I'm probably getting the wrong end of the stick, but I'd think not based on conservation of angular momentum.

yes rotation is possible in space for like infinite time, provided that , once that person should be rotated, he will keep rotating

That assumes that an independent 'rotator' is present, and I assume that ganeshie was asking about an independent selfrotator.

that could be possible , for being a self rotator a person need to move himself using is inertia , i think he can rotate, provided that there should be platform over which he can have force of friction or something lol

By the conservation of angular momentum, he could only spin some of himself clockwise by spinning an equal part anticlockwise.
