After almost a fortnight since Arvind Kejriwal unmasked BJP President Nitin Gadkari, the IAC activist is back with a bang. “Watchout for today’s expose. It cud be pretty big,” read his tweet this morning, effectively putting to rest rumours of Kejriwal being a one-expose wonder.
The Congress camp wore a desolate look, with fright writ large on the faces of most Congress leaders. The only Congressmen who seemed at ease were External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid and the first daamad, Robert Vadra, who spent the day pointing and laughing at their colleagues as they scurried around seeking solace in each other’s company.
Even Nitin Gadkari did not seem as relaxed, despite having been exposed already. The BJP president was seen rushing back to his house, clumsily driving his car himself, through the parking lot. “Conventional wisdom says that lighting doesn’t strike the same place twice. But with Kejriwal hinting that today’s expose could be BIG, I’m not taking chances,” he muttered to our Unreal Times correspondent before taking off down the road.
The common man, however, seemed unequivocally excited. Sick relatives propped up randomly in office conversations, as office goers rushed home to make it before Kejri’s conference, closely followed by their bosses. Also calling in sick was Prime Minister, Dr Manmohan Singh, who literally danced his way to his home, took a surprised first lady Gurcharan Kaur into his arms and recited some exotic urdu poetry.
Twitter seemed ablaze as well. #KejriIsBack started trending with thousands of tweets pouring in every minute. Satirists were seen hopping between the News Channels with one hand on the remote, and the other on the F5 key of their laptops.
The man of the hour, Arvind Kejriwal, rushed past the media in his car, but not before looking directly into the camera and saying in a low, bloodcurdling voice, “Be Afraid. Be very very Afraid.”
