After Arvind Kejriwal became the Chief Minister of Delhi, I started recollecting the movie ‘Nayak’ where Anil Kapoor changed the entire system in a single day after becoming the Maharashtra CM. In the movie a television reporter played by Anil Kapoor sets out to change the system and root out corruption from the society. After the movie ended, I forgot about its plot as I couldn’t relate with it. I started thinking that it was just a fiction movie revolving around imaginery characters and nothing to do with reality. Everyone is aware that whatever incidents has been shown in the movie is merely man made which can never become reality in day to day lives. On the other hand, Arvind Kejriwal has turned reel life into real life after his party defeated Congress in the Delhi assembly election.
Just like Anil Kapoor’s character in the film Nayak, Arvind Kejriwal too made significant changes in Delhi within a short span of time. In the film, Anil Kapoor receives an opportunity to become the Chief Minister for a one day and he makes significant changes. He surprises the villain Amrish Puri who was having a stronghold in the state politics. The actor nonetheless tarnished his credibility within one day. Even Arvind Kejriwal’s story has a resemblance with the movie Nayak.
A revolution was witnessed in politics as the common man all of sudden came into limelight, floated his party and decided to contest the election. Within just four months he won the trust of common man and defeated one of the strongest politician who was in power from last 15 years. Even though all this sound like a dream but one has to accept the reality as AAP party has come to power in Delhi.
The another aspect which surprised everyone is the mode of functioning of Arvind Kejriwal after becoming the Chief Minister. Kejriwal’s style of functioning looks exactly similar to the job of Anil Kapoor in Nayak. The moment Anil became the Chief Minister he started taking steps to eliminate corruption and rusticated the officials. In the same manner, Kejriwal too rusticated the corrupt officials and provided some relief to the common man by reducing water and electricity tariffs. He should continue to do the good work done by him which will enable him to make an impact in the Lok Sabha election which is just round the corner. I hope that Kejriwal will provide good governance and set examples for other parties to follow.
