Kumar Vishwas hints at 'major decision', alleges conspiracy by party
AAP founder member Kumar Vishwas on Tuesday accused its leaders of conspiring against him and said he won't compromise with his principles and soon take a call on his future action.
"I know I will be targeted. The efforts to tarnish my image will be made. But let me tell those conpirators that I will not allow you to do so," Kumar Vishwas told reporters without taking any name.
He denied that he wanted to be the Convenor of the Aam Aadmi Party.
"I have already said 10 times and even to Arvind (Kejriwal) and Manish (Sisodia) and the party that I don't want to be the Chief Minister, Deputy Chief Minister or the Convenor," he said.
Kumar Vishwas also said that he would not join any political party or the Swaraj Aandolan.
Kumar Vishwas broke down while talking to reporters, saying: "I don't know why you are here... but I had not joined the movement for this."
Sisodia slams Vishwas for criticising AAP in media
Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Tuesday slammed senior AAP leader Kumar Vishwas for making statements in the media over the ongoing infighting within the party in the wake of its civic polls debacle.
"Rather making statements on TV channels, he should raise his concerns within the party forum," Sisodia told reporters.
He also said that Vishwas was never asked to apologise for the video which he had released after the disrespect shown to soldiers in Kashmir last month.
Sisodia's remarks came minutes after Vishwas accused Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leaders of conspiring against him, asserting that he won't compromise with his principles and will soon take a call on his future line of action.
Sisodia said that Vishwas was making remarks on television which was "lowering" the morale of party workers.
"No one in the party asked Kumar Vishwas to apologise. He made it personal. The party does not belong to Arvind (Kejriwal), to me or to Kumar (Vishwas) but it belongs to lakhs of workers in India and abroad," Sisodia told reporters at Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's residence.
He added that it should not be made a personal issue.
"I along with Sanjay Singh had gone to meet him. He did not come to the PAC yesterday (Monday). He is making remarks in the media which is lowering the morale of party cadre and everyone knows who is getting benefited," Sisodia said.
