Accompanied by the commander-in-chief of the newly formed KHAP, Vipin Gupta, Bhadauriya took out a march in the city Feb. 28, holding a large banner outlining the aims and objectives of his party. What amused the onlookers was the message the banner carried. It said, "Only the corrupt, schemers, fraudsters, etc. Are eligible for membership."
"The party is keen to have electoral tie-ups with any political outfit other than Aam Aadmi Party. "The ideals and principles of KHAP match those of others, except AAP," the banner proclaims. Terming AAP convener Arvind Kejriwal as the party's "arch rival", KHAP said it feared only former President APJ Abdul Kalam and noted social-reformer Anna Hazare.
Bhadauriya, a lawyer by profession, said that through KHAP, as with his Pol Khol Party, the purpose is to bring corruption to the center-stage during elections. "Election results are immaterial for me as I am not in the fray to win, but to attract the electorate to the burning issues. "We are not taken seriously, but the thousands of votes mustered by us in the past substantiate our token acceptance by the public," averred Bhaudariya, who disclosed that he, in fact, admires Kejriwal. "With heavy-weight opponents in the fray, our voice gets amplified," he said, justifying the stand of taking on political bigwigs. (PTI)
