AAP leader Sanjay Singh on Monday said that attempts were being made to remove Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal as the party’s national convenor. This is a major allegation against senior leaders of party.
“There are attempts being made to remove Arvind Kejriwal as the national convener of the party,” Sanjay Singh told reporters at a media briefing here. For a person of stature of Sanjay Singh whom I respect as respectable leader of AAP who was in-charge of UP Elections for LS in 2014. A soft spoken very articulated person to speak out with so much of harshness is surprising. Did hie not understand the effect it has created and brought the whole issue which was played down by Yogender Yadav ji as nothing of big concern and as a matter of internal consumption with the party.
Thus this not make way for anxiety with in the camp, to which Singh belongs be labelled as once who like to see senior leaders Yogender and Prashant be stripped form the membership of PAC and NE. Singh is making issue from a non issue. The meeting on Thursday was concluded with out any major decisions. Except a sms from Arvind Kejriwal the CM of Delhi inability to attend the NE, so did Manish Sisodia.
Sending across resignation from the post of Convenor by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. Now the question is who forced Arvind to resign, none he is wise enough to decide on what is right for the party as he is CM he thought it is not right to hold two posts he sent his resignation to respect the party principles. For this if Singh want to smell some forces are conspiring to
He said that party’s national executive would meet on March 4 to discuss the issue. Why does Singh not mention to the media what are the issues that are being raised by Yogender Yadav and Prashant Bhushan are they not issue that are serious and need to be addressed by the party in its meetings in NE to keep the party on track of Swaraj. The issues raised by them are gist of what AAP had committed to the nation and to the people of Delhi and nation since it is formed.
Mr. Singh said that if there were disagreements within the Aam Aadmi Party, they should be discussed internally and not publicly. Who will remind the sermon so given by Singh him self to him.
Singh’s statement “party will not be able to function smoothly if senior members target Mr. Kejriwal and make efforts to defame the party” Does he not consider as a senior leader he is in both NE and PAC I would appreciate he honoring the statement he gave to allow the party function. When both Yogender and Prashant are saying this is internal matter whya re some in party seniors like Singh restless to make it issue and show exit door to both senior leader on who Singh is putting fire. Is he under command from top leader who holds
Party leader Ashutosh, in his tweet, downplayed the reported rift within the party.
Refusing to comment on the issue in public forum, Prashant Bhushan said that these are internal party matters.
There were reports that Bhushan in his letter to the National Executive raised questions on transparency within the party. According to reports, both leaders have offered to opt out of political affairs committee of the party, headed by Kejriwal.
Bhushan said the ‘one person-centric’ campaign was making the party look like other conventional parties and called for more “swaraj” within the organisation.
“One person-centric campaign, which was run during Delhi elections, is making our party look more and more like other conventional parties that are also one-person centric. The only difference being that we still claim that we are wedded to the principles of ‘swaraj’ while they don’t.
“Running one person-centric campaign may be effective, but does that justify sacrificing our principles? We will need to make a conscious course correction if we have to get away from a supremo controlled party,” Bhushan said in a letter to members of AAP National Executive, which met last Thursday.
