The beleaguered Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) – which was recently hit with the disqualifaction of its 20 MLAs – sent 3 of its party members for the first time to the Rajya Sabha of India.
The party headed by chief minister Arvind Kejriwal had selected Sanjay Singh, Sushil Gupta, and N.D. Gupta who took oath of office today.
The chattering classes believe that all the 3 candidates that Kejriwal has handpicked are so weak that they do not deserve any place in the upper house of the Parliament of India.
Kejriwal’s decision has also left some of his other greedy party colleagues sulking, as they failed to get the entry into Rajya Sabha.
The opposition party BJP had criticized Kejriwal’s decision. “The way in which Arvind Kejriwal has disregarded his own party leaders and shown arbitrariness in the nomination for Rajya Sabha, it has been established that he is not head of a democratic party but a dictator,” BJP Delhi president Manoj Tiwari had said.

Tiwari had also said that Rajya Sabha is the upper house of Parliament and the way in which Kejriwal is being accused of deals in nomination it has maligned the image of not only Kejriwal but the Rajya Sabha also.
