Arvind Kejriwal’s friend-turned-foe Prashant Bhushan has launched fresh attack calling him “totally unscrupulous” adding that the Delhi chief minister may even join hands with Prime Minister Narendra Modi for personal gains.
While speaking at a small group of Indian-Americans and Indians in Washington, Bhushan said, “He (Kejriwal) is totally unscrupulous…The day it suits him, he will join hands with Modi. I have no doubt about it.”
Bhushan, a founding member of AAP, had parted ways with the party along with Yogendra Yadav, to form a separate outfit, Swaraj Abhiyan.
His comments have come even as Kejriwal-led Delhi government and the Modi-led Centre have been at loggerheads over a range of issues over the past one year.
Bhushan, said that he regretted having not “recognised” such traits of Kejriwal early on.
“He used people like me and Yogendra to gain credibility, and at the same time ensured that he enjoys majority in decision-making bodies of AAP so that he can go ahead with his agenda,” he was quoted by PTI.
Responding to a question, Bhushan alleged that Kejriwal was not interested in fighting corruption.
“He does not want accountability for himself. Arvind has Manmohan Singh syndrome, who never took money himself but allowed others around him to take money,” the former AAP leader alleged.
Bhushan also said that the Congress government in Punjab was a nicer choice adding that an Aam Admi Party government in the state will be much worse and chatic.
He said, “It would be rudderless and chaotic. Congress, in fact, is a much nicer choice in Punjab. In my view they would be better than AAP. They (Congress) have experience. There is no principal left in AAP.”
