Rise of AAP in India

In an era of the Modi Wave and current political landscape being dominated by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), most parties have struggled to maintain their foothold, let alone expand. However, AAP is one of the exceptions. Unlike its rivals, the BJP and Congress, which have deep historical roots and affiliations, AAP stands out as a modern political entity, unencumbered by the legacies of India's freedom movement.

The India Against Corruption movement, spearheaded by social activist Anna Hazare, mobilised millions across the country over two years to demand the passage of the Jan Lokpal Bill. Despite extensive protests and fasts, the bill was not passed in the parliament. Recognizing the need for systemic change, a faction led by Arvind Kejriwal within the movement decided to transition into politics. Thus, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) was born on October 2, 2012.

Kejriwal's leadership, coupled with the party's focus on grassroots issues, has enabled AAP to expand its influence beyond Delhi and Punjab. In essence, AAP's rise represents a shift towards a more modern political era, where governance and performance overshadow traditional political concerns. As it continues to grow and consolidate its presence across India, AAP poses a formidable challenge to established political forces. Amidst the recent arrest of Delhi's Chief Minister, Arvind Kejriwal, we delve into this article to explore the remarkable journey of the Aam Aadmi Party.
