Mother of all controversies has just surfaced with an ongoing tussle between senior AAP leader Yogendra Yadav and another Haryana leader Naveen Jaihind. Reportedly, in the wake of this tussle only Yadav has resigned from various posts he was holding in the party. Senior AAP member Manish Sisodia has also written a letter to Yadav, in which he has accused him of attacking Arvind Kejriwal.
Here's an important question comes up, what are those factors which are creating rifts with in AAP?
Vinod Kumar Binny, the first AAP leader who publicly displayed his anti-AAP sentiments says, ?The party was born with a noble idea and won people's faith within a short span of time. But now the party head has himself forgotten party's ideology. The party's popularity has reduced at 10 times more speed than it had gained. There is no future of the party. Lack of internal democracy is the main reason of all conflicts?.
Growing internal conflicts within AAP have raised serious question marks on party's future. People's detachment from the party was evident in the Lok Sabha polls. Some hopes of comeback may end with the latest controversies surfacing.
Political analyst Dr Purushottam Agrawal says, ?Yes, off-course the party is passing through the most crucial period ever before, and I don't rule it out. The party is out of order with some internal conflicts. Although Kejriwal's premature resignation from Delhi government has brought the party in to criticism, the party has never gone out of its stand and yet the party head has not got answers of his questions neither from the BJP nor from the Congress. The party has to stand on its ideology and fight to own people's faith.?
Professor of Political Science at JNU, Vidhu Verma has to say that AAP has deviated from its path of social movements like corruption, injustice, black money; the issues which were the base of the party's politics.
?Internal conflicts in the party is at the pick and many leaders and spokepersons are quiting the party. The party will not be able to survive. The party will live or die in future could not be predicted but it can't make a national presence, although the party has a good presence in Delhi and some other cities."
