Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday hit out at those who recently left the party, calling them “opportunists”.
While addressing a rally in Punjab, Kejriwal attacked the Congress-led state government and said it had betrayed people as it failed to deliver on its poll promises.
Kejriwal said that few days back some people left AAP and our political opponents started saying that AAP has begun to disintegrate. “Nobody in the country has the courage to disintegrate the party,” he added.
“Congress, BJP and Akali Dal have tried their best in the last five years to weaken the party but God has been with us,” he said.
“Those who have left AAP were not worthy of staying in the party. They were opportunists and were greedy for tickets and posts. Kejriwal said.
Besides senior lawyer HS Phoolka, two rebel AAP leaders from Punjab, Sukhpal Singh Khaira and Baldev Singh have quit the party.
Kejriwal also accused Prime Minister Modi-led government at the centre of creating hurdles in development works in the national capital and trying to kill him.
