Aam Aadmi Party gets a 'broom' to clean up politics

July 31, 2013 21:54 IST

Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party on Wednesday got 'broom' as its election symbol for the upcoming Delhi assembly polls.

"With this, the party has crossed the second milestone (after its registration) on its way to cleaning up the polity of the country," the party said in a statement.

With the 'broom' which symbolises dignity of labour, the party hopes to clean the filth which has permeated our government and our legislature. The country needs a clean sweep of its corrupted main stream political parties, it said.

AAP said it was happy that the Election Commission has allotted the party a reserved symbol of 'broom' for all the 70 assembly constituencies of Delhi.

A week after its launch in December last year, the Arvind Kejriwal led-party had approached Election Commission for registration.

AAP national secretary Pankaj Gupta had submitted the papers regarding registration to the election commission.

The party got registration from Election Commission in March this year.

AAP would formally launch its election symbol in a public event on August 3.
