Political career:

In 2012, Kejriwal launched the Aam Aadmi Party, as he believed that electoral politics was the next logical step in the fight against corruption and defeated Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit in the 2013 Delhi Legislative Assembly election. Following the election, he took office as the Chief Minister of Delhi on 28 December 2013. He resigned 49 days later, on 14 February 2014, stating he did so because of his government's inability to pass his proposed anti-corruption legislation due to a lack of support from other political parties.

2014 Parliament elections
Kejriwal said in January, prior to his resignation as chief minister, that he would not contest a seat in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections. He claimed party members persuaded him to change his mind,  and on 25 March, he agreed to contest against the BJP prime ministerial candidate, Narendra Modi, from Varanasi, but lost the election.
