Kumar Vishwas' Poetic Taunt After He Was 'Not Allowed' To Speak At AAP's Council Meet

Aam Aadmi Party's founder member Kumar Vishwas has alleged that his name was not on the list of speakers at the National Council meeting held on Thursday.

After the meeting, Vishwas fired the first shot, saying that he was not allowed to speak at the council.

For the first time since AAP's inception in 2012, his name was not on the list of speakers at the NC meeting, but was asked to speak as a state in-charge, he said.

"My name was not on the list of speakers and I was not allowed to address the volunteers. When state in-charges were asked to speak, even I was asked to do so as the in-charge of Rajasthan," he said.

"To this, I said, 'I don't have anything to say right now'," Vishwas told PTI when asked what transpired in the closed-door meeting here of the party.

The party, however, denied that he was not allowed to address the gathering.

The council -- where bitter differences had earlier led to the ouster of founders Prashant Bhushan and Yogendra Yadav -- witnessed no such heated incident this time.

But some AAP members said this was the lull before the calm and were waiting to see who would strike first.

The party, however, denied that he was not allowed to address the gathering.

"He was asked to speak on party preparations in Rajasthan. He did speak, not once but twice," said Delhi unit's chief spokesperson Saurabh Bhardwaj.

Vishwas disputed the party's claim, and demanded the video recording of the event be made public.

Moments later tweeted a poem taking a dig at AAP’s top brass.
