Kejriwal's party to be named on Nov 26: Sisodia

October 02, 2012 12:53 IST

While Arvind Kejriwal would announce the formation of a new political party on Tuesday, its name will be announced next month, his key associate has said.

Manish Sisodia said while the formation of the political outfit will be announced later in the day today, its name will be announced on November 26.  Kejriwal too has hinted a delay in announcing the name when he said that it will done after discussions.

"The movement which fought for a Jan Lokpal will now contest elections," Sisodia said, adding that November 26 was decided as the date for naming the party as the Constituent Assembly had adopted the Constitution on that day in 1949.

He alleged that rumours were being spread that no announcement will be made regarding formation of a political party.
