Kejriwal sings Manna Dey song
New Delhi, December 28: All roads leading to the Ram Lila Maidan were chock-a-block on Saturday morning as thousands of people gathered to witness AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal swear in as the Delhi CM.

As he entered the venue people cheered and clapped for their newly elected leader, but little did they expect him to sing on stage. Immediately after the swearing in ceremony, Kejriwal addressed the crowd and ended his speech with the party pledge and a song by Manna Dey from the 1959 film, Paighaam.

In spite of having a bad throat, Kejriwal sung the song, Insaan Ka Insaan Se Ho Bhaichara and the crowd soon joined in. Social networking site like Twitter were soon flooded with many messages after Kejriwal sung the song.
