Ex-AAP women's wing chief slams party over pamphlet controversy, accuses it of dirty politics
Richa Pandey Mishra, who recently joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), on Sunday referred to the "pamphlet controversy" just before the Lok Sabha elections and accused the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) of indulging "dirty politics". The former Aam Aadmi Party's women wing chief's statement came just a day after she joined the BJP at its office along with disqualified AAP legislator Kapil Mishra.
Taking to Twitter, the BJP leader also said that she had joined the AAP thinking the party would do 'alternative politics' and achieve the dreams and vision everyone had waited for but soon realised that "all the party now wants is to somehow stay in the government even at the expense of sacrificing the ideals what the AAP once stood for".
Richa Pandey said, "I realised that the AAP was indulging in the same dirty politics it once abhorred. Whether it was the so-called 'Pamphlet Bomb' accusing a clean slate youth icon Gautam Gambhir or publicly humiliating and insulting senior Gandhi Nagar MLA at a public function."
"...volunteers who actually work on the ground feel insulted and disillusioned," she wrote.
