A group of professionals on Thursday floated a new political outfit "Naya Daur" with a pledge to overhaul the present political scenario in favour of inclusive growth and development of society.

The new party, which aims to make a mark in the coming assembly election in Delhi, is a conglomeration of more than 18,000 professional including doctors, engineers, lawyers, teachers, retired army personnel and jounalists.

"We are going to contest on 70 seats in the upcoming assembly election in Delhi, for which 272 ward committees have already been formed," Sanjeev Chibbal, party president said announcing the launch of the outfit.

Terming the new party, a beginning for change in political scenario, he claimed the formation of the party was necessitated because of the void of new ideas in the present system and the increasing frustration in the new generation resulting in their political apathy.

"We are the better informed of the problems of the common man and more capable of solving any problem than the present-day politicians people," Chibbal, a doctor by profession said justifying their involvement in the outfit.

"When people lose faith in the present system them there is two possibility, either they revolt or they start on their own. We have chosen the second path," said party vice-president, Prafful Bakshi who retired as Wing Commander from the Air Force.
