I WAS SOOOO WRONG (see highlighted text in this post) - Uruguay’s ‘Arvind Kejriwal’, President José Mujica, has been running the country since 2010. When will India’s Arvind Kejriwal run the country?

Uruguayan President José Mujica, seen in this photograph at the swearing in ceremony of his finance minister, gives away 90% of his $12,000 salary to charitable organisations that help poor people and small entrepreneurs. He has declined to live in the opulent presidential palace or use its staff, and instead lives in a small one-bedroom apartment and drives an old Beetle. He's often called ‘the world's poorest president’.

He cares deeply about economic inequality and even as the president of a major nation, he is making tremendous efforts to lead by example. He has been consistently winning praise from his countrymen and the world for his reform efforts, and has taken bold political decisions like legalising marijuana.

Mujica can be compared to India’s Arvind Kejriwal of the Aam Aadmi Party, WAS I WRONG - ARVIND KEJRIWAL IS ATROCIOUS AND PATHETIC - and Mujica has been successfully running the country for three years and is going strong.

Mujica is 78, Arvind Kejriwal is 45. Am I being over optimistic in thinking that if Uruguay can do it, so can India? PHEW WAS I WRONG - GOD SAVE US FROM ARVIND KEJRIWAL!
