A former Haryana-cadre IPS officer, Ranbir Singh Sharma, who has quit the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), on Saturday said several candidates of his recently-formed Rashtriya Lok Swaraj Party (RLSP) would contest the ensuing assembly polls in Haryana.
Sharma and some of the former AAP members, who accompanied him, said they had left the AAP as its leaders, especially Arvind Kejriwal, gave little import to democratic values within the party.
Sharma said the RLSP would finalise its election symbol soon and could join hands with a party upholding "swaraj" (rule of people) as its base. He said the RLSP stood for decentralisation of political power, decentralisation of economic power and right to recall a political leader.
He refused to comment on the BJP rule or Prime Minister Narendra Modi saying it was too early to comment on the subject.
