Phoolka has been taking up the causes of victims of anti-Sikh riots in Delhi in 1984.

He is the latest among big names like former Infosys CFO V Balakrishnan and former Royal Bank of Scotland CEO Meera Sanyal to join the party. Arvind Kejriwal’s call for clean politics has been attracting several senior corporate executives and businessmen into its fold.
