Vishwas hatched conspiracies to topple Kejriwal govt, alleges AAP
NEW DELHI: The Aam Aadmi Party on Thursday hits back at rebel leader Kumar Vishwas, alleging he was at the "centre" of conspiracies hatched to topple the Arvind Kejriwal government in Delhi after the municipal polls.
"There were attempts to bring down the government and Kumar Vishwas was the principal mover and at the centre of those conspiracies," said AAP's Delhi Convener Gopal Rai.
Rai added that most of the meetings in this regard involving a few MLAs were held at his residence. Kapil Mishra was a part of it and later he was removed from the cabinet. Rai referred to a video that Vishwas had released indirectly attacking the Kejriwal government on the issue of corruption.
He said that through the video, Vishwas sought to scuttle the AAP's chances in the municipal polls, which the party eventually lost to the BJP. "He is a person who attacks the party from every possible public platform. Can such a person be sent to the Rajya Sabha?" Rai asked. The leader has also clarified that the Rajya Sabha nominations by the party were well thought. He has also challenged the opposition to prove that there was any transaction of money between the party and the nominees.
Meanwhile, AAP leader Sanjay Singh, businessman Sushil Gupta and chartered accountant Narain Dass Gupta on Thursday filed their nomination for the three Rajya Sabha seats that will fall vacant this month in Delhi.
Singh along with other leaders did a roadshow on Thursday. The leader thanked all the volunteers and people and said that his fight in the upper house will be focused on anti-corruption.
Singh reached the District Magistrate (Central) office at Daryaganj to file the papers atop a truck packed with supporters and playing patriotic songs. Aam Aadmi Party leader Ashutosh accompanied him. Narain Gupta and Sushil Gupta later filed their nomination papers. An alumnus of Delhi University, Narain Gupta has been on the Board of International Federation of Accountants- an amalgam of 164 regulatory accounting bodies in 116 countries.
