AAP Versus AAP: Stung Swati Maliwal Says Her Party Trying To Protect A ‘Goon’

New Delhi: Stung by her own party AAP’s allegation that she was the face of a ‘BJP conspiracy’ and lied about being assaulted by Arvind Kejriwal’s PA, Swati Maliwal hit back hard at Aam Aadmi Party.

“The leaders who joined the party yesterday dubbed a party worker active for 20 years as a BJP agent. Two days ago, the party had accepted the truth in a press conference and now a U-turn,” Maliwal posted in Hindi on X hours after AAP leader and Delhi minister Atishi said at a press conference that the Rajya Sabha MP was a BJP pawn.

“This goon is threatening the party, saying that I will expose the secrets if arrested. He is roaming around under full protection. Under pressure from him, the party accepted defeat. To save a goon, the party questioned my character. I have been fighting alone for the women of this country, and will continue to do so. You are free to assassinate my character, truth will come out eventually,” Maliwal added. The ‘goon’ was an obvious reference to Kejriwal’s PA Bibhav Kumar, who she accused of assaulting her when she visited Kejriwal’s house on May 13.

At a time when AAP hoped Kejriwal would get public sympathy as the Supreme Court granted him interim bail to campaign for Lok Sabha polls, this ugly fight within the party is the last thing it wanted.

All 7 Lok Sabha constituencies in Delhi will vote on May 25, the sixth of seven phases.
