Arvind Kejriwal on Monday launched his Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and vowed to send “corrupt” ministers to jail within six months of his party being voted to power.

Addressing a big gathering at Parliament Street here, Kejriwal also asserted that Jan Lokpal would be passed in Parliament within 15 days of the AAP coming to power.

“There is no end to the list of corrupt ministers and leaders in the country. All these people should be charged and sent to jail if charges against them are proved,” he said in his valedictory address at the launch ceremony.

Flanked by Shanti Bhushan and former Navy Chief Admiral Ramdass, who drafted AAP’s constitution, he took pains to explain to people assembled there how different his outfit was from the existing political parties whom he accused of having “looted the country since Independence.”
