Sisodia, who is the No:2 in the Delhi cabinet is called the 'de facto CM' by many because of his role in running the day-to-day administration while chief Arvind Kejriwal also worked on building the party. He held the Education, Finance, Planning, Tourism, Land & Building, Services, Women & Child, Art, Culture & Languages portfolios.

Sisodia started his career as a journalist, before becoming a social activist with Kejriwal's NGO Parivartan which was carrying out a crusade against corruption. When Aam Aadmi Party was formed in 2012, he became a member of its political affairs committee
