New Delhi: A day after rebel leader Kumar Vishwas gave vent his anger against the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief Arvind Kejriwal after being denied a Rajya Sabha ticket, the ruling party hit him back on Thursday . It alleged that Mr Vishwas was at the “centre” of conspiracies hatched to topple the Arvind Kejriwal government in Delhi after the municipal polls.

AAP’s Delhi convenor Gopal Rai claimed that after the MCD polls in April last year, “there were attempts to bring down the government and Kumar Vishwas was the principal mover and at the centre of those conspiracies.”

“Most of the meetings in this regard, involving a few MLAs, were held at his residence. Kapil Mishra was a part of it and later he was removed from the Cabinet,” he said during a Facebook Live session.

Mr Vishwas did not react to Mr Rai’s allegations. On Wednesday, the disgruntled AAP leader alleged that he was being punished for saying the truth about Mr Kejriwal’s decisions and that he accepted his “martyrdom.”

During the social media session, Mr Rai referred to a video, which Mr Vishwas had released, indirectly attacking the Kejriwal government on the issue of corruption. Mr Rai said that through the video Mr Vishwas sought to scuttle AAP’s chances in the municipal polls, which the party eventually lost to BJP.

“He is a person who attacks the party from every possible public platform. Can such a person be sent to the Rajya Sabha?” Mr Rai asked.

Earlier in the day, Mr Vishwas had tweeted that he will never rethink the stance on the various issues that he took in the video.

“The voice of this video was, is and will remain on top for me, despite the cost I had to pay recently. I will never compromise on any stand in this video, even if more sacrifices are needed in future, because it’s not just me, it’s We, The Nation! (sic)” he tweeted.
