Aam Aadmi Party leader and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is a common man – at least that’s what he claims.
He was in attendance at the 68th Republic Day parade at Rajpath with other dignitaries. The weather was cold and misty. As the soldiers and performers marched past, those in attendance watched the spectacle under a very slight drizzle.
Kejriwal wore his signature muffler to beat the cold. But then the TV cameras caught this moment:
Yes, that’s an umbrella over Kejriwal!
Social media claims that the lady holding the umbrella is BJP leader Anupriya Patel, who is MoS Health and Family Welfare.

After a few moments, the umbrella is gone.
What is noteworthy is that Patel is reportedly unhappy with BJP’s seat distribution in Uttar Pradesh.
When he started his political innings, Kejriwal made it a point to tell the people over and over again that he will not accept any special treatment like other netas but remain a common man.
