Flanked by Shanti Bhushan and former Navy Chief Admiral Ramdass who drafted the party's Constitution, he took pains to explain to people assembled there how different his outfit was from the existing political parties whom he accused of having "looted the country since Independence."
Kejriwal also announced that former Chief Justice of Jharkhand High Court Justice Bhagwati Prasad Sharma and Admiral Ramdass will be members of the party's first "internal Lokpal" which would inquire into any allegations against members and functionaries of the AAP.
He said the 2014 elections would witness a unique political battle which would not be between two political parties, but between politicians and the common man.
"Now it will be neta (politician) versus aam admi (common man). The common man, suffering for the last 65 years, is going to establish his own party and sit in Parliament," he said.
