“Aam Aadmi Party may be screaming aloud of clean sweep in the upcoming assembly polls in Punjab but in wake of internal feud and rising differences with central leadership, the party is staring at a major split ahead of polls.”
Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is claiming to sweep upcoming assembly polls in Punjab by getting at least 100 seats out of 117. But in stark contrast to their claims, the internal rift within the party is growing at an alarming rate ahead of polls. Three of the party MPs have already locked horns with high command and dictatorship style functioning of Arvind Kejriwal.
The three MPs – Dr. Dharamvir Gandhi (Patiala), Harinder Singh Khalsa (Fatehgarh) and Prof Sadhu Singh (Faridkot) have been vociferous in raising their voice against party high command for autocratic style of functioning and lack of internal democracy within the party. They also demanded that expelled leaders Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan be brought back.
AAP MP term Kejriwal as “Dictator”
It must be noted here that Patiala MP Dr Dharamvir Gandhi went on record to brand Kejriwal as “dictator” and further said that there is no difference between AAP and Mayawati’s BSP & Mulayam Singh Yadav’s SP.
Gandhi further slammed Kejriwal by stating that he is trying to lord over the party from Delhi like a viceroy.
Everyone wants to be CM
AAP is facing a major crisis of leadership in state and in absence of any credible leadership, Punjab unit of AAP is in a state of mess. Besides lacking organizational structure, AAP in Punjab doesn’t have a vision or agenda for the state. In the absence of political base and organization structure in state, every leader of AAP is aspiring to be next chief minster of Punjab.
