Supporters hope party will usher in transparency
Welcoming the launch of Arvind Kejriwal's Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in the capital on Monday, his supporters hoped the party would bring about transparency in politics and serve as an alternative to India's leading national parties.
"We were looking for an option (to national parties) and we got it in the form of the AAP," said Chandan Raj, an under-graduate student at Delhi University.
"This party (AAP) will bring transparency in politics," said Chandan Raj, who was among hundreds of people gathered near Jantar Mantar on Parliament Street to attend the formal launch of the new party.
