Are you rolling your head across the rising sun of India Against Corruption (IAC) party leader Arvind Kejriwal? It is definitely no surprise that after his blazing start in politics that people of India have started dreaming about his winning of the 2014 Election poll and chairing as the honorable Prime Minister of India. But the question arises here: Can Arvind Kejriwal be a good and successful Prime Minister (PM) of India?
As an independent citizen of India, I have the right to keep my opinion and I say yes because of the following causes.
Kejriwal has dedication to the mission of IAC and the welfare of Indian people
We all can easily recall the Arvind Kejriwal who was a social worker, born at Hissar, Haryana (a north Indian state). We can also easily recall the Arvind Kejriwal who was the responsible and influential personality in bringing up the Right to Information Act (RTI). We can also recall the Arvind Kejriwal who joined the revolutionary hunger strike of senior social activist Anna Hazare in pursuance of the Jan Lokpal Bill. From all this we can easily perceive the built-in selfless dedication of Kejriwal who has only gone in the path of progress to the IAC mission and the welfare of the Indian people. Although he has had some differences with Anna Hazare and Kiran Bedi, still he has never given up the mission of IAC which was initialized by Anna. When it seemed impossible to remove corruption by means of hunger strikes and persuading means, clever Arvind Kejriwal chose to enter politics to fight with sword by sword and continue the mission.
Kejriwal has strong fighting spirit against corruption and corrupted leaders
And after making a declaration to form a new political party with affiliation to the mission of IAC in November 2012, Kejriwal has already started his mission 2014 from that very moment. He has also utilized the valuable advices of Anna and made a complete list of his targets. He is taking on the corrupted leaders one by one and unlocking the hidden facts about their black affairs to make allegations in their names. He has already made clear allegations in the name of some well known UPA leaders as well as BJP to strengthen his fight against corruption. So, Arvind Kejriwal has shown clear intent that he would not give it away easily to the corrupted leaders even if he was given a death threat. Thousands of Arvind will take birth to continue the mission.
Kejriwal has huge public support
Thus, it is one of the conclusions to say that Kejriwal is doing exactly what the Indian public wants. So, it is also obvious that Kejriwal has been able to pull the huge public support which is very essential if anyone desires to enter into politics. For the time being, boxes are ticking alright for Arvind Kejriwal.
Kejriwal has 99.9% chance to win 2014 election poll
Public support means you have reserved your votes in advance. The way Kejriwal is processing his plans, it does not seem at all that he will lose the next election poll in 2014. If he gets his party successfully settled in time and gets the requisites for standing in the election ready, then I am sure he is 99.9% all set to take the charge after honorable Prime minister Dr. Manmohan Singh. People will have no hesitation or reluctance to put their votes to his name.
Kejriwal will utilize his power properly
Anna Hazare has confirmed the fact that Kejriwal's turning to politics is a hunger for power, not for money. He is definitely starving to get the power to make India corruption free and solve the aching issues like 'GDP'(!)– Gas, Diesel and Petrol prices and the FDI. People have strong confidence that Kejriwal will utilize his power only for the sake of the nation's welfare. Hence it is legitimate to believe from now that Arvind Kejriwal will be the Prime minister of India.

|Height of imagination, I feel. Another thing is that, 'power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely'. Going by the trends, I don't see any reason as to why Kejriwal should be an exception(given his antecedents)?|

|Nice inspiration article, even I think Arvind kejriwal may win in election.|
But there is less chance of forming Government by his party.
As they have not yet reached to every corner of India and there is very less time for next election.
But I will always support his motive and his highly dedication to developing India and making it corruption free

|First of all the Kejriwal's position in the Indian Against Corruption itself is not sure. He himself has said that he will not use India Against Corruption with his name when questioned by Anna Hazare about his legacy over the organisation. In the beginning when the movement made its presence felt all over India to fight against corruption and passing of the Jana Lok Pal Bill. It seemed that the Arvind Kejriwal and Anna Hazare has brought about a new resoluton but the initial momentum could neither be sustained by Arvind nor by Anna Hazare.|
Even if we presume that Arvind Kejriwal win a few seats for the Lok Sabha, he cannot dream to become the Prime Minister of India and a few MPs or MLAs with him cannot remove corruption from India. Moreover, the assumption seems to be too hypothetical at the moment. His party should have a massive support from all sections of the society. India's politics is caste based, religion based and region based. Using the regional emotions of the people, NT Rama Rao carried away the Telugu Desham with him and brought it to power. The same was the case with Bala Saheb Thakerey who formed the Shiv Sena to oust the Congress from the state with the help BJP. However, there is no charisma in Arvind Kejriwal whose support is spread out very thinly all over India with people shouting slogans against corruption. In such a situation there is a remote possibility of Arvind Kejriwal being catapulted the high echelons of power at the centre.

|Well in India there is no harm in any one to try to become the PM provided he is having he capability and good fan following. Arvind Kejriwal is not a politician first. Indians are habituated to elect politicians to the Loksabha and State assemblies. We all know Kejriwal as the crusader of corruption who worked with Anna Hazare and his inspirational speech do invite youth to his side. But that cannot be turned into votes. He must be acceptable to all the people of India. He is concentrating more on Delhi and is not known to many outside. Let him become popular first and PM next.|

|The coming Delhi polls next week would be an acid test for Arvind Kejriwal for his survival in politics. This article was posted a year back it seems and things have underwent a lot of change. The Modi fever has begun for his political rivals and this stalwart from Gujarat has slowly gained popularity among masses. Now the battle for PM would be between Rahul and Modi only as it appears now and how the post poll alliances in 2014 would change the Indian politics is to be seen.|
As of now, the the Kejriwal effect in Indian politics appears to be minimal or even more lesser. Since he fought along with Anna and his team against corruption and a Nation wide campaign with the support of Media made him to sit in the front line. After parting ways with Anna, the charisma of the dynamic leader appeared to be slowed down. In fact, former IAS officer and Loksatta leader Jaya Prakash Narayan has also started a political party with same ideology in AP but could finish with his own single seat and getting more than 1.8% votes in 2009 Assembly polls. Thus, these sincere people can deliver inspiring speeches and attract youth but the thing is the huge turnout would not transmit into votes when the time comes for voting . That is the bad phenomenon of Indian voting system as the muscle power and money plays crucial for all parties.
