Aam Aadmi Party is an Indian political party. It was launched by anti-corruption activist Arvind Kejriwal on 26 November 2012 at Jantar Mantar in Delhi[1] after his movement with Anna Hazare dissipated in August 2012 with the government ignoring the movement.[2]


After years of oppression, inequality, injustice and unfulfilled promises; most people are tired of corruption. It is this frustration that gave rise to the vision of Aam Admi Party:[3]

"a system where the political leaders we elect and place in the Parliament are directly responsible to the voters who elected them. Our party's vision is to realise a dream of swaraj that Gandhiji had envisaged for a free india — where the power of governance and rights of democracy will be in the hands of the people of India." – Arvind Kejriwal
