Towards the end of his more than two-hour-long speech in the House, Sisodia, Kejriwal's long time lieutenant, and Finance Minister was effusive in his praise for the Chief Minister. Much to the delight of the members, Sisodia recited a couplet dedicated to Kejriwal wondering "what was so special in your ordinary ways...".
"We may not have the DDA or the Police with us, but we definitely have the country's hope with us. He (Kejriwal) is the country's trust," Sisodia said.
The two have been close since their 'India Against Corruption' days when Kejriwal was a trusted aide of Anna Hazare. Showering more praise on the Delhi CM, Sisodia said Kejriwal was synonymous with "hope".
"Ek naam ek ummmeed agar mai kahu toh (if one name is synonymous with hope) that is Arvind Kejriwal," he said to resounding applause. Sisodia ended his speech thanking Kejriwal for bestwoing upon him the responsibility of the Finance Minister of Delhi.
