One of social media’s favourite politicians Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has turned 47 today and Happy Birthday Arvind Kejriwal is the top trend on Twitter with tens of thousands of tweets pouring in from everywhere. This is not unsurprising because the CM uses the platform as an active means of communication with his almost 9 million-strong followers making sure they know about his opinion and thoughts on a myriad of issues. Along with updates on what the Delhi government is doing for its people. This is one person who definitely knows the significance of social media these days and makes full use of it, so it’s not unexpected for his name to be on top of trends when it’s his birthday. People love him, admire him, and criticise him too, but there is no ignoring the minister, for sure.
On Twitter, people from across the country are wishing the CM, including those who admire him for always standing and speaking against corruption – a subject that has contributed hugely to his rise in Indian politics – there are also those who are still waiting for the free Wi-Fi in the Capital, but we’ll leave that for another day. And guess what, Prime Minister Narendra Modi – who is himself the subject of a majority of the CM’s tweets also wished him on his birthday. “Birthday greetings to Delhi CM @ArvindKejriwal. I pray for his long life and good health,” he wrote. Kejriwal would be particularly happy about this one!
Virender Sehwag who is known for his hilarious birthday wishes also wished Kejriwal saying, “May you be blessed with good health,no cold &; good work”. The long list of birthday wishes also include celebrities and politicians.
Trolls didn’t take a day of on Kejriwal birthday, with some hilarious birthday wishes coming his way as well.
Take a look.
Happy Birthday @ArvindKejriwal Ji – have a blessed one. Best Wishes

If we had accepted Kejriwal Sir as our national yugpurush, we’d have got a 4-day weekend. Nonetheless, Happy Birthday Arvind Kejriwal Sir.
