Indian politics has been largely dominated by identity politics: issues of castes and religion. In the last decade, a pan-India anti-corruption movement led to the establishment of a party in the national capital of India known as the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP). This party has stirred Indian politics with its surprising landslide victories, governance model, and fierce campaigns. The AAP is the latest entry into the national arena after a fruitful campaign in the Gujarat elections. The Party has emerged like a start-up but has defied all the odds and is now all set to become the national political party. The AAP, relatively a young party, has faced many challenges and achieved many milestones. This study analyses the evolution of the AAP, its trajectory, challenges, its ability to challenge the larger parties, and strategies for upcoming elections.
