The public should know the antecedents of a person before voting him to power. Usually when one gets hold of the position of power, it is very likely that he will trample on his inner values. The best example before us now is the Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal who climbed the ladder of success with the strength of his holier than thou attitudes. He was seemingly a man of principles who would never compromise on any unlawful activities. Corruption was what he vehemently condemned and promised to weed out if he would come to power.
At the top of his voice he had blasted all those leaders who were corrupt and had looted the nation. His activities had certainly given sleepless nights to Sonia Gandhi, Sheila Dixit, Lalu Prasa Yadav, Mulayam Singh Yadav, P Chidambaram, Kapil Sibal, Mayawati, etc al. The general people were too glad that they had a leader who gleefully went around in an auto-rickshaw and spoke the language of hard austerity. He asserted that he would stop at nothing for the sake of the country. He convinced the public that he would leave no stone unturned to improve the living status of the underprivileged. This is how the AAP Chief became the darling of the masses.
Well, when the country is plunged into the mire of corruption the people certainly wished for such leaders with high ethical values. They want leaders who genuinely work for the country and can also deal a mighty blow to those who are involved in any kind of unfair practices.
