AAP Convener Arvind Kejriwal said his fight against money and muscle power in politics won't stop after making an electoral debut in Delhi, but would spread throughout the country.

"We will fight Lok Sabha elections but we don't know when and how. Our fight is not going to end in Delhi, but it will continue throughout the country," he told CNN-IBN news channel.

He said that AAP's victory was the beginning of a new era of politics which is about clean candidates, untainted leaders and direct participation of the people.

On questions about his former Team Anna member Kiran Bedi asking AAP and BJP to join hands to form government in Delhi, he questioned, "Does she feel BJP was good?"

"How can we take support of BJP or Congress as they failed to pass the Jan Lokpal Bill? There would be a time when we would definitely form a government," he said, adding why they (BJP and Congress) were shying away from forming a government.

He also refuted about the existence of "Modi wave" in Delhi elections, and said "it was created by media."

When asked that whether Anna Hazare's participation in his election campaign would have made any difference, he said "I would request Anna that he should bless us as that would also be of help to us."
