The most trending topic in Delhi in the second half of this year was, quite unarguably, Arvind Kejriwal and his Aam Aadmi Party, and their outstanding performance at the elections. Not just that, his noble crusade to rid the city, and then the country, of corruption has seen unimaginable success; and his movement that has motivated many and moved many more. See our full article on him and the Delhi election here.
He has a tough choice to make at the end of this year – whether to form a government in Delhi with the support of the Congress, in spite of having less voted than BJP, or not form a government and go to re-election, where he risks a worse performance at the polls and losing what maybe his only ever chance to form a government. If he forms the govt., people will say he has joined hands with the Congress he sought to remove and betrayed them; if he doesn’t, people will say he is just a troublemaker, who chickened out of forming the govt. though he had the votes. He is stuck between a rock and a hard place, and his solution just summarises him and his movement. Ask the voters.
