War in AAP after Amanatullah Khan’s suspension revoked, Vishwas not invited as speaker for National Executive meeting


Aam Aadmi Party has reportedly revoked the suspension of its MLA, Amantullah Khan, leaving senior leader Kumar Vishwas incensed. An angry Vishwas has taken a potshot at his party’s leadership by calling Khan just a mask with the mastermind being somebody else.

Vishwas said that he wanted the AAP leadership to return to basics but ‘it appears they didn’t like that.’

“My name is not in the list of 2 November National Executive meeting. But if workers want me speak, I will do so,” he was quoted by Aaj Tak.

Vishwas said that he was not worried about the Rajya Sabha ticket or Amanatullah adding that on many national issues he had found himself alone within the party.

Okhla MLA Amanatullah Khan was suspended by AAP in May this year after he accused senior party leader Kumar Vishwas of being an “RSS-BJP agent”. The suspension was widely seen as a compromise after Vishwas had threatened to quit the party.

Weeks later, another prominent face within the AAP, Dilip Pandey, had questioned Vishwas why the poet-politician was soft on BJP in Rajasthan.

In a tweet, the former convener of Delhi’s AAP unit had asked, “Brother, you profusely abuse Congress supporters, but you say you wouldn’t speak against (Rajasthan chief minister) Vasundhara (Raje Scindia) in Rajasthan? Why this?”

Vishwas was in-charge of the party’s Rajasthan affairs after he allegedly threatened to quit the party post his public spat with Amanatullah.

AAP has announced it will contest polls in Rajasthan.
