As AAP disintegrates, senior leader says AAP ready to dissolve and merge with Congress

AAP Punjab has been facing an existential crisis after several MLAs have quit, many blaming failed leadership.

As Aam Aadmi Party is losing relevance and facing an existential crisis in the Indian political scene, the leadership of the party seems to be desperate as senior AAP leader and Punjab unit President Bhagwant Mann has indicated that the party is willing to dissolve and merge with Congress party, reported The Tribune.

According to reports, AAP senior leader Bhagwant Mann on Thursday said that his party was ready to be dissolved if it saved the country from the “unholy nexus of PM Modi and Amit Shah”. Responding to a question regarding AAP’s attempts to join hands with Congress, Mann claimed that both Modi and Shah were pursuing ‘politics of hatred’, which he said was extremely dangerous to the federal structure.

“We were earlier part of the Mahagathbandhan of 23 parties at the national level to trounce Modi. If need be, we are even ready to dissolve our party. After all, we all came from various fields, including theatre and journalism. We all formed Aam Aadmi Party for course correction in Indian politics,” said AAP Punjab President Bhagawat Mann.

Meanwhile, Shiromani Akali President and Former Deputy Chief Minister of Punjab, Sukhbir Singh Badal has reacted strongly, while stating that masks of Aam Aadmi Party were finally off and accused Mann of spreading hatred himself. He referred AAP as the B team of the Congress.

Aam Aadmi Party is in disarray as the party has lost its charm it had enjoyed five years ago. With Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal taking massive U-turns, corruption charges and lack of performance in Delhi, the party is facing an unprecedented backlash.

Delhi Chief Minister Kejriwal has been literally pleading with Congress to form an alliance in the Delhi, as he is aware of the fact that he alone can not defeat the BJP in the Lok Sabha elections, which had won all the seven seats in 2014.

Recently, Fatehgarh Sahib MP Harinder Singh Khalsa, who was suspended from the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in 2015, joined the BJP in New Delhi. Khalsa a former IFS officer had called Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal a ‘dictator’ for extreme interference in state affairs. Another suspended MP Dharamvir Gandhi, who was elected from Patiala has started his new outfit Nawan Punjab Party.

AAP Punajb has been in disarray after chief Kejriwal ‘abandoned’ the state unit. After the Punjab assembly elections, the party has faced major backlashes, defection, and other allegations. Recently, an AAP MLA had accused the party of arrogance, sexual exploitation of women and corruption. Several MLAs, including Sukhpal Khaira and HS Phoolka, have quit the party in recent months.

AAP Punjab was also widely criticised for its alleged association with Khalistani elements.

Another controversy has erupted in the name of Aam Aadmi Party after many voters in Delhi alleged that they have been receiving phone calls from the AAP to inform that their named have deleted by the BJP only to be saved by Delhi CM Kejriwal, who had restored their names back to the list.

This mysterious phone calls to the voters of Delhi alleged to be from the AAP did not even leave senior BJP leaders as senior BJP leader Vijay Goel also received a similar call stating that his party has ‘removed his name’ from the voters’ list.
