After Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLA Amanatullah Khan’s serious allegations against senior leader Kumar Vishwas on Sunday, things are not looking easy for other leaders as party supremo Arvind-Kejriwal has now issued gag orders asking its members to stay away from media according to a report by Times Now. The TV channel claimed on Monday morning that an order has been issued by the AAP in which it has asked party leaders to stay away from media till further notice.

Watch what Amanatullah Khan said:

Cracks have emerged within Aam Aadmi Party after its loss in the recent MCD polls with various leaders targetting each other for acts of omission and commission. Amanatullah Khan on Sunday alleged that Kumar Vishwas was conspiring to break the party and that he had even asked some legislators to join the BJP with an offer of Rs 30 crore each as reported by the news agency IANS. “Kumar Vishwas called some MLAs and asked them that he should be made the party convenor. The BJP was ready to pay Rs 30 crore to each one of them. I think all this is being done at the behest of the BJP,” Khan who is an MLA from Okhla was quoted as saying by the agency.

Earlier in a TV interview on Friday, Kumar Vishwas said the party won’t hesitate in taking a call on a change in its leadership after its poor show in Delhi municipal polls. He said blaming the EVMs entirely for its poll defeats was wrong as there was mistrust among people for the party. Vishwas had pointed to reasons other than alleged tampering of electronic voting machines and said there is a communication gap between the top brass and volunteers.

Watch Kumar Vishwas’ interview here:

However, Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal defended Kumar Vishwas by saying that people are trying to create a rift between them. He posted a tweet on Sunday evening calling Kumar Vishwas his younger brother. “Kumar is my younger brother. Some people are trying to create a rift between us. Such people are enemies of the party. They better mend their ways. No one can separate us,” Kejriwal tweeted.

    AAP is only Govt which has proven that governance should be done on economics. Free water (still Delhi Jal Board made money and Delhi has excess water), cheaper electricity and Delhi Electricity Companies fighting in court to stop the audit, better Govt schools/hospitals/clinics, free medical-tests/medicines. .... no other state Govt could do such things in last 40 years. Why?.... If AAP succeeds, people will have better life but other parties will be finished.

      Since 2012, media is trying to bash AAP. AAP is finished, gone, dead. .. every single news is exaggerated without any proof or check. Obviously, it confuses people. But later people realize it was all fake news. ... So who benefits from fake news about AAP?

        Remember all those pictures and photo shoots with every day press conferences talking rubbish. He was almost speaking about w of India on daily basis instead of concentrating on Delhi administration. What an Irony, now issuing gag orders for his party men asking them to stay away from media. Such a looser!! That is why elders say when you attain big positions you should become humble and see the result of being cunning and selfish
