Ever since an independent country emerged, the national political frame had only been dominated by two parties, the Indian National Congress and the extremist right winged ideology Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP). On a strong philosophy of anti-corruption a third party, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) or Common Man’s Party came into existence led by Arvind Kejriwal which revolutionized the political scene of the country.
Turning three years old on November 26, 2015 Aam Aadmi Party has been through a fickle journey. Let’s take a recap on three years of Delhi’s Chief Minister Kejriwal and his Aam Aadmi Party that broke Twitter.
The ubiquitous Muffler Man troll has followed Kejriwal for quite some time now, however, now the muffler is not just around his neck but taken Twitter by storm. Post the announcement of Delhi elections, #MufflerMan was trending hot and flooded with tweets.

Ideology of anti-corruption gave birth to Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party. With the promise of rooting corruption from the system, Kejriwal fired Delhi’s Food Minister Asim Ahmed Khan on charges of corruption. To express their pleasure towards his gesture #AAPWalksTheTalk was instantly trending on twitter.
AAP is the only party which takes its manifesto seriously. RT if you also feel so. #AAPWalksTheTalk. RT

If process of expelling Prashant & Yadav is slowed down, there will be no need to expel them as they will become inconsequential.#warinaap
