Minutes after Aam Admi Party (AAP) leader Kumar Vishwas broke down before the media saying he won’t apologise for the video, in which he had criticised the party convener and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia hit back at him saying he was hurting the party’s image, a CNN-News 18 report said. Speaking to media persons, Manish Sisodia today said that the AAP leader was making things personal and nobody had asked for his resignation. He also slammed Kumar Vishwas for speaking to the media and said that party workers are losing confidence because of this penchant for speaking to the media about crucial party matters.
Earlier, an emotional Kumar Vishwas alleged that some leaders of the party were hatching a conspiracy against him, an Indian Express report said. Stressing that he won’t compromise on the issue, the AAP leader added he would take a call on his future course of action soon.
“I know I will be targeted. The efforts to tarnish my image will be made. But let me tell those conspirators that I will not allow you to do so,” Kumar Vishwas was quoted by Indian Express as telling.
The deputy chief minister further said that Vishwas must stop saying that Arvind Kejriwal, Manish Sisodia or other leaders created AAP, he said that the formation of the party happened due to the workers of the party.

While speaking about allegations made by AAP MLA Amanatullah Khan, Kumar Vishwas said he did not give much attention to the statement as he knew action would be taken against him. “But when I saw no action against him, I realised that there is some kind of conspiracy. I know Khan is just a mask,” he was quoted as saying by the report.
Denying that he would not be joining any other political party, Kumar Vishwas further said he never wanted to become a chief minister or a deputy chief minister but will remain a volunteer.
