Arvind Kejriwal answers question about absence of his favourite winter accessory
Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party leader Arvind Kejriwal ‘Mufflerman’ to many on social media answered a query about the absence of his most-liked winter accessory this season. Earlier, a twitter user asked Mr Kejriwal why he hadn’t been spotted in his muffler of late.
"Iss baar muffler nahi aaya bahar abhi tak? (The muffler hasn't come out yet this year?)," the Twitter user asked. "Thand bhi bahut hai.... janta pooch rahi hai sir (It's very cold. The public is curious, sir)."
Replying to the user, Kejriwal wrote, "The muffler came out long ago. The people did not notice."
The Delhi Chief Minister also had an advisory for the people of Delhi. "It is very cold. Take care, everyone," he tweeted.
Delhi recorded a minimum temperature of 5.8 degrees Celsius. The weather department has forecasted that acute cold will carry on over the next couple of days.
मफ़्लर बहुत पहले निकल चुका है। आप लोगों ने ध्यान नहीं दिया। ठंड बहुत ज़्यादा है। सब लोग अपना ख्याल रखें। 😊 https://t.co/XUEeZe7wt0— Arvind Kejriwal (@ArvindKejriwal) December 25, 2019

As claimed in a book ‘India Social’ by Ankit Lal, the word ‘Mufflerman’ actually eventuated as a way to make fun of Kejriwal’s chronic cough and the muffler he wore to shield himself from cold.
