Arvind Kejriwal faced a lot of problems in the Income Tax Department because of his anti corruption activities and also because he did not cooperate with his higher officials in corruption. Later on, Arvind Kejriwal  started two organizations, namely Parivartan and Kabir. Later on, Kejriwal popularized anti corruption activities and Indian citizens voted him to be the Chief Minister of Delhi on 28th December 2013. This was when he popularized the Jan Lokpal Bill, but since he was not able to implement it because of non cooperation with other parties, Arvind Kejriwal  resigned on 14 February 2014 as Chief Minister of Delhi.

He never wanted to take part in part in politics after that and his term of 45 days was the shortest ever. However, his friends and party members persuaded him to get back into politics, since he was the only hope for the nation. On the same February 14th this year, Kejriwal takes position as the Chief Minister of Delhi beating his rival parties BJP and the Indian National Congress by a huge majority.
