Posters have been put up outside the Aam Aadmi Party office in Delhi calling for the ouster of party leader Kumar Vishwas, accusing him of being a traitor and indulging in anti-party activities.
The posters thank Dilip Pandey, who quit as convenor of the party’s Delhi unit in April following AAP’s defeat in MCD polls, accuse Vishwas of colluding with the BJP and backstabbing party leaders.
Pandey had earlier this week questioned Vishwas for taking on Congress leaders, while being “soft” on Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje.
“Brother, you launch fervent attacks on the Congress but (you) say that you will not attack Vasundhara (Raje). Why?” Pandey had tweeted, referring to Vishwas’s criticism of Congress leader Sandeep Dikshit for his purported comments on Army Chief General Bipin Rawat.
The AAP has been going through a troubled period of infighting since former minister Kapil Mishra rebelled against Arvind Kejriwal and Manish Sisodia, alleging widespread corruption.
Earlier, AAP’s Okhla MLA Amanatullah Khan had dubbed Vishwas an “RSS-BJP agent” and accused him of “plotting a coup in AAP”, following which Vishwas had threatened to quit the party if no action was taken against the former. The party’s Political Affairs Committee (PAC) later suspended Khan.
