Vishwas, who was made party’s Rajasthan in-charge after a spat with Delhi MLA Amanatullah Khan, was interacting with the party workers in Jaipur
Without taking any names, Vishwas in a social media post said those who were saved by the Indian armed forces during floods are now celebrating India’s defeat.
Vishwas had held a “coterie” around Delhi Chief Minister and AAP supremo Arvind Kejriwal “responsible” for the party’s recent poll debacles, while distancing himself from the official party line of “manipulation” of electronic voting machines (EVMs).
“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,” Kumar Vishwas said
The posters called for eviction of Vishwas from the party and also thanked Pandey for ‘revealing the truth about him’.
Vishwas could not be contacted despite repeated attempts.
‘After the statements made by Amanatullah Khan that the PAC had objected to, he had stepped down from the body,” said Manish Sisodia.
Let’s take a look at what has happened to each of the spearheads in the party since its resounding and unanticipated performance in the 2013 Delhi Assembly elections.
While their meeting was only minutes-long, Kejriwal soon emerged with Vishwas in tow.
Political Affairs Committee (PAC) member Amanatullah Khan had criticised Kumar Vishwas, calling him agent of BJP
Interestingly, Arvind Kejriwal retweeted Kumar Vishwas’s video praising it.
Kumar, in his plea, has sought quashing of the March 16 order of the trial court, which had directed the police to register the FIR. He alleged that the “the story” of complainant has “developed artificially”.
Police lodged the FIR at Sarojini Nagar police station in pursuance to the directions of Metropolitan Magistrate Pankaj Sharma.
The police had earlier said in court that the inquiry did not throw up any substantial evidence against the poet-turned-politician.
Vishwas’s comments on caste-based reservations brought much embarrassment to Kejriwal during a rally in support of Rohith Vemula
