Best-selling author Chetan Bhagat, an ardent supporter of Arvind Kejriwal's AAP, today lashed out at the new political outfit for the dharna in Delhi by calling it an "item girl of politics".

Chetan Bhagat denounced the two-day dharna by Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and rest of the Cabinet which was called off last night and said he was 'ashamed' that they had resorted to such an action.

Chetan Bhagat told news channel, "AAP has really, really let me down. I feel so let down by their antics. The cost-benefit analysis of this just does not add up".

The author pointed out that two police officers had been sent on leave following the Aam Aadmi Party(AAP) protest but the party had "brought the Capital to a standstill, demoralised the police force and depressed business sentiment".

"They are in a hurry to come to Lok Sabha polls. They want instant attention and like in Bollywood when an actress can't make it, she becomes an item girl. They have become the item girls of Indian politics and item girls do not go very far," he added.
