AAP MLAs For Leadership Change, Claims BJP’s Bagga
New Delhi: As the winds are blowing against AAP president and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal after a humiliating defeat in municipal polls, BJP leader Tajinder Pal S Bagga said on Saturday that half of the party’s MLAs want Kumar Vishwas to be appointed as new Chief Minister. Earlier this week, Bagga said that 34 AAP MLAs want Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s resignation incase the party loses MCD elections. Three days after the Delhi civic polls results were declared, Bagga tweeted that he has heard that 34 AAP MLAs want to see Dr Kumar Viswas as new CM.
Giving strength to BJP leaders claims, AAP leader Kumar Vishwas said that the party was open to taking a call on a change in the leadership. He also said the party leaders feel that blaming EVMs entirely for the defeat was wrong when there is mistrust among people regarding the party and its leaders.
He also told a national TV channel that party leaders realised the need for introspection over their defeat in the civic polls held on April 23 in Delhi.
The leader who is close to Cheif Minister Arvind Kejriwal also told the channel that, he was pained because of series of defeats the party is facing. If people did not vote for us in civic polls, it means there is mistrust for us among people, the channel quoted him as saying.
He also felt that blaming EVMs alone is not good. But it is a fact that we failed to reach the voters, he added.
Meanwhile, Kejriwal said that he made mistakes and said that party will introspect and correct the course.
“In the last two days, I spoke to many volunteers and voters. The reality is obvious. Yes, we made mistakes but we will introspect and course correct,” Kejriwal tweeted.
