Establishment of AAP
One of the major criticisms directed at the Jan Lokpal activists was that they had no right to dictate terms to the elected representatives. As a result, Kejriwal and other activists decided to enter politics and contest elections.In November 2012, they formally launched the Aam Aadmi Party; Kejriwal was elected as the partys National Convener. The party name reflects the phrase Aam Aadmi, or common man, whose interests Kejriwal proposed to represent.The establishment of AAP caused a rift between Kejriwal and Hazare.AAP decided to contest the Delhi Legislative Assembly election, 2013, with Kejriwal contesting against the incumbent Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit. Kejriwal became the fifth most mentioned Indian politician on social media channels in the run up to the elections.
