NEW DELHI: A day after a former AAP MLA stung Delhi Chief Minister and party Chief Arvind Kejriwal, accusing him of poaching six Congress MLAs to form the government in the national capital, the party has come out with its defence, saying that Kejriwal is talking about political realignment and not poaching.
Former party leader Anjali Damania, who on Wednesday quit the party, has given 48 hours to Kejriwal to order an inquiry into the allegations.
The video clip, which was released by former AAP MLA Rajiv Garg, allegedly caught Kejriwal asking his former MLA Garg to try and separate six Congress MLAs, to ask them to form their own party and to support the AAP from the outside.
NewsX has exclusive details of Kejriwal's comeback plan. Sources have told NewsX that even after coming back, he will stay away from the tussle in the public sphere and will concentrate on Delhi's governance, leaving the task of dealing with dissenters to Manish Sisodia, Ashutosh and Ashish Khetan.
Kejriwal has sealed the fate of both Prashant Bhushan and Yogendra Yadav and in all likelihood, they will be ousted from the party on 28th March, when the party's national executive is scheduled to meet, sources added.
