Arvind Kejriwal: Love him, hate him, but can't ignore him

But the 24X7 media coverage of Kejriwal has ensured that he has become a household name.

He has also struck an instant chord with the middle class, when he accused both the Congress and the BJP of being hand in glove and also took up the burning issue of high power tariffs in the capital.

It's no wonder that IIT and IIM graduates are joining his orgnisation.
