Aam Aadmi Party is currently going through existential crisis phase. The undisputed leader Arvind Kejriwal is already under attack from inside & outside of the party for the selection of outsiders, 2 Guptas for Rajya Sabha elections. There are credible charges that money power has played a big role in giving these tickets to Guptas. Also the Election Commission of India has disqualified its 20 MLAs on charges of office of profit.
The party which came in & stood for clean politics is very much seen as most compromised on this very plank. This is unfortunate but this is how the party has evolved from high ideals to merchants of power.
“The TAG of being a different party is now fully gone from AAP and now it is seen as any other political party clinging to power by all means.”
Already the party is going through regular attack from its ex-colleagues Yogendra Yadav & Kapil Mishra. It has recently added Dr Kumar Vishwas to this list. The party leadership namely Arvind Kejriwal does not want anyone to question anything that he does. He has become another KM Mayawati converting the volunteer driven Aam Aadmi Party in to a personal fiefdom of the likes of Bahujan Samaj Party.
“Volunteers of AAP is a dejected lot today. Their loss of trust in the party leadership will be very difficult to regain”
The by-elections for 20 MLAs, as and when it takes place will really show the damage done by the party in its decision for Rajya Sabha seats.
