The Leader of Indian political party Stand Against Corruption 'Aam Aadmi Party' Arvind Kejriwal (C) holds his party symbol of a broom during the symbol launch in New Delhi on August 3, 2013. The party is set to contest forthcoming parliamentary and state elections. Kejriwal, whose hero is Indian independence icon Mahatma Gandhi, first came to prominence in 2011, serving as the chief lieutenant to veteran anti-corruption campaigner Anna Hazare during the latter's 12-day hunger strike. The protest against graft galvanised huge support among India's middle class dismayed by the nation's deep-rooted corruption. But while Hazare has since backed away from the headlines, his protege has carried on the fight.
