AAP says Raaj Kumar Anand resigned as he was ‘scared of threats’


After Delhi Minister Raaj Kumar Anand resigned from the Arvind Kejriwal-led Cabinet and subsequently exited the Aam Aadmi Party, AAP leader Saurabh Bharadwaj on Wednesday said the party believes that Anand was “scared of threats” of the Enforcement Directorate (ED) and Tihar. 

Addressing a press conference, Bharadwaj said that the MLA’s resignation is the moment for the party, when they said ‘we had said so’. 

The AAP minister claimed that Arvind Kejriwal’s arrest was made with the intention to “break the party” and the Delhi-Punjab government. 

“Time and again we said that the intention behind arresting Arvind Kejriwal was to break the party and governments of Delhi and Punjab. This was said time and again by Arvind Kejriwal,” he said.  

Bharadwaj also said that the AAP party will not call Anand “dishonest and cheater” and the former colleague had warned them that as soon as he become a little active, he gets a phone call.  

“Many of our colleagues will feel that we hate Raaj Kumar (Anand) and will call him dishonest and cheater. We will not say any such thing. I believe that one who runs family got afraid of the threats of ED and Tihar Jail, not everyone is Sanjay Singh. I believe that he was scared, many times he told his party colleagues that ‘as soon as I become a little active, I get a phone call,” he said.
