How did Kumar Vishwas enter politics

The anti-corruption movement led by Anna Hazare saw Dr. Kumar Vishwas as one of the many proponents of the movement. He was also arrested on 16 August 2011 for supporting the movement.

Here's how the Aam Aadmi Party came into being. Sometime during the agitation, Arvind Kejriwal, one of the eminent supporters of the movement, had a difference of opinion with Anna Hazare, where Hazare wanted the Jan Lokpal movement to be politically neutral, while on the other hand Kejriwal was of the opinion that since no progress was attained through talks with different political parties, it was necessary to directly get involved in politics. India Against Corruption, the organisation guiding the movement, conducted a survey on this issue using social networking sites, the result of which indicated support for politicisation. Dr. Kumar Vishwas was one of many such renowned people who supported this move of Arvind Kejriwal.

A party was launched in Delhi on 26 November 2012 under the leadership of Arvind Kejriwal, and was named the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), where "Aam Aadmi" means "the common man". Dr. Vishwas became a member of the Aam Aadmi Party. The party contested elections for the first time on 4 December 2013 for the Delhi Legislative Assembly.
