New Delhi: Amid allegations that AAP leader Kumar Vishwas is trying to "usurp" the Aam Aadmi Party, the Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal came out in support of Vishwas and scotched such rumours.
Kejriwal, in a tweet in Hindi, said Vishwas is his younger brother and 'no one can separate us'.

[blurb]"Kumar is my younger brother. Some people are trying to create a rift between us. Such people are enemies of the party. They better mend their ways. No one can separate us," tweeted Kejriwal.[/blurb]
On Friday, contrary to the party line that EVM rigging was behind AAP's loss in the Punjab Assembly and MCD polls, Vishwas had pointed to reasons other than alleged tampering of electronic voting machines and said there is a communication gap between the top brass and volunteers.

He said AAP was getting "Congressised" to an extent.
[blurb]Amanatullah Khan, a member of the party's Political Affairs Committee (PAC), its apex decision-making body, also claimed that poet-turned-politician Vishwas has been calling MLAs to his residence and coaxing them to rebel against Kejriwal or to join the BJP, reported PTI.[/blurb]
"Kumar Vishwas is trying to usurp the AAP and break the AAP. He is calling MLAs to his residence and saying that he should be made the party convener. Or else, they (MLAs) can join the BJP, which is ready to pay Rs 30 crore to each MLA. This is what (Swaraj India President and expelled AAP leader) Yogendra Yadav also wants.
"I think this is happening at the behest of the BJP. It has deployed four MLAs to take AAP legislators to Kumar Vishwas' house. This has been confirmed by at least 10 party MLAs," Khan said in a message circulated to the media.
