Rumblings in AAP take new turn, Mayank Gandhi threatens to quit
Rumblings in Aam Aadmi Party took a new turn on Saturday when AAP leader Mayank Gandhi threatened to quit, accusing a “small group of party decision-makers” in Delhi of targeting him for decrying removal of Prashant Bhushan and Yogendra Yadav from the party’s Political Affairs Committee.
He also said that a concerted effort was being made on the social media to portray him as “anti-party” and “anti-AK” (Arvind Kejriwal). Gandhi claimed similar attempts were made to “humiliate” and oust Yadav and Bhushan from the party but they overturned that plan by not quitting. “A price may have to be paid. A small group of party decision-makers in Delhi have already removed me from the informal BBM group. Attacks have begun against me from Ashish Khetan and others,” he wrote in a blog defying a “gag order” imposed by the party.
The comments were made in a fresh blog titled ‘2nd note to volunteers-again from the heart’ by the AAP leader who had abstained from voting in the National Executive meeting held on Wednesday.
Khetan had taken a jibe at Gandhi saying some people give interviews and write blogs while others work to create history.“Some people give television interviews all through the day while some work for the progress of Delhi and the country.
