New Delhi, May 4: Dismissing the allegations against party leader Kumar Vishwas over having an affair with a party volunteer, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Monday termed it baseless and a media conspiracy.
The party has even called it a conspiracy by rival BJP to defame its leader.
Defending Kumar Vishwas, AAP leader Sanjay Singh told the media, "The issue has been played up as if Kumar Vishwas has illicit relations with the woman. The woman herself has named four people for maligning her image on social media."
