Serious question marks on AAP's future with new controversies
Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), the political party born out of a movement against corruption, won 28 seats in Delhi Assembly elections in its electoral debut at its toddler stage, surprising the nation and leaving an example. But party chief Arvind Kejriwal's resignation from Delhi Chief Minister's post not only proved his political immaturity, but also betrayed the sentiments of strong AAP supporters.
This decision of quiting the government in Delhi by Kejriwal, went against AAP which managed to win only 4 seats out of 430 on which it fielded its candidates. The four seats came only from one state i.e. Punjab. The honchos in the party including Kejriwal himself lost the elections with a big margin.

It looks the party is going through a tough time these days with some big names resigning from AAP. When AAP MLA Vinod Kumar Binny first revolted against the party leadership, he was seen as someone with some hidden ambitions.

However, before and after the Lok Sabha polls many big names like legal cell's head Ashwini Upadhyay, Advocate Ashok Agarwal, Shazia Ilmi, Captain Gopinath have resigned.

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."
