New Delhi, May 21:
Sacked Delhi Minister Kapil Mishra on Sunday launched the “Let’s clean AAP” campaign to rid the ruling Aam Aadmi Party of the “few people who are corrupt”.
Mishra, who was first sacked as Water Minister and then suspended from the party, urged AAP workers to come together and not to leave the party, adding that they have to “snatch it back” from the corrupt people.
“My request to all those who left the party and party workers — we don’t have to leave this party, we have to snatch it back from the corrupt… I am launching a campaign called ‘Let’s clean AAP’. I urge all party workers to come together and clean the party,” said Mishra.
Just because some people are corrupt, that does not mean AAP’s revolution should end, he said.
“I won’t leave or form another party. It’s time to weed out the corrupt people,” he said.
Mishra also said Sanjay Singh, Ashish Talwar, Vibhav Kumar, Durgesh Pathak, Dilip Panday have hijacked the party.
Mishra also apologised to former AAP leaders and Swaraj India founders Prashant Bhushan and Yogendra Yadav and said the party should have paid heed to their views back then.
“I apologise to everyone, including Prashant Bhushan and Yogendra Yadav, who I may have offended when I stood by (Chief Minister) Arvind Kejriwal,” Mishra said.
“We had started ‘India Against Corruption’ campaign. We have made this party. It is not the time to leave the party, it is time to snatch it back. Give a missed call at 7863037300 to fight against corruption with me.”
“Connect with this campaign… Who wants ‘Corruption free Delhi’ and ‘Kejriwal free Delhi’ can join us,” he added. (IANS)
