"Be it the BJP or Congress, both the parties indulge in politics of loot. People of this region are fed up with them. There is a strong possibility of Aam Aadmi Party emerging as the third force, as the voters are now looking for a better alternative," the 46-year-old leader said on Sunday.

Agarwal, who is a 1989-batch graduate in chemical engineering from IIT Kanpur, claimed the Aam Aadmi Party can provide a strong alternative to the voters of the state. He said the entire organizational network of Narmada Bachao Aandolan is supporting AAP.

Announcing the launch of his campaign for the elections, he said, “During the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections, while raising the national issues like unemployment and inflation, we would also take up the local issues.”

Apart from corruption and poverty, we would also raise burning issues like rise in crimes against women and the problems of farmers and tribals, he said.
Agarwal will be contesting from Khandwa seat, which is presently represented by state Congress president and former union minister Arun Yadav.
He alleged that Yadav had forgotten the Khandwa constituency ever since his victory in 2009 and failed to raise issues of the region.
