Since the inception, AAP members with their leader Arvind Kejriwal made it clear that they will stand by what they promised before elections. The Aam Aadmi Party follows the principle of “swaraj,” the Gandhian concept of self-rule, or rule of the people. Kejriwal strongly believes that his government is government of common people of Delhi. Unlike earlier politicians with their VIP convoy and grand houses, Kejriwal had firmly that no one from party’s elected candidates including chief minister Kejriwal will take security cover or red-beacon official vehicles if they are to come in power and they will also stay away from Private Security Officer (PSO) and escort vehicle.
They say, in India corruption prevails at all levels. Today, a common man, Arvind Kejriwal claims to provide a corruption free nation and he has launched the Aam Aadmi Party, the party of the “common man” in order to do so. The Aam Aadmi Party follows the principle of “swaraj,” the Gandhian concept of self-rule, or rule of the people, and focuses on issues that concern common people, like “social inequality, health, education, farmer’s rights and price rise.
AAP addressed most of the above mentioned issues during their campaign. AAP has grassroots connect. They realized that huge section of the city’s masses do not have usual availability of basic civil facilities such as water, electricity and healthcare. The AAP has gauged this population wisely. They promised them ample water, interrupted power supply and sufficient healthcare services. Plus, if we look at top line up of AAP leaders like Arvind Kejriwal, Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan, we realize that all of them have humble middle class background and they are highly qualified. This appealed to the public.
AAP has proved age old norm of politics that it takes decades to build up a political party and big names are needed to create party identity don’t work anymore. The generation Y of India is wise enough to take bold steps to change the current political scenario in the nation. The result of party’s creative election campaign and its direct involvement with citizens is outstanding.
