AAP rift widens: Punjab party member writes to Kejriwal, alleges 'conspiracy' against party

New Delhi, March 25: AAP National Council member Ashok Talwar on Wednesday wrote a letter to party chief Arvind Kejriwal, hinting at a 'conspiracy' against the party.

According to news reports, Talwar, an NC member from Punjab, said that he was receiving calls and messages from different numbers to attend an informal meet ahead of scheduled party talks on March 28.

In a letter to Kejriwal, Talwar said the meeting has been called on the "pretext" of having discussion on Swaraj and internal democracy and alleged that some "deep conspiracy for vested interests" was on to destabilise the party.

The latest development comes in the backdrop of reports that AAP leader Shanti Bhushan was going to hold a meeting with the dissidents ahead of party's National Council meet, which he subsequently denied.

"I have been receiving calls as well as messages from different numbers to come to Delhi one day prior to the NC meeting...on the pretext of having discussion on Swaraj.

"They have been calling repeatedly to confirm the presence on 27 so that the arrangements for stay, food etc can be made in advance as already 124+ members have confirmed their participation in the meeting where deliberations would be held to 'save Swaraj' and internal democracy in the party," the letter said.

Talwar further alleged that some "deep conspiracy" for vested interests was going on to destabilise the party and went on to name a few people accusing them of "floating" the information.

He asked Kejriwal to be "vigilant" and inquire about the matter and to stop the "conspirators" from anti-party activities.

Reacting to the developments, senior party leader Ashutosh said that a "lot of members" have raised this issue. "Told them they are free to raise this issue on the 28th," he said.
