Taking a dig at Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) over its current turmoil, senior Congress leader Digvijay Singh on Saturday said only its Convener Arvind Kejriwal’s writ runs in the outfit, which has shown the doors to “moderate and secular” leaders.
“Mein to pahle se hi kahta tha ki na khata na bahi, jo Kejriwal kahe wahi sahi (there is no system in AAP and whatever Kejriwal says is right),” he said en-route to Delhi after staying for four days at his ancestral home in Raghogarh in Guna district.
The Congress stalwart was asked about the bitter struggle in the fledgling outfit whose two founding members Prashant Bhushan and Yogendra Yadav were today expelled from its National Executive, a key decision-making body, for “anti- party” activities.
“The party has shown the doors to moderate and secular leaders,” the former Chief Minister said when asked about the dissident leaders’ expulsion.
Asked about the sting operation purportedly showing Kejriwal using bad words for his colleagues, Singh said people had chosen him to provide clean and transparent administration in Delhi, but they are now upset with his behaviour.
On the NDA Government’s move to prorogue the Rajya Sabha to pave the way for re-promulgation of the controversial Land Acquisition Ordinance, Singh, a member of the Upper House, said Congress will chalk out its strategy based on the ordinance or Bill which the BJP-led ruling coalition will bring.
