Won’t you agree that we have given many years to other political parties to meet our demands.? What the ‘Aam Aadmi gained.? Don’t you agree that Arvind Kejriwal has started a honest kind of politics in India? Isn’t that our fault we want to transform Delhi within few days?

Some of the people said that Arvind Kejriwal is a dictator. Don’t you agree that benevolent authoritarian leadership could be good for developing countries.? Won’t you agree with Arvind Kejriwal: None of the governments have done as much work as our government has done in one month.?
