This former Congress leader and vocal Kejriwal critic is now AAP Rajya Sabha nominee

It is indeed true that there are no permanent enemies in politics, especially when the political party is as opportunistic as Aam Aadmi Party. Amidst major speculations on who would be nominated, the names came as a surprise to many as a little known Sushil Gupta was one of the names.

As per Aam Aadmi Party, Gupta’s brief profile is as follows:

What the profile fails to mention is that till November, 2017, Gupta was a Congress leader, who had even fought elections in 2013 on Congress ticket. This former leader was also executive committee member of Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee and General Secretary of Delhi Pradesh Youth Congress Committee.

Soon, Congress leader Ajay Maken tweeted how just 40 days back Gupta had tendered his resignation, claiming he has been promised Rajya Sabha seat.

Amusingly, in 2016, Gupta had celebrated ‘vasooli divas’ demanding recovery of Rs. 854 crore Aam Aadmi Party led Delhi Government had spent in advertisements.

Meanwhile, many people were critical of Gupta’s nomination, including former and current team members of Aam Aadmi Party.

Deputy Chief Minister of Delhi, Manish Sisodia, has said that since Gupta runs a lot of schools which provide free education, he has been chosen. However, the picture could be different.

AAP co-founder Yogendra Yadav, too, was vocally critical of the decision.

They even accused of tickets being bought in Punjab elections and ‘accounts fudged’ and disappointment over AK (Kejriwal) going to ‘such an extent’.

Meanwhile, Kumar Vishwas, too, voiced his disappointment at ‘punished’ for saying the truth.

Rebel AAP leader Kapil Mishra also accused of killing the anti-corruption movement (by siding with Gupta) through his tweets.

Meanwhile, Arvind Kejriwal, instead of answering his volunteers and colleagues, resorted to retweeting tweets which praised him and his decision.
