Senior Aam Aadmi Party leader Kumar Vishwas, without taking any names, indirectly criticised the AAP government in Delhi and Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on corruption. “If after riding the plank of anti-corruption to form a government in Delhi, your own people indulge in corruption and if you(the leader) try to save them and issue no statements, people will question you,” he said in a veiled reference to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. In a video message posted on Friday, Vishwas also requested the listeners to take note of his message rather than his profession as a poet or politician.

Citing history, Vishwas went on to add that our preference for our political leaders led to divisions in our country.  “We mostly focus on our leaders instead of our issues. Modi-Modi, Arvind-Arvind, Rahul-Rahul, yeh saare bas kuch saal rahenge, par desh 5,000 saal ka hai.” Interestingly, Kejriwal retweeted the video saying, “Bohot shandaar video. Andar tak hilaa deta hai. Zaroor dekhein (Brilliant video that will shake you to the core. Must watch).”

Vishwas starts off the 13-minute video by speaking on the recent violence in Kashmir during the Srinagar bypoll and the low voter turnout in the region. The AAP leader said the government must introspect why the people of Kashmir did not choose to vote. “If you gather votes in the name of nationalism and then if the nation’s sons are slapped, people will question you,” Vishwas said in reference to the video of a CRPF personnel heckled by Kashmiri youth.

While speaking on farmer suicides, Vishwas also recalls the incident when a Rajasthan farmer, Gajendra Singh, committed suicide during an AAP rally in Jantar Mantar. “Hum jantar mantar pe baithe the. Hamare saamne bhi ek kisaan phaansi pe jhool gaya tha. Hamein bhi neend aana bandh hogayi thi. Lekin kya ispe koi corrective measures utha sakta hai? (A farmer committed suicide in front of us when we were at Jantar Mantar. We couldn’t sleep for some time after that. But can some correct measures be taken on the issue?)” he asked. He then critcised the government for failing to recover the debt from large corporate holdings.

In his video, Vishwas also took on the Modi government for failing to accord Pakistan the status of a terrorist nation. “Why doesn’t this government declare Pakistan as a terrorist nation in the Parliament and decide that they won’t hold any more talks? Instead, the government has bestowed the Business status of Most Favoured Nation to it,” he claimed.

    For almost 99.99 of the time, Vishwas was speaking on very important national issues, however TOI made the breaking news on KV & AK and killed the real message. Its unfortunate & unhealthy for society that journalism is getting down day by day. People must wake up now, else don't blame any systemic fault or any politician for that matter

        ReEngineering the AAP is needed urgently. Brahmins, Banias who are dancing over Arvind's head must be shunned and shunted out of power not out of party Only, we few old dedicated, fearless,party founderz can save Arvind from the mafia of Brahmins, and Banias, if he opens up his learning capabil . This is our duty and beauty about us. Dr.kumar was forced into hindu धर्म on the basis, that his parents were forced into, on the basis of some delusions his g g s were driven into unwanted hindu धर्म on the baseless lies that Ram,Atma, Ishwar existed, which is proved to clear lies. Now, I have full विश्वास that Dr.Kumar was also driven into Hinduism #without_his_concents. Similarly, #kashmir_innocents were forced into Islam without their concents. His concepts I must clarify, he was my colleague. What he is speaking based upon some Brahminical bent of mind. I am confident that he takes some learning from my "World Against Gods" page. He has to learn DNA, EVOLUTIONARY BIOLOGY.

          No re-engineering will work. AAP is like a cancerous tumor and needs to be removed urgently to save Delhi's health.

Why don't President, PMO,SC,HC, speak the truth, TRUTH that Allah is NON-EXISTENT, really nonexistent just like nonexistent Ram or any gods or ghosts. And let truth prevail that Ramayana was just a mythological good old story, like bible

                Kumar's leaving AAP is over due now. He neither needed by the party nor he sees any purpose in continuing with AAP. More he delays leaving AAP, more he will loose the opportunities. He should learn from many who have left AAP or have been kicked out of AAP. The day is near when Kejriwal may kick him out. Where should he go? He should answer this question fast.

                  Leaving the party will put arvind into worse doldrums . And leaving party will keep strengthening Brahmins, Banias who are dancing over Arvind's head. And Arvind will sunk further intoकिचड. Only, we few old dedicated party founderz can save Arvind from the mafia of Brahmins, and Banias. This is our duty and beauty about us.

                  It seems he is preparing the ground for exit or to join some Political Party and the common query that comes to mind is Why he had not raised the issues which he is talking now with the AK or AAP National Exeuctive meet or why not ask them to convene and discuss the issues threadbre instead of just spreading the video message as an responsible Political Leader ????

                    From his video i clearly analyzed that his vision is based on some baseless fundamentals which he has to change. Today, india and the world ,very urgently need a visionary, not missionary . 09871966707 Guitaruncle Sushil Ahuja 4C/16, ORN New Delhi
