New Delhi, May 2: The infighting within the Aam Aadmi Party reached to new levels on Tuesday with Kumar Vishwas complaining against the remarks of AAP MLA Amanatullah Khan on being an RSS agent deployed to break the party. Vishwas said that he is disappointed with the way the party had taken after the incident unfolded and will announce next course of action at the end of the day.
Vishwas was quoted by News18,“It’s not just one MLA. I think someone else is behind it. After six continuous losses, our movement against corruption has been corrupted. Arvind Kejriwal and Manish Sisodia know that I don’t want to be CM, deputy CM, or the party chief.” The remarks of Kumar Vishwas comes in the wake of the resignation of Amanatullah Khan from the party’s top decision-making body, Political Affairs Committee.
In an earlier development, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said that Vishwas has made it a personal issue even though the difference could have been resolved in the Political Affairs Committee itself. Sisodia also rejected Kumar’s claim about being one of trio-Arvind Kejriwal, Manish Sisodia and Kumar Vishwas- who formed the party. Sisodia said, “The party was not founded by the three of us but by thousands of workers.”
Earlier Kumar had said that AAP has turned into another congress. He was referring to the denial of the ruling party in implementing the recommendations of the Shunglu Committee. The committee had raised questions over the irregularities in the functioning of the government.
Aam Aadmi Party failed in communicating with people on its performance in last two years, he had criticised the party for giving tickets to wrong people in MCD polls. He added that we need to boost the morale of the party workers and decisions should not be taken behind the closed doors.
