“Kejriwal chalta gaya aur Jab karwan bana to Yogender aur Prashant ko nikal diya. Swaraj ke asulon ko bhi bhul gaya”
“Aam Admi Party” had emerged from India Against Corruption movement launched by Anna Hazare. Arvind Kejriwal, Yogender Yadav and Prashant Bhushan were the top leaders who founded Aam Admi Party in November 2012. The party’s main motto was Swaraj means the self-governance by people’s participating in decision making process.
Aam Admi Party had contested its first election under the leadership of Arvind Kejriwal. Yogender Yadav and Prashant Bhushan were also the prominent faces during the first election in 2014. But, after winning 28 seats out of 70, AK’s AAP just remained in Delhi’s regime for 49 days only.
The party won its second election with a solid majority of 67 out of 70 seats in February 2015. It was an acid test for Kejriwal to attain Swaraj. However, in the beginning of his political innings he expelled his two close colleagues, Prashant Bhushan and Yogender Yadav who worked hard for Aam Admi Party.
Shut your mouth otherwise get lost
After forming the government, Kejriwal started acting like a traitor when Yogender Yadav and Prashant Bhushan had written a joint letter to National Executive highlighting that Kejriwal’s one sided decision making approach had compromised the party’s core principles of Swaraj. Both were expelled from the party terming their activity as anti-party.
They were expelled from the party as they had initiated to reveal Kejriwal’s self-centred approach of decision making. The both leaders alleged that Kejriwal did not hear them and suddenly expelled them who stood by him in all odds.
Kejriwal’s aim to attain Swaraj was completely a political stunt to befool the public. The sacking of Prashant and Yadav proved that Kejriwal is a liar who misguided the public by his fake vision of Swaraj.
Kejriwal sold out the soul of the anti-corruption movement
Yogender Yadav had slammed Kejriwal for joining hands with Bihar Chief Minister, Nitish Kumar and RJD chief Lalu Prasad in Bihar. He said that Kejriwal had sold out the soul of the anti-corruption movement. Yadav alleged that Kejriwal is a hypocrite who only boasts but not delivers.
Anna Hazare also slammed Kejriwal for expelling Prashant and Yadav. He disapproved the move of Kejriwal to throw out founding leaders of AAP.
Old colleagues calls Kejriwal a “Hypocrite and Shameless”
The news reports published in media revealed the anger of Bhushan against Kejriwal as the former AAP leader called Arvind Kejriwal a “hypocrite and shameless” after Kejriwal said he would be happy to have Prashant and Yogender back in the party.
Bhushan refused the Kejriwal’s claim that Delhi’s former law minister Jitendra Singh Tomar had kept him in dark on his fake degree issue.
Yogender Yadav said that Aam Admi Party is only Arvind Kejriwal’s party. The so called messiah of Delhi people is only a traitor.
An open letter of Prashant Bhushan exposes Kejriwal
Prashant Bhushan had written an open letter to Arvind Kejriwal. The letter exposed Kejriwal’s hypocrisy and his dual face.
Important text of the letter
“After the Lok Sabha elections, you felt that the party was finished, and could only be revived if it were able to form the government again in Delhi. So immediately after the elections, you started talking to the Congress party for taking its support again to form the government in Delhi.”
“Instead of abiding by the majority decision, you said that while that may be the majority view, as the Convenor of the party, you have the right to take the final decision, and that you would go ahead with seeking Congress’ support.
“Then came the issue of whether the party should contest Assembly elections in Haryana and Maharashtra. Again the matter was put to the National Executive by email, and the majority – 15 is to 4 – said that that should be left to state units to decide in accordance with our principle of Swaraj. But you did not allow that decision to be implemented.”
“When the Delhi elections were announced and campaigning started, you instructed volunteers to start a campaign ‘Modi for PM, Kejriwal for CM’. It means that our party has gone down on its knees before Modi at a time when it was positioning itself as the main opposition to Modi.”
“When the process of candidate selection for the Delhi Assembly election of 2015 started, I found there was no transparency. Contrary to earlier practice, we were not posting candidates’ names on the website”.
“If I had wanted the party to lose the Lok Sabha elections, I would have resigned and gone public with my reasons at that very time. If Yogendra Yadav wanted the party to lose, he would not have convened that meeting and stopped me from going public. Instead, he worked his heart out for this campaign, defended the party on innumerable occasions on TV. And yet you have the temerity to accuse even him, along with me, of working for the defeat of the party!”
“Your coterie has also accused my father, my sister and myself of trying to capture the party. Arvind, you know very well that none of us have even wanted any executive positions or tickets for ourselves or any friends or family members.”
“Arvind, this party was founded with a lot of idealism by thousands of people, especially young people, who came out and spent a lot of their time, effort, energy, money, sweat and blood in order to create a vehicle for alternative politics, in order to create a party that would practice clean and transparent politics. But unfortunately, all those principles are being betrayed by you and your coterie, who are currently in control of the party. And it has become a supremo-oriented, high-command culture kind of party.”
