New Delhi: Arvind Kejriwal, visibly weak from hunger after his long fast, confirmed the intentions of Team Anna to start a political party of their own.
He said that the party would not specifically aim to win elections, but was rather a tool to change the system. Assuring that the members of their party would not be corrupt; Kejriwal said that donations that the party received, presumably their main source for party funds, would be posted on their website and everything would be done in a transparent manner.
Kejriwal asked the crowds for suggestions regarding the party's name, agenda and future steps. He also wanted the crowd to give him ideas on how to ensure that elected officials do not become corrupt one they come to power.
"If you think Congress can give this nation a future, then well and good. If not, then leave it and join this movement. If you think BJP, SP and all the others can't give this country a future, then leave your parties and join this patriotic movement. How will we fight elections? Where will this money come from? We don't need money when the people are with us." he said.
