By on March 10, 2014

A political party launched in Pakistan with the name that has resemblance with emerging and newly formed ‘Aam Aadmi Party’ in India that upended uncommon success of ‘Aam Aadmi’ in India.

It seems that the people of Pakistan are quite impressed by the ‘Aam Aadmi Party’ (AAP). The wave of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) that has swept Pakistan has caught analysts and politicians by surprise. The political manifesto of the AAP has made a strong impact on the middle and poor class people of Pakistan.

Leading Pakistan newspapers ‘Pakistani daily’ and ‘The Dawn’ has praised Arvind Kejriwal in their editorial columns. Pakistani Journalists are also inspired by the Arvind Kejriwal movement. A leading newspaper Pakistani daily called for emulating Arvind Kejriwal, and said that “his simple demeanor and cry against corruption is a model the Pakistani ‘Aam Aadmi’ could in time be inspired to try out.

Arsalan-ul-Mulk renamed his Pakistan Muhajir League as Aam Admi Party. A group led by Arslan-ul-Mulk, a rights activist from Gujranwala, has registered the Aam Aadmi Party with the Election Commission of Pakistan.

A member of the party said that ‘Aam Aadmi’ are deprived of basic facilities such as law and order, food, health, education, environment and other important necessities. The goal to form a new political party is to bring a change in the democratic system, to make fundamental economic and political reform in the country, and to improve the conditions of the country.

 Mulk has announced to sit on a hunger strike, a form of protest widely undertaken by the leaders of Arvind Kejriwal-led AAP, outside Punjab Assembly next week.

The leaders of AAP will sit on strike in front of the Assembly demanding acceptance of Police Reforms and Anti Torture Bill 2014. The party would also protest against police torture.”I have chosen hunger strike as an ultimate mode of political protest against pervasive injustice,” he said.
