Rift wide open in party as AAP names Rajya Sabha candidates

AAP took a dig, says Kumar Vishvas involved in conspiracies to overthrow Arvind Kejriwal-led Delhi Govt

The final decision was taken at the party's Political Affairs Committee (PAC) meeting at Kejriwal's residence.

"I congratulate Gupta for working with Manish Sisodia for the last 40 years, with Kejriwal for 12 years, with party workers for seven years and for party legislators for the last five years".

It's official. The Aam Aadmi Party has chose to send senior party leader Sanjay Singh, businessman Sushil Gupta and chartered accountant ND Gupta to the Rajya Sabha. The supporters of AAP's rebellious leader Kumar Vishwas have earlier staged a protest to choose him as party representative but the leaders decided otherwise. His nomination by the AAP comes at a time when the party leadership has been busy responding to various income tax notices and allegations by the BJP over alleged financial impropriety. "I said it is impossible".

Kumar Vishwas on Wednesday launched an all-out attack against his friend and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal accusing him of keeping him out of the Rajya Sabha.

This does suggest that big leaders in their fields do not want to be associated with the AAP.

The three included AAP leader Sanjay Singh, former Congress leader Sushil Gupta and former Institute of Chartered Accountants of India president Narayan Dass Gupta.

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. Mr Vishwas said that it is "difficult to survive in the the Aam Aadmi Party if one disagrees with Kejriwal".

The three seats will fall vacant as the terms of Karan Singh, Janardhan Dwivedi and Parvez Hashmi will end on January 27. Once, while smiling Kejriwal told me 'we will kill you but will not let you become a martyr.

Former RBI Governor Raghuram Rajan declined the "offer" in November a year ago, stating that he has no plans of leaving academics. The AAP, which enjoys a brute majority in the 70-member Delhi Assembly, is set to win all three seats. Whereas, the last date to file the nominations for Rajya Sabha's three seats is 5th January 2018.
