Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is fast gaining a fan following among Indian expatriates in the UAE.

The move comes following AAP's social media campaigns and novel ideas of governance.

Kejriwal, an income tax officer-turned-social activist, who has become chief minister of Delhi, has promised to bring changes in the city.

According to Gulf News, his promise of 'parivartan' is resonating with the Indian diaspora, with many expatriates registering as party members.

By fulfilling three of his poll promises within days of taking office, Kejriwal has sent a clear message to India's political bigwigs: The status quo can and will be changed, the report said.

Dubai resident Kiran Joshi, an IT professional from Mumbai, used to be a supporter of the Bharatiya Janata Party, but has recently switched his loyalty to the AAP for it being a party that speaks her language.

Abu Dhabi-based Sandesh Pathania, an aircraft engineer with Etihad, feels that AAP is a welcome change from the corrupt polity.
