Rajesh Garg, a former Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader and former MLA from Delhi’s Rohini constituency, has sent shock waves in the AAP political camp by releasing a taped conversation with party supremo Arvind Kejriwal, who is also the Chief Minister of Delhi.

In his phone call with Garg, Kejriwal asks him to break six MLAs from the opposition Congress party. Recorded before the dissolution of the Delhi Assembly, the conversation reveals Kejriwal’s desperation to form the AAP government in Delhi by using corrupt methods.

In the previous Delhi election of 2013, Kejriwal had said he will never take Congress support to form the government, At that time, he did not hesitate to even swear by his children publicly saying that he will never join hands with corrupt Congress and BJP in case his party did not get absolute majority to form the government in Delhi.

But driven by his unsatiated hunger for political power, Kejriwal took support from Congress to become the Chief Minister of Delhi. But he could stay in the post just for 49 days – from December 28, 2013 to February 14, 2014 when the Delhi Assembly was dissolved after his abrupt resignation.

As his political career was coming to an end after the resignation, he asked his party colleague Garg to approach and buy Congress MLAs. In political terminology this unfair practice is called horse-trading.

But why did Kejriwal choose Garg for this dirty job? Because Garg earlier belonged to the Congress party and was in touch of its leaders.

Garg also revealed that it was not only Kejriwal, but other AAP leaders also called him repeatedly to rope in the Congress MLAs.

Other AAP leaders include Manish Sisodia, a close associate of Kejriwal and now Deputy Chief Minister of Delhi, who according to Garg called him over a dozen times to carry out the horse-trading job. Garg also said that he can release his conversation with Sisodia, if required.

After the release of the secret audiotape, Garg told a local TV channel that he will be murdered by Kejriwal’s goons, as AAP is full of criminals. Garg’s fear may be genuine.

A leading think tank Association for Democratic Reforms (ADR), supported by a political watchdog Delhi Election Watch, had revealed before the election that 23 (33%) of 70 AAP candidates have declared criminal cases against themselves in their affidavits.

Out of these 23 AAP candidates with criminal records, 22 have won the recent election and they are now part of the AAP government in Delhi.

As a fallout of the released audiotape by Garg, AAP has come under a seismic blow, as the AAP leadership is getting extremely nervous. A senior AAP leader Anjali Damania, who is AAP’s Maharashtra convenor, has already left the party over Kejriwal’s conspiracy to form the government.

“I quit.. I have not come into AAP for this nonsense. I believed him.. I backed Arvind for principles not Horse-trading,” tweeted Anjali Damania.

In less than a month of forming the Delhi government, AAP has proved itself to be a totally irresponsible party, as its top leaders are fighting with each other publicly.

A week ago, AAP removed its leaders Prashant Bhushan and Yogendra Yadav from political decision-making wing of the party, called Political Affairs Committee. They had raised their voice against Kejriwal’s dictatorial style of working.

As Kejriwal camp is accusing Bhushan and Yadav of anti-party activities, the dissidents are leaving no stone unturned to expose Kejriwal’s evil designs. Therefore, the possibility can’t be ruled out that while releasing Kejriwal’s taped conversation, Garg is playing hand in glove with the rebels.

RMN cannot independently confirm the authenticity of the released audiotape.

As the dissenting voices are getting louder in AAP, the fledgling party is already facing an existential crisis.
