Posters of 'traitor' Kumar Vishwas surface outside AAP's office in Delhi

Two days after the public works department (PWD) slapped a 'penal rent' of about R 28 lakh on the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), senior party leader Sanjay Singh criticised the Centre, alleging that government officials were working on the behest of BJP leaders.

"Bhajpa ka yaar hai, kavi nahi gaddar hai (He is BJP's friend, a traitor and not poet)", the poster said. It also "thanked" former AAP Delhi convenor Dilip Pandey for "exposing" Vishwas.

A day after hitting out at "palace politics" in the party, senior AAP leader Kumar Vishwas on Sunday said he never aimed to occupy any throne and he had always been a grounded person.

Vishwas, who was recently appointed AAP's Rajasthan in-charge, said he would ensure workers under him adhered to the party's core principles and went back to the basics.

On Saturday afternoon, the AAP filed a police complaint stating that some people have tried to defame Vishwas and misused another party leader Dilip Pandey's name with the intention of creating a rift in the party.

Mr Vishwas, who is the party's Rajasthan incharge, held a meeting of almost 600 volunteers at the AAP office sitting on the ground. "Brother, you launch fervent attacks on the Congress but (you) say that you will not attack Vasundhara (Raje)".

"We [AAP] did not come into being for these conspiracies and palace politics hatched by five-six people".

The posters called Vishwas a BJP ally and demanded his ouster from the party.

Khan was later suspended from the party's Political Affairs Committee (PAC). He attacks while hiding and backstabs.
