Aruna Roy and Arvind Kejriwal

Aruna Roy and Arvind Kejriwal knwon as "Activists of change" for their fight for transparency in government and Corruption free society. Aruna Roy is known as Kejriwal's mentor and had tutored him for years. They had worked together to get the Right to Information(RTI) Act passed, but today they stand at the opposite end of the river on Jan Lokpal Bill. Difference arises when Aruna roy came with the third version of Lokpal which demands PM under the ambit of ombudsman. It wasn't too long ago when NAC member Aruna Roy invited Arvind Kejriwal to draft a comprehensive anti corruption law under the NCPRI (National Campaign for People's Right to Information).  "Solution to corruption is not in that one Lokpal bill and not in the form that it is. So while we think that the expression against corruption is a great thing, the solutions to that are made too simplistic," says Aruna Roy. The drafts, like the finalised Jan Lokpal bill, concentrated too much power in the hands of a single institution, something that the NCPRI did not agree with.
Aruna Roy was born on 26 June 1946 is social activist who founded and heads the Mazdoor Kisan Shakti Sangathana(MKSS). Aruna served as a civil servant in the Indian Administrative Service between 1968 and 1974. She then resigned to devote her time to social and political campaigns. She joined the Social Work and Research Center (SWRC) in Tilonia, Rajasthan.
Arvind Kejriwal was born in Hissar, Haryana in 1968. Kejriwal graduated from IIT Kharagpur as a Mechanical engineer. Kejriwal joined Tata Steel after his graduation from IIT Kharagpur. Later Kejriwal joined the Indian Revenue Service (IRS) in 1995 and worked as an Additional Commissioner of Income Tax in Delhi.
