Arvind Kejriwal said he was most inspired by BR Ambedkar, who was born in a Dalit family and went on to head the drafting committee of India's Constitution, and Bhagat Singh, a revolutionary freedom fighter, as they charted different courses for a common purpose.

“I announce today that in every office of the Delhi Government, pictures of Babasaheb Ambedkar and Shaheed-E-Azam Bhagat Singh will be put up. Now, we will not put up pictures of politicians, including the Chief Ninister,” added Arvind Kejriwal.
