Ranvir Shorey, actor: “This is the only party that has a pulse on what’s going on in the country right now. Look at other parties; what are they talking about? Water and electricity problems have still not been solved. People come into power and embezzle money for five years.”
Raghu Ram, TV personality: “AAP is the new face of Indian politics.”
Tejaswini Kolhapure, actress: “Over the years, we have just blamed the government, and no one is really doing anything. I strongly felt that I needed to do something about this apathy.”
