Arvinder Singh, an auto driver based in Delhi, says he feels betrayed by Arvind Kejriwal after he learnt that the Aam Aadmi Party founder actually eats food.
“It came as a shock to me when a friend disclosed it. I didn’t believe it at first – but then he showed me a photograph of him having rajma-chawal,” said Arvinder. His eyes were red, his shirt was crumpled, and hair disheveled. “I was crying the whole night,” he added.
Arvind Kejriwal has a long history of betraying people. He studied engineering at IIT, but never worked as an engineer. He got into Indian Revenue Service, only to resign after a few years. He was a close aid of Anna Hazare, but left him soon after. He won more votes than others in Delhi elections, and swore in as chief minister only to resign in 49 days.
I shouldn’t have been surprised by his latest betrayal, Singh said.
Singh has therefore decided to shift his allegiance back to BJP. “Modi seems to be a good guy. I have never seen a photograph of him eating anything.”
