Rebel Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Kumar Vishwas made an amusing revelation about Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. While attacking Kejriwal, Vishwas said that AAP supremo used to ask him to write poems about him! The rebel leader said that Kejriwal used to say that as Dinkar used to write poems for Jawahar Lal Nehru, ‘you also write poems for me’. Vishwas said that Kejriwal then added, “How come you are a poet friend when you can’t write poems for me?” He stated that over the last three days he has written his first and last poem on him. He provided the reasons behind his not writing despite the demands made on him. The poet turned politician said that the party is not just a coalition of two or three people. Vishwas said that when Nanda dynasty had accused Chanakya of treason, the reply was, ‘Only Nanda dynasty is not Magadh’. He added that “Similarly, Aam Aadmi Party is not a party of two or three people, it is the party of millions of people who are waiting outside. Two or three people can speak against me.
The workers of the party, address the leaders as ‘Ji,’ but they address me with ‘Kumar Bhaiya’ and this is my strength in the party. It is a party of thousands of workers, who work very hard to make an impact,” he said. These revelations were made by Kumar Vishwas on a popular show on India TV, Aap Ki Adalat. Over the last few days, leaders of the AAP party are engaged in a war of words of war over the Rajya Sabha candidate selection process. AAP’s Delhi convenor Gopal Rai had slammed Vishwas, who was disgruntled as he was was not picked for the Rajya Sabha candidacy. Gopal Rai had said that “how can a person who attacks the party at every possible platform be sent to Rajya Sabha.”
He had also referred to the video of the rebel leader where he talks about the corruption in the government. He had said that the reason behind the video was to scuttle AAP’s chances in the Municipal polls. Notably, the party had lost the elections to BJP. However, the rebel leader had maintained his stand and had tweeted, “The voice of this video was, is and will remain on top for me, despite the cost I had to pay recently. I will never compromise on any stand in this video, even if more sacrifices are needed in future, because it’s not just me, it’s We, The Nation!”
