Ralegan Siddhi (Maha): Social activist Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday said most of the current political parties have lost credibility and hence people are yearning for a new alternative which they are seeking to provide.

People in India now want a new political alternative which has a vision and is honest in its intent. This is because most of the present political parties in the country have lost their credibility and people are demanding active political participation from us, he said.

Kejriwal was here in Western Maharashtra to meet anti-corruption crusader Anna Hazare along with his associates Manish Sisodia and Dinesh Waghela.

While Hazare has maintained that he will neither form a political party nor fight elections, members of his now dissolved Team Anna have decided to make electoral foray.

Kejriwal said there are no fundamental differences in his team members as motive of all of them is the same.

A meeting will be organised on September 17 to discuss broad contours about contesting elections. The details of selected candidates for 2014 Lok Sabha polls will be displayed on our website and common people can comment on the selection, the Magsaysay award winner said.

Later, the selected candidates have to give an affidavit pledging not to use Government bungalows, official car, security and other facilities if they are elected, he said.

All candidates will have to give details of property and undertaking that they will not take honorarium of more than Rs 25,000, Kejriwal added.
