Democracy means ‘government of the people, for the people, and by the people’. It means democracy is not limited to just a process of election, but also fulfilling social and economic aspirations of the people. India is a big democratic country and in an every democratic country there is a need for good governance. Such governance includes transparency, accountability, rule of law and public participation in government system. There can only be one explanation for India's unimpressive economic record- million citizens living in poverty due to the political corruption and instability that can so easily be seen at all levels of government. Unfortunately, there are very few means for the citizens to fight the corruption in the current system. An Indian political part, Aam Aadmi Party, has displayed an outstanding courageous and democratic attitude. The common people wanted to fight the corrupt system by entering into it. Yes there are glitches and some people who give party a bad name but that doesn't mean to hit the credibility of AAP. Arvind Kejriwal had announced holding Mohalla Sabhas (Community Assembly) across 27 assembly segments where AAP candidates had won in the Assembly polls in December 2013. The MLA funds are serving throughout the people of the assembly by taking their opinions. This is the footstep of real democracy in India.
