Will get Jan Lokpal bill passed in Delhi Assembly: Kejriwal

He said once the AAP formed a government, a special assembly session would be convened and the Janlokpal bill would be passed.

NEW DELHI: Aam Aadmi Party leader Arvind Kejriwal said his party was confident of forming a government in Delhi and vowed to pass the Jan Lokpal bill after winning the assembly election.

"AAP will form the government in Delhi," Kejriwal told the media here, a day after the Election Commission announced the election schedule for Delhi and four other states.

He said once the AAP formed a government, a special assembly session would be convened at the Ramlila Maidan -- where Gandhian Anna Hazare had fasted for 12 days -- and the Janlokpal bill would be passed.

"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.
