The increasing nepotism and corruptibility of the present-day political elite makes them uninspiring, while the lack of transparency and the opportunism of the older parties have also contributed to distancing them from the people. This is a major crisis of democracy and it has created space for the rise of new leaders with integrity and of party organizations with commitment beyond their vote bank.

Aam Admi Party (The Common People's Party), the new party in India, has the prospect of widening, deepening and strengthening the movement against corruption by “walking on two legs” – active citizenship-based multilayered initiatives for basic reforms and voter-oriented political organization for electoral intervention. Prof. Anand Kumar will address the ideas involved in creating this new political formation.
