The rift within the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) surfaced once again on Wednesday, with senior party leader and former Delhi Convenor Dilip Pandey questioning colleague Kumar Vishwas for being “soft” on Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje. Pandey also launched direct attacks on the Congress leader.
“Bhaiya, you criticise Congress leaders but you say that you won’t attack Vasundhara Raje. Why?” Pandey stated on Twitter, referring to a speech delivered by Vishwas while addressing the party workers from Rajasthan on Saturday.
In a video of the speech, Vishwas is heard saying that he will attack the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government in Rajasthan, but will not make any comments on Raje’s personal life.
“We will not do negative politics to topple the Maharani. We should be least concerned about what she does in her private life,” he told the party workers. Vishwas also hit out at senior party leaders, especially those close to National Party leader Arvind Kejriwal.
Earlier in May, AAP’s Okhla MLA Amanatullah Khan had called Vishwas a “BJP agent”, who was “plotting a coup” in the party, following which he had threatened to quit. Then the leadership managed to pacify him and made him the party’s in-charge in Rajasthan.
