Kumar Vishwas launches all-out attack against Arvind Kejriwal

Kumar Vishwas launches all-out attack against Arvind Kejriwal

It is rumoured that the AAP leadership, upset with Vishwas for criticising Kejriwal's style of leadership and several decisions taken by the party and the Delhi government, is likely to offer him to contest the upcoming by-election from Rajasthan's Ajmer Lok Sabha seat as the party candidate.

Expressing his anger towards the autocratic functioning of the party under Kejriwal, Kumar Vishwas said, "I have been punished for speaking the truth".

AAP leader Kumar Vishwas tore into the party leadership on Wednesday after his claim for a Rajya Sabha candidature was ignored, allegedly because of his "courage to speak the truth".

The choice of the two Guptas has come as a surprise to some senior leaders, especially rebels such as Kumar Vishwas. "Speechless, ashamed and numb", Mr Yadav tweeted.Another former party leader Prashant Bhushan said AAP has given tickets to people who have not distinguished themselves in public service and have no expertise in anything to qualify for the Rajya Sabha.

In a brief address to the media the Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia highlighted a few achivemnets of the AAP nominees in Rajya Sabha. "I accept my martyrdom today", he said in front of reporters on Wednesday.

This does suggest that big leaders in their fields do not want to be associated with the AAP.




Apart from him, Ashutosh, Sanjay Singh were the other strong candidates for the Upper House.

The decision comes after the party initially chose to reach out to eminent members from different fields but later settled for a mix from within the party and outside.

Taking a dig at Kejriwal for nominating N D Gupta and Sushil Gupta to Raya Sabha, Vishwas said that he wanted to congratulate AAP volunteers that their voice has been heard in choosing the "great revolutionaries".

As per the reports, the party does not plan to field any of its leaders for the three seats in Delhi which got vacant in January.

Delhi sends three members to the Rajya Sabha. Friday is the last day for filing nominations for elections slated for January 16.

With its brute majority in the 67-member Delhi Legislative Assembly, it won't be much hard for the party to get its three members elected to the Upper House.
