Mocking Delhi chief minister and Aam Aadmi Party chief, former party member Mayank Gandhi has raised doubts on AAP’s chances on winning in the upcoming Punjab elections. Indirectly slamming Kejriwal for raising doubts on the Indian Army’s claim of surgical strikes across LoC, Mayank Gandhi tweeted, “Was hoping AAP wins by defeating BJP-Akali. But with anti-army statement,only chance 4 AAP to win Punjab will be Pak province of Punjab :)”. “Some AAP leaders hv instructed vols to attack, abuse and unlike my posts and tweets. From individual abusers to collective :). Welcome,” Mayank Gandhi hit out. The former senior leader of AAP quit the party in November last year stating that he had lost interest in politics. He had also blamed the functioning of the party.

In his recent Twitter posts, Mayank Gandhi has been vocal about AAP’s ‘inability’ to take criticism. Quoting a tweet that said that AAP members don’t debate based on logic, Mayank Gandhi added that most party members see political motive behind criticism. He tweeted that AAP has only one rebutal to offer, “Also,when are you joining BJP, Swaraj? You are jealous and frustrated etc. No one bothers about what is said, but just personal attacks.”

Mayank Gandhi is not the only one slamming Kejriwal for his statements questioning the Army and the government. The Delhi CM has been slammed on social media and on television channels for politicising the surgical strikes. Kejriwal, while congratulating Prime Minister Narendra Modi for having the courage to carry out the strikes, had also asked the government to furnish proof to ‘silence’ Pakistan. Kejriwal has said that with Pakistan denying the surgical strikes, there are doubts in the minds of the international community about the authenticity of the Indian Army and government’s claims.

Kejriwal is not alone, Congress leaders Sanjay Nirupam and P Chidambaram have also demanded proof. While Nirupam has called the strikes ‘fake’, Chidambaram has said that it is natural for people to seek proof. BJP has come out all guns blazing against the two parties, slamming them for doubting the Indian Army and not showing the spirit of national solidarity on such a sensitive issue.

      I would request Mayank hi and the rest like him to join rival yogendra group and raise the level of political discourse. That would be better for our democracy. Congress and BJP had their share of governance in the past and had always maintained status quo and India has not progressed the way we deserve.Go Mayank we want people like you to contribute positively and not like the BJP way......

          Yeah, I agree. AAP has ordered 100 well made seats from a furniture company in Punjab and they are sure to get these seats.

            Kejriwal always desperate that media will write his name in connection with Modi. He has lost all his credibility. A proven liar and crook. His own guru Anna Hazare calls him Keechad (Mud). AAP will be over after Punjab and Goa election.

                AAP raised expectations and has simply become Arvind Kejriwal Incorporated. His wife quit her job and I ume in a few years it will become an all family affair with chamchas ruling the roost at the national and state level. Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan have the right credentials but I suspect their sympathy for Kashmir in the context of its past will turn many voters looking for an alternative away from them. They need to come clean on their stand in this matter.
