Kejriwal eyes Delhi, says 'AAP will bring Jan Lokpal if voted to power'

New Delhi, Oct 5 (ANI): Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) founder Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday charged the UPA Government of betraying the nation, and said that his party's first priority will be to pass the Jan Lokpal Bill if it comes to power.

Aiming to muster majority in the upcoming Delhi assembly polls, Kejriwal vowed to fight for the people's cause if the Aam Aadmi Party is voted to power.

"I assure you that by December 29, we will have Anna's Jan Lokpal Bill in place. If the Aam Aadmi Party's Government is formed, we will call a Special Session on December 29 and pass the Jan Lokpal Bill," he told media here.

"Our crusade against corruption will continue," he added.

The bureaucrat -turned -social activist -turned politician alleged that the Congress and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) are two sides of the same coin.

"What development has the Congress done in Delhi? What work has the BJP done in MCD? You can't get your work done without bribes," he said.

Kejriwal claimed that his party will get votes based on the history of BJP and Congress, as the two political outfits have failed miserably.

The Model Code of Conduct has come into force in five states, including Delhi, going for the assembly polls.

Voters in all the five states of Delhi, Rajasthan, Mizoram, Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh will for the first time have the choice of 'None of the above option' to reject the candidates contesting the election in a constituency.

Chief Election Commissioner V. S. Sampath, who announced the poll schedule yesterday, said except Chhattisgarh where polls will be held in two phases, all other four states will have single-phase polls.

The elections will be held in Chhattisgarh on 11th and 19th November. While in Madhya Pradesh, the polls will be on 25th November and in Rajasthan on 1st December. The election in Delhi and Mizoram will be held on 4th December.

Counting of votes in all the states will take place on 8th of December. (ANI)
