New Delhi: Arvind Kejriwal on Monday said he will form a political party and some announcement to this effect will be made on October 2.
Earlier, sources in India Against Corruption (IAC) had said the formation of the party will not be announced on Gandhi Jayanthi and instead they would take public suggestions on a draft of its vision and constitution. But sources later said this decision was changed and now the party will be formed on October 2.
"Yes we are into politics. It's the very system that forced us to enter into politics. Today if they pass the Lokpal bill, gram swaraj bill, right to reject and right to recall bill we will be away from politics," Kejriwal said.
He said till the time party is formed, they will not collect donations. He also denied reports about him offering to return the donations to Hazare. The question of forming a party had led Anna Hazare parting ways with Kejriwal.
