Subscribe to Oneindia News

New Delhi, Aug 7: In a country ruled by politicians with criminal records, here comes a political rider with a broom. Yes, that is the party symbol of Arvind Kejriwal's Aam Aadmi Party (AAP).

With a positive motto to brush out the tainted politics that India is known for, the party assures that it will have candidates with "clean image who have a zeal to change the way politics is perceived today".
