Washington: To garner support among the Indian-Americans in US, the Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party is organising a convention in Chicago on Friday.

Indian-Americans from across the country are expected to attend the AAP USA convention, which would be addressed live through a video conference by the Aam Aadmi Party founder, Arvind Kejriwal.

"We are getting together to underscore the need to take a much stronger stance against corruption," Dr Munish Raizada, member of the AAP Convention organising committee told a news agency.

The convention, he said, is expected to pass a resolution demanding more accountability from the political leadership so as to make the public institutions more effective.

Two key leaders of the Aam Aadmi Party -- Kumar Vishwas and Professor Yogendra Yadav - will be coming from India to address the supporters.

"Kejriwal will talk on "AAP`s vision for India`s growth and NRIs` role in it", while Prof Yadav will talk about "How to empower citizens in a true democracy," and Vishwas will share his thoughts on "65 years of freedom in the eyes of a poet,"," AAP US convention spokesman Harsh Taneja said.
