I'm hearing this for the first time.Sounds like he's a welcome misfit in the present political stereotypes. We need more people like him setting an example and a trend that whatever the power one holds in office, they are also normal citizens. Such people will have the following of people like you and me, the youth, the salaried and taxpaying class as we see him as a person with the moral courage to be a common citizen rather than a VIP. There are many IAS officers and IPS officers who serve the public and lead a simple life. Thanks to people like these, we can still have faith in leaders.
