Kumar Vishwas: I have been punished for speaking truth

13890004904Kumar-vishwas-rahul-gandhi

The decision was taken after a meeting of the party top decision-making body, the political affairs committee (PAC).

"I have been "rewarded" today for speaking the truth".

Among the nominees, Singh has been associated with the party since its inception, while Sushil Gupta is a Delhi-based businessman and ND Gupta a chartered accountant. Therefore, Kumar Vishwas banged on AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal. He resigned from the party in November a year ago when he reportedly told the Delhi Congress president that "AAP has assured him of an RS nomination".

He said that the leaders will review progress in countries such as Somalia and South Sudan. I urge everyone to cooperate with the commission of inquiry.

Aam Aadmi Party ignored Kumar Vishwas over Sanjay Singh as they announced nominees for the Rajya Sabha.

After that, the party considered leaders from within and the name of Sanjay Singh was accepted by almost everyone involved. PAC member Kumar Vishwas was not invited while Sanjay Singh did not attend.

The decision comes after the party initially chose to reach out to eminent members from different fields but later settled for a mix from within the party and outside. The Rajya Sabha berths are now represented by Congress leaders Dr Karan Singh, Janardhan Dwivedi and Parvez Hashmi.

But the singer has accused the media maven of being an example of " sanctimonious Hollywood ", reports an entertainment website. Someone from his team reached out to her to see if she would talk to him, and she said she would if it was for an interview.

The move to not field any party leader to the Rajya Sabha is also seen as an attempt to put an end to the intra-party rivalry. "My only request is accept my martyrdom, and there is one rule for the martyrs, which is do not play with the dead body", Vishwas said. Last week, Vishwas's supporters had staged protests outside the AAP office, demanding a Rajya Sabha seat for him. AAP reportedly also approached the former RBI governor Raghuram Rajan to represent the party in the Upper House, who denied the proposal.

He recalled that Kejriwal had once told him in the presence of 22 other party leaders that while he would kill him, he won't let Vishwas become a martyr.

Elections to three Rajya Sabha seats from Delhi would be held on January 16.

Sushil Gupta, a billionaire businessman who was once a member of the Congress party and had lost the 2013 Assembly polls from the Moti Nagar seat to the Aam Aadmi Party, has been projected by AAP as a philanthropist with major contributions in the field of education and health. Moreover, today AAP's deputy CM Manish Sisodia chose three members to contest for the Rajya Sabha seats.
