AAP ignores Kumar Vishwas for Rajya Sabha

Sanjay Singh

The decision was taken after a meeting of the party top decision-making body, the political affairs committee (PAC).

At a press conference, he alleged that the AAP was sending N D Gupta to the Rajya Sabha with the support of the BJP.

Vishwas, who was angling for an RS slot, said that it is hard to survive in the the Aam Aadmi Party if one disagrees with Kejriwal. Kumar Vishwas has been the most vocal AAP member in presenting his claims.

Vishwas was speaking minutes after the Aam Aadmi Party announced it was sending Sanjay Singh, CA ND Gupta and businessman Sushil Gupta to the Rajya Sabha.

Former AAP leader Yogendra Yadav also criticised Arvind Kejriwal over the party's decision to field Sushil Gupta. "My only request is accept my martyrdom, and there is one rule for the martyrs, which is do not play with the dead body", Vishwas said. The meeting would be jointly chaired by Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia.

Patidar leader Hardik Patel had on Tuesday batted for Kumar Vishwas as AAP's candidate for Rajya Sabha. There are some prominent names doing the rounds but Sanjay Singh is the only name that has emerged without any disagreement from anyone.

The facility will have the capacity to build 300,000 vehicles annually, with production split evenly between two lines for each company.

The decision comes after the party initially chose to reach out to eminent members from different fields but later settled for a mix from within the party and outside.

Those approached included former RBI chief Raghuram Rajan, ex-BJP minister Arun Shourie and former CJI T.S. Thakur.

Over the past few weeks, Vishwas had not made any secret of his ambition of becoming a Rajya Sabha member. Whereas, the last date to file the nominations for Rajya Sabha's three seats is 5th January 2018.

On December 28, supporters of Mr Vishwas pitched tents in the party office demanding that leaders who have worked in the anti-corruption movement should be sent to the Rajya Sabha.

Delhi is now being represented by Janardan Dwivedi, Parvez Hashmi, Karan Singh in Rajya Sabha whose terms end in January next year.

The AAP, which enjoys a brute majority of 66 seats in the 70 -member Delhi Assembly, is all set to win all the three seats.
