At a time when the AAP leaders are busy in mudslinging former AAP MLA Rajesh Garg has accused AAP convener and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal of indulging in horse trading. This is in stark contrast of how AAP portrays itself.
Garg, who quit from party before Delhi Assembly election 2015, has released an audio of a sensation conversation between him and Kejriwal, last year, in which the Delhi CM is reportedly heard talking about buying Congress MLAs in Delhi to form government in the national capital.
Releasing the audio clip Garg, former legislator from Rohini, has claimed that the voice in the audio clip is of AAP chief Kejriwal. Garg said that Kejriwal along with Manish Sisodia and Sanjay Singh tried to lure Congress legislators from Delhi and form government.
Attacking AAP over failing democracy in the party Garg said that party's very foundation has corroded.
Soon after the sting was released in the media, AAP leader in Maharashtra Anjali Damani quit from the party.
"I quit, I have not come into AAP for this nonsense. I believed him, I backed Arvind for principles not Horse-trading," tweeted Damania.
This fresh development has given yet another opportunity to the rival parties to attack AAP and Kejriwal's hypocrisy of accusing other parties of indulging in malpractices and AAP itself is doing the same. Both the BJP as well as Congress has now come out all guns blazing at AAP over this sensational claim.
Earlier, hours after party officially provided reasons why it removed two founding members Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan from political affair committee, a new twist in the tale of AAP rift has come to fore.
The present tussle between Bhushan-Yogendra camp and Arvind Kejriwal camp is not new. The wrangling started even before fledgling party fought Delhi Assembly election this year.
Reports said, Prashant Bhushan's sister Shalini Gupta, who worked as a coordinator for AAP's Global group, had written a couple of e-mails to overseas supporters urging them to think twice before donating fund for the party.
She also questioned party for giving tickets to candidates with chequered records.
