Kumar Vishwas placated. But has the AAP crisis blown over?

The ongoing crisis in poll-battered Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has been temporarily averted on Wednesday (3 May) after a compromise formula was reached out between the party’s two warring factions – Arvind Kejriwal-Manish Sisodia at one side and Kumar Vishwas at the other.

As part of the compromise formula, Kejriwal gave in to Vishwas’s demand to suspend party MLA Amanatullah Khan. In addition, Vishwas has been made party in-charge in Rajasthan, where Assembly election is due next year. The decision was taken at a meeting of party’s Political Affairs Committee. Vishwas, a founder member of AAP, is currently a member of the party’s political affairs committee and is charge of overseeing the funding of the party.

It could be noted that Okhla MLA Amanatullah Khan had called Kumar Vishwas a “RSS-BJP agent” and said that he was plotting a coup against Arvind Kejriwal.

On 2 April, poet-turned-politician Vishwas had hinted at quitting the party. Blaming the coterie within AAP for a series of poll debacle, Vishwas had alleged that a section of party colleagues were hatching conspiracy against him.

This was the second attack by Kumar Viswas on party leadership following the MCD poll debacle. Speaking to a private TV channel, Viswas had earlier questioned Kejriwal’s move to hide behind his imaginary “EVM tampering” blabber for the party’s poor show.  Following this AAP supporters hurled filthy abuses at each other on Twitter over Kumar Vishwas.

After the Arvind Kejriwal-led suffered a series of drubbings – Punjab Assembly elections, Goa Assembly polls, Delhi byelection, MCD polls – the crisis in the party was deepening day by day.
