New Delhi, Nov 12: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) issued a statement overruling all allegations of Rakesh Aggarwal against the party's chief ministerial candidate -- Arvind Kejriwal.

The party, which seems to have been engaged in an internal war between Kejriwal and its rebel leader Aggarwal, did not waste time to clarify its stand on the entire controversy.

AAP, in its statement, said, "Rakesh Agarwal, whose name has figured in some reports pointing fingers at the party functioning, is not a member of any committee or functioning body in the party."

"He has never been part of party's any decision making body. He had only approached AAP earlier this year during the time of a rally of auto rickshaw drivers at Ramlila Maidan," added in the statement.

Earlier Kejriwal's supporters created ruckus inside a conference hall in Delhi where Aggarwal was holding a press meet.The AAP supporters protested against Agarwal who called Kejriwal a 'dictator.'

All is not well with the AAP as the party is being bogged down by an internal crisis. It all began when Agarwal, who is a senior leader in the AAP called Arvind Kejriwal 'a dictator' and accused him of 'building a personality cult.'

Agarwal in an open letter to Kejriwal warned him of his authoritarian rules, which in turn has forced many volunteers to turn their backs on the party. Agarwal said that the party was already a victim of vote-bank politics and political inexperience.

"Delhi has been witnessing a crass personality cult built around you. I am yet to see a poster, banner, press conference, pamphlet or a radio advertisement that does not bear your name, image or voice," Agarwal has said in the letter.

He goes on to add that party workers quietly abide to all orders given out by Kejriwal. "Nothing moves without your nod. Power is delegated to those who quietly do your bidding instead of raising red flags," he says in the letter.
