Yes, you read it right! It’s official! ‘Baby Kejriwal’ is set to meet Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday and netizens just can’t wait for the big day to see the little munchkin. The AAP made the official announcement from its Twitter handle on Thursday. “Big Announcement: Baby Mufflerman is invited to the swearing in ceremony of @ArvindKejriwal on 16th February.

Baby Kejriwal broke the internet and how! Curiously, he was not able to meet Kejriwal on that day despite waiting for two hours. The AAP is also obsessed with 'Mini Mufflerman' just like many of us. Recently, the party tweeted the toddler’s photo in a reply to Netflix. To the OTT’s “Kabhi kabhi lagta hai tu hi cutie hai." Tweet, the AAP replied with a picture of the toddler, saying, "Are you talking about him ?@NetflixIndia".
Tomar’s photo was also tweeted with caption ‘The Muffler King’ a day after the results were announced.
On Tuesday, Kejriwal won New Delhi assembly seat by a margin of 21, 697 votes. Kejriwal defeated BJP's Sunil Yadav to become MLA for the third consecutive time from the New Delhi seat. Kejriwal got 46, 758 votes while Sunil Yadav got 25, 061 votes. Indian National Congress's Romesh Sabharwal remained at distant third with just 3,206 votes, according to Election Commission data. Interestingly, this VVIP constituency saw a maximum number of candidates contesting the polls. Apart from Kejriwal, 27 other candidates contested from New Delhi seat.
In the 2015 Assembly elections also, Kejriwal had emerged victorious from the New Delhi Vidhan Sabha seat. He had defeated BJP's Nupur Sharma by a margin of more than 31,000 votes. Nine years ago, Kejriwal slipped into the political frame behind Anna Hazare during the Lokpal movement in 2011 before quickly enlarging his canvas, first as a satyagrah activist and then as founder of the cleverly named Aam Aadmi Party that took on the might of the BJP to reclaim Delhi for a third time on Tuesday. The name of his party as carefully chosen as his public persona perhaps, Delhi's 51-year-old chief minister is the embodiment of the everyday man but one who has tailored his politics and campaign in keeping with the times.
