The Aam Aadmi Ka Sipahi (the Common Man's Army)[1] upholds the Right to Information Act and NREGA. The Aam Aadmi Ka Sipahi aims to popularise the UPA government's flagship programmes by the Youth Congress and train local youths in e-governance and use of computers.[2][3] Youth will work at the panchayat level to facilitate the smooth functioning of NREGA and the Right to Information Act.[4] They create awareness among the rural poor of their rights.

In 2014, the new prime minister Modi directed that Air India change its long-standing maharaja logo for one utilising aam aadmi.[5]
