The internal feud in Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) saw a National Council member from Punjab demanding that Arvind Kejriwal launch an inquiry into a parallel meeting called by a section a day before the body’s crucial meet on March 28 even as another member from Rajasthan sought the “lawn” of the Delhi CM’s residence for the said meeting.

In a letter to Kejriwal, Ashok Talwar, an NC member from Amritsar, said the meeting has been called on the “pretext” of having discussion on ‘Swaraj’ and ‘internal democracy’ and alleged that some “deep conspiracy by vested interests” was on to destabilise the party.

Interestingly, Rakesh Parikh, an NC member from Rajasthan, claimed to have sent the SMS to Kejriwal for holding the meet at the lawns of his official residence.

“Can u allow us to use the lawn of CM house for holding discussions on 27th. Have invited all NC members on 27th. Best venue could be convenor’s house (sic),” was the text of Parekh which he put out on twitter.

“Have sent this SMS to @ArvindKejriwal. Though he may not b able to read it being busy in Delhi assembly,” he added.

The latest development comes in the backdrop of reports that AAP leader Shanti Bhushan was going to hold a meeting with the dissidents ahead of party’s National Council meet, which he subsequently denied.

Talwar claimed of having received repeated “calls as well as messages” from different numbers inviting him to attend a “discussion” on March 27.

“I have been receiving calls as well as messages from different numbers to come to Delhi one day prior to the NC meeting…on the pretext of having discussion on Swaraj.

“They have been calling repeatedly to confirm the presence on 27 so that the arrangements for stay, food etc can be made in advance as already 124+ members have confirmed their participation in the meeting where deliberations would be held to ‘save Swaraj’ and internal democracy in the party,” the letter said.

Talwar further alleged that some “deep conspiracy” for vested interests was going on to destabilise the party and went on to name a few people accusing them of “floating” the information. He asked Kejriwal to be “vigilant” and inquire about the matter and to stop the “conspirators” from anti-party activities.

Reacting to the developments, senior party leader Ashutosh said that a “lot of members” have raised this issue. “Told them they are free to raise this issue on the 28th,” he said.

    The Animal Farm in Delhi is fast unfolding on the national stage. The pig Napolean and his pack of loyal bloodhounds are going to devour the slapped-face Prashant Bhushan and the inked-face Salim Yadav from the National Executive. Only Napolean with pigs and dogs will rule Delhi for the next 5 years. Only those with following ideology will stay in the Aam Aadmi Party: AAP ka ek hi dharm: Khujli First AAP ka ek hi dharmgranth: Swaraj by Thagpurush Khujli (Lokpal dumped in the dustbin with PB) AAP ka ek hi devata: Mufflerman AAP ke dharmguru: Swami Navin Jindal (naturopathy fame) AAP ka ek hi gotra: UPAdravi gotra AAP ka ek hi aadarsh: Mohammad Bin Tughlaq AAP ki ek hi pooja: Kursi pooja AAP ka ek hi prasad: y BiPaSa (Bijali, Paani, Sapane) AAP ka ek hi mantra: Muftmeva Jayate!
