AAP rift out in open? Posters calling Kumar Vishwas BJP friend, traitor go up outside party office

Posters went up outside the Delhi office of Aam Aadmi Party on Saturday morning against senior party leader Kumar Vishwas. In the images shared on social media, the posters called Vishwas a friend of BJP and also a traitor.

"Bhajpa ka yaar hai, kavi nahi gaddar hai (He is BJP's friend, a traitor and not poet)," the poster said. The poster also demanded his removal from the party.

Kumar Vishwas has been on the receiving end of party workers ever since differences had come to the fore when Vishwas refused to toe the party's official line that "manipulation" of electronic voting machines was the main reason behind its recent string of electoral defeats.

After this, Aam Aadmi Party's Okhla MLA Amanatullah Khan caused quite a controversy by calling him an "RSS-BJP agent" and accused him of "plotting a coup in AAP", following which Vishwas had threatened to quit the party if no action was taken against the former.

The party's Political Affairs Committee (PAC) later suspended Khan. And, Vishwas was also appointed as AAP's Rajasthan in-charge for the state Assembly polls scheduled to take place next year.

AAP spokesperson Dilip Pandey had questioned Vishwas for attacking the Rajasthan Congress but remaining silent on Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje of BJP.

Vishwas has been meeting volunteers as well as people from Rajasthan. He also met the farmer leader Rampal Jat on Friday to get acquainted with the issues related to agriculture.
