Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) founder and father of Prashant Bhushan, Shanti Bhushan on Wednesday questioned Arvind Kejriwal’s organizational skills and said there is no internal democracy in the party. The differences between Arvind Kejriwal and other party leaders came out once again.
The party’s internal democrace and convenor Arvind Kejriwal’s alleged dictation practice to other leaders have been a point of discussion since a long time. The parties two founder members and stalwarts, Yogendra Yadav and Shazia Ilmi have already left the party on the same issue.
Angry Shanti Bhushan said, “Arvind (Kejriwal) is a great leader and a great campaigner, but in my opinion he lacks organizational ability. He does not have the kind of competence which can spread the message of the party all over India, which can quickly create elected structures of the party which nobody will be able to blame”.
The party last month sacked Karan Singh, a senior volunteer, after he along with other party workers formed AAP Volunteers Vichar Manch (AVAM) to raise issues concerning volunteers, complaining lack of internal democracy in the party. Bhushan had come out in support of AVAM.
