"The common man has made up mind to support AAP for corruption free and development as a major poll plank." he said.

He said the party will be finalising names soon and efforts would be made to announce the first list of its Lok Sabha poll candidates for Bihar by the end if this month.

He underlined that the AAP candidates, like in New Delhi, would be common

people, the 'aam aadmi'. Fifty-six cr Aadhaar numbers issued, 60-cr target to be achieved soon.
