New Delhi: Posters calling senior Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Kumar Vishwas a “traitor” appeared outside the party's ITO office in the national capital on Saturday.
The posters called Vishwas a BJP ally and demanded his ouster from the party. They also thanked senior AAP leader Dilip Pandey for “exposing” Vishwas.
Pandey had earlier this week questioned Vishwas for taking on Congress leaders, while being “soft” on Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje.
"Brother, you launch fervent attacks on the Congress but (you) say that you will not attack Vasundhara (Raje). Why?" Pandey had tweeted, referring to Vishwas’s criticism of Congress leader Sandeep Dikshit for his purported comments on Army Chief General Bipin Rawat.
The AAP has been going through a troubled period of infighting since former minister Kapil Mishra rebelled against Arvind Kejriwal and Manish Sisodia, alleging widespread corruption.
Earlier, AAP's Okhla MLA Amanatullah Khan had dubbed Vishwas 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.
In a move to placate him, the party also made Vishwas in-charge of Rajasthan which goes to the polls next year.
