Kumar Vishwas defies ‘gag order’, says will speak out against AAP whenever required

New Delhi, May 2: A day after the Aam Aadmi Party reportedly issued gag order against some of its leaders including Kumar Vishwas, the latter broke his silence, saying, “I will speak out against AAP whenever required”. Vishwas further added that certain decisions of the party have been disappointing, and could compel him to take a “major decision”.

“Five years ago, I did not sign up for this. Today, we have disappointed a major section of our grassroot workers. Neither I, nor they signed up for this,” a teary-eyed Vishwas said, while addressing the media on Tuesday.

Addressing the rumours regarding his alleged attempt to replace himself with Arvind Kejriwal as the chief minister of Delhi, Vishwas said, “I have no intention whatsoever of becoming the CM or deputy CM. I have never had such a wish, nor would I ever will.” He further accused AAP MLA Amanatullah Khan of spreading false propaganda against him to demotivate the party cadres.

The statement of Vishwas came a couple of days after Amanatullah accused Vishwas of plotting to turn 34 AAP MLAs against Kejriwal. He further accused Vishwas of acting on behest of BJP, which was ready to pay Rs 30 crore for each AAP turncoat legislator.
