Fortune magazine has included Delhi chief minister, Arvind Kejriwal, among the world’s 50 greatest leaders.
In its list released on Thursday, the magazine has placed the AAP leader at 42.
While carrying Kejriwal’s photo with muffler, the magazine observed,
“When Kejriwal unveiled a blueprint to tackle the smog in New Delhi—called the world’s most polluted city by the World Health Organization—many were skeptical. A key component: an “odd-even” pilot project in which vehicles were allowed on the roads only on alternate days. The uplifting result of the pilot this January: Roads were less clogged, hourly particulate air pollution concentrations dropped by 13%, and citizens could breathe deep.”
According to the magazine, the 50 chosen leaders are transforming the world and inspiring others to do the same ‘in business, government, philanthropy and the arts, and all over the globe.”
Amazon’s acting president, Jeff Bezos, has claimed the top position, while German Chancellor, Angela Merkel is at number 2 and Aung San Suu Kyi has claimed third spot in the list of the world’s greatest leaders.
