Just when the AAP was thinking of watching the fun between BJP's Vijay Goel and other party members, news of Surendra Sharma, AAP candidate from Shahdra, questioning the selection process of AAP has hit the party hard.
AAP had earlier removed Sharma as one of its candidates after news of corruption and pending cases surfaced against him. Sharma, now has challenegd the selection process of the AAP and claims that he had disclosed all the FIRs against him and also had undergone a rigorous selection process with the AAP.
The process included an interview with Manish Sisodia, investigations into his background, voting by volunteers, a meeting with Arvind Kejriwal and endorsment by the Political Affairs Committee (PAC).
Sharma: I had disclosed about all the FIRs registered against me
Hitting out at the party Sharma said: "They have levelled false charges against me, I'll take them to court." He said that his candidature was rejected due to false allegations, even though he came out clean about all the FIRs registered against him. He even alleged that his candidature was initially approved by the PAC.
AAP leader Manish Sisodia however claimed that Sharma had not disclosed several details as he claims and even acted unfairly while conducting the bar council elections.
The party however agrees that its selection process may not be completely fool-proof and maybe a little flawed.
