An alumnus of IIT, an employee of Nokia Siemens, a teacher, a law student and an IAS aspirant are among the 10-member Lucknow District team of Arvind Kejriwal's Aam Aadmi Party (AAP).
Anmol, who passed out of IIT-Roorkee in 1996, was appointed as the convener of the team on Sunday.
There are no "presidents" or "vice-presidents" in the party, to lend "a feeling of equality" among the members.
Anmol, who runs a Civil Services Coaching Centre since 2005 in Lucknow with his wife Shivani Singh, said he turned to AAP "to practice what he preached to his students". "I felt a sense of hypocrisy when I taught my students to follow a certain righteous path but did nothing about it myself."
In the coming months, he hopes "to bring together informed, aware and responsible citizens and strengthen the organisational structure of the party in Uttar Pradesh".
