts with the little things.” He spent years helping citizens resolve their rationing and drinking water issues. Kejriwal was a former joint commissioner for the Income Tax Department. After forming a government in Delhi, he made electricity and water free for household use, with a limit.
Born in Agra, Kejriwal grew up in a middle-class family. After graduation, he took the IIT-JEE examination and scored high, which helped him to join the IRS as a Commissioner of Income Tax on Income. The Mohalla clinic was one of the major initiatives taken by the AAP government in Delhi for lower-income people to get health care facilities in every corner of the city.
In December 1999, he founded his own NGO, Parivartan, and started campaigning for public services. He provided free tax consultations to citizens and helped them solve their income tax problems.
Kejriwal was born in Siwani, Haryana, to a religious family. His father, an engineer, and his mother, Gita Devi, a government professional, were also excellent readers.
After he became a public servant, Kejriwal entered politics as a social activist. He was an advocate of the Jan Lokpal bill, which was a bill aimed at preventing corrupt practices. He has been reforming the political system since announcing his candidacy for chief minister. His party has been a hit with the common man. In the last few years, he has gained global fame as a politician and as a social activist.
The party aims to fight corruption and bring transparency to governance. After serving as the Chief Minister of Delhi for two years, he has gone on to become the leader of the Aam Aadmi Party. During his time as an engineer, he went to a lot of different universities and took part in a lot of different social projects.
He is the most popular chief minister in the country and has been elected to office three times since 2011. But what really makes this party unique is the idea behind it.
Kejriwal’s success came by implementing his own political platform. His first political initiative was India Against Corruption movement, which aimed to get the Jan Lokpal Bill enacted. While the party failed to achieve its goal, it earned him popularity amongst people from across the country. Afterward, he began his own campaign for the Delhi Assembly. He has since won 67 seats in the elections held in 2015, and his movement is far from finished yet.
