‘Anarchist’ to administrator — Arvind Kejriwal gets a makeover, with inspiration from Modi
Arvind Kejriwal is on an overdrive to ensure an image makeover — from an anti-corruption activist who preferred ‘anarchism’ even after becoming the chief minister into a leader and an effective administrator, ThePrint’s Aneesha Bedi (@aneeshabedi) reports.
With assembly elections due in the national capital early next year, the Delhi chief minister is resorting to a time-tested political strategy — create a personality cult that would paper over all failures in governance and politics over the past five years.
As part of the strategy, the ruling Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief is ubiquitous across the capital. From video conferences, mobile apps, metro stations, auto stands to hoardings on roads or full-page newspaper advertisements, Kejriwal’s face is present all over Delhi even as he highlights his government’s achievements.

चाहे सब लोग उम्मीद हार जाये पर मै नही हारता...
मुझे तो अभी भी उम्मीद है कि कल सुबह 5 बजे राज्यपाल महोदय मनोज तिवारी जी को फोन करेगे और घर बुलाकर मुख्यमंत्री पद की शपथ दिलवाएगे, और शपथ समारोह मे देवेन्द्र फड़नवीस भी मौजूद रहेंगे....

The man in his 20s, locked up his father in a room while the polling was on February 8, to prevent him from casting his vote. He was certain that his father would vote for BJP.
He said he was inspired from his friend who lives in Delhi’s Palam area, who pulled off the same stunt with his parents.
Delhi recorded a voter turnout of over 61 per cent in the hard-fought Assembly election with the polling having picked up pace in the evening.
Most exit polls have predicted AAP winning over two-third majority but Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari said the exit polls will fail and the party will win 48 seats. "All these exit polls will fail. Keep this tweet of mine. BJP will form the government in Delhi with over 48 seats in Delhi. Now please do not find an excuse to blame Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs)," Tiwari said in a tweet.
