Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Kapil Mishra on Sunday launched ‘Let’s Clean AAP’ project to ‘rid party’ of ‘corrupt people’. Firing a fresh salvo, the sacked leader called on all-ex AAP members who quit the political outfit citing corruption in the cadre, to join hands and clean the party. The former Delhi minister urged all the former AAP members to stake their claim and said that party was an amalgamation of the people who wanted to fight corruption. He said that it is about time that all those who left should unite and make the AAP ‘corruption-free and Kejriwal-free’ for the betterment of the people.
“It is not the time to leave the party, it is time to reclaim it,” the minister was quoted as saying by ANI. “Give a missed call at 7863037300 to fight against corruption,” the sacked minister added. “I would like to make an appeal to all my friends and colleagues of the Anna agitation period who fought against corruption, the ones who left their jobs for the party and then later on left the outfit because they felt betrayed, the ones who think that leaders like Ashish Talwar, Sanjay Singh, Durgesh Pathak, Dilip Pandey have hijacked the party and are running the political organisation according to their will without thinking of the party workers and common man,” he said.

Mishra said that he feels apologetic that he stood behind Kejriwal like a blind-follower. “I would like to apologise to few people who were leaving the party and at that time like a blind follower I stood besides Arvind Kejriwal. I especially want to apologise to Prashant Bhushan ji, Yogendra Yadav ji and to all those who raised their voice against brewing corruptions in the party but I did not pay heed, I would like to request them to save the party. Lets clean AAP and eliminate the corrupt from the party,” he said.
