    AAP should rather have done something to speak for themselves. They may release any list but it has nothing new to add. It is only trying to encash on other parties bad points. AAP is trying all possible tactics

    Good selection. Wish all the best. Expose BJP,Cong,BSP & SP and all other corrupt political parties. It is they who are solely responsible for Corruption,Poverty,Systemic failure and low education standard. Instead of making people strong they are distributing free bees and converting them as beggars always at their mercy. Let's change this vicious circle and make people at large strong and self respecting citizens.
