AAP loses Vishwas, nominates Sanjay Singh, 2 others for RS

Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal

A meeting was held with key AAP members in Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's Civil Lines residence, which observed presence of 51 party MLAs, to nominate the names on Tuesday.

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

AAP leader Kumar Vishwas tore into the party leadership on Wednesday after his claim for a Rajya Sabha candidature was ignored, allegedly because of his "courage to speak the truth". A disgruntled Vishwas, who is a member of the PAC meeting, did not attend.

Kumar Vishwas, who has been given charge of Rajasthan where the party is hoping to contest assembly elections later this year, however, was expecting to get nominated to the upper house, and reacted eloquently before television cameras.

"I want to congratulate (Kejriwal) that I have accepted my martyrdom", Vishwas said. I founded the Aam Aadmi Party with Arvind Kejriwal and Manish Sisodia. Besides, there is a feeling that the entry of Sushil Gupta and N.D. Gupta to the Rajya Sabha on the AAP ticket will rob the party of its anti-corruption plank.

But, the party this time chose to select candidates from the field of law, economics and social work.

Three Rajya Sabha seats from Delhi will fall vacant by the end of this month when the tenure of Congress members Janardhan Dwivedi, Parvez Hashmi and Karan Singh end. Expressing his anger towards the autocratic functioning of the party under Kejriwal, Kumar Vishwas said, "I have been punished for speaking the truth".

The move come after weeks of difficulties finding candidates for Rajya Sabha nominations. Arvind once told me smiling, "Sir, we will hit you but you won't let you die".

Party sources said that after considering the names of personalities such as former Reserve Bank of India Governor Raghuram Rajan, and party insiders, they have nearly finalised the names of Mr. Sushil Gupta and Mr. N.D. Gupta. The last day for filing of nominations is January 5. Aam Admi Party has chosen three members for the election of Rajya Sabha seats from Delhi which would conduct on 16th January 2018.
