‘Come to Jantar Mantar tomorrow, become a founder member of AAP’
Arvind Kejriwal was tonight elected as the National Convenor of his newly-formed ‘Aam Aadmi Party’ (AAP) and said he will tour the country for the next one year to ‘expose’ the Congress and BJP while trying to convince people on why they should support his outfit.

At the first National Executive meet of the party after its launch on Saturday, Pankaj Gupta was elected national secretary while Krishna Kant will be its treasurer.

All the three were elected unanimously by the 23-member National Executive Committee.

‘These people have been authorised by the Executive Commiittee to take appropriate measures to approach the Election Commission for registration. We have also taken steps to open bank accounts and receive donations,’ lawyer Prashant Bhushan told reporters.

The National Executive will again meet on Tuesday and Wednesday, while the party launch function will be held tomorrow.

Before the programme, Kejriwal and his aides will go to Raj Ghat and Ambedkar Bhawan in Civil Lines as a mark of respect to B R Ambedkar who drafted the Constitution. Tomorrow is Constitution Day. Earlier in the day, addressing his supporters, Kejriwal made a passionate plea to youth to join him full-time to bring about a revolutionary change in the country’s political system.

Addressing his supporters near Rajghat here, the activist-turned-politician also used the platform to attack Congress and BJP saying they ‘used’ people only to get votes and never bothered about them.

‘There are people who have looted India a lot. Now the youth have decided to come out and drive them out of Parliament. I ask all youth therefore to come to Jantar Mantar tomorrow and they will be given the status of founder member of the party,’ Kejriwal said.
