I accept my martyrdom, says Kumar Vishwas after AAP ditches him for RS
New Delhi : Aam Aadmi Party ignored Kumar Vishwas over Sanjay Singh as they announced nominees for the Rajya Sabha. Denouncing the decision, Kumar Vishwas slammed Arvind Kejriwal with statements laced with sarcasm.
"Maine jo jo sach bola aaj uska pururskar dand swaroop mujhe diya gaya. Arvind ne mujhe muskurate huye kaha tha ke ‘sir ji aapko marenge par shaheed nahi hone denge’ main unkobadhai deta hu ke main apni shahadat sweekar karta hu," Vishwas was quoted as saying by ANI. (I have been ‘rewarded’ today for speaking truth. Arvind once told me smilingly, ‘sir you will be killed but we won’t let you become a martyr’. I congratulate him and accept my martyrdom.)
Vishwas was talking to media person soon after the announcement was made by the Aam Aadmi Party over Rajya Sabha seats.
Not convinced with the party's decision, Vishwas later decided not to attend the PAC (Political Affairs Committee) meeting. He is the member of the PAC.
Psephologist and Swaraj Abhiyan member Yogendra Yadav also reacted to this on Twitter.
“I used to say, whatever his other faults @ArvindKejriwal cannot be bought. Defended him against Kapil Mishra’s allegations. Now I don’t know what to say. Speechless, ashamed and numb.”
