New Delhi: People are tired of netas (leaders), corruption and unquestionable authorities of power, social-activist Arvind Kejriwal said as he convened the meeting of his political group, that was named Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Saturday.
Promising swaraj (self-rule) and poorn azadi (complete independence), Kejriwal said that the party will strive to stand apart from other political outfits that do not question themselves and are often ruled by top leaders with iron fists.
"Today the common men, women, children are forming their party. Around 300-350 people are coming together today to form the party. They are not netas. They are fed up of netas," Kejriwal said ahead of the meeting in New Delhi.
"They are the people who are fed up of corruption and price rise. This is why the common man has decided to challenge them. Now the common man will sit in Parliament. National Executive will be formed. It will decide the name of the party," he told reporters.
"To run the party, there will be a National Working Committee. Around 25-30 issues will be discussed... which all issues need to be taken first by the party. Committees will be formed. They will make drafts in four-five months. There will discussions through the country," Kejriwal said.
