Delhi Govt I-Day Celebrations Have Kejriwal as PatternWhen a government sponsored Independence Day celebratory programme is held, there are school children who sit in the stands or perform on the ground. These children often make several patterns of images or words during their performance. Most popular among these patterns are the Indian flag or the words Jai Hind.

But Delhi, ruled by Aam Aadmi Party and its megalomaniac chief minister Arvind Kejriwal, is different. The children in the stands were asked to make ARVIND KEJRIWAL as a pattern, not once but many times during the course of the celebrations. Nothing can be more disgusting.
Kejriwal is reported to have said that he is perturbed by the incident and has instructed that it should never happen again. But the simple fact is that the event must have been organized by someone in the government. That someone would not be so ignorant as to know that such a practice is not acceptable at Independence Day celebrations. His or her sole intention was to please the chief minister, knowing full well that Kejriwal is very fond of promoting himself. This is the kind of mentality government staff tend to develop when a megalomaniac is at the helm.
The least the Delhi government can do is to identify the person, or the team, that handled the event and punish them for this serious lapse. Just saying that this will not happen again is not enough.
