Vishwas hits out at AAP's 'palace politics', posters call him 'traitor'
The unease in Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is on the verge of another outburst with senior leader Kumar Vishwas hitting out "palace politics" while his detractors dubbing him a "friend of BJP".
Vishwas was at the centre of a clash in the party in the past two months following the party's debacle in Assembly elections and Delhi civic polls.
Vishwas, who was recently appointed the party's Rajasthan affairs in-charge, said he would ensure the workers under him adhered to the Aam Aadmi Party's (AAP) "core principles" and went back to its "basics".
His comments came as posters appeared at the Delhi party office describing Vishwas as a "friend of the BJP" and a "betrayer" who should be "thrown out" of the party.
"We (AAP) did not come into being for these conspiracies and palace politics hatched by five-six people. We are for the causes based on which the party was born at the Ramlila Maidan. The party will fight the Rajasthan polls on its real principles," Vishwas told reporters here.
He had earlier said that a "coterie" around Delhi Chief Minister and AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal was "responsible" for the party's recent poll debacle.
The poster against him said Vishwas was "a friend of the BJP, he is not a poet but a traitor. He attacks while in hiding and backstabs. Remove such a traitor."
The posters also "thanked" former AAP Delhi convenor Dilip Pandey for "exposing" Vishwas. Pandey recently accused Vishwas of being "silent" on the "transgressions" of the BJP.
