New Delhi: The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Wednesday managed to avert a crisis for now after the senior leadership of the party reached a compromise with Kumar Vishwas who had hinted that he may quit the party.
People who depend on borewells for drinking water and do not have alternative sources of supply, need to obtain permission from the Central Ground Water Authority (CGWA), the National Green Tribunal has said. The NGT had last month directed the sealing of borewells run by industries, private individuals, builders or water-tanker suppliers in Uttar Pradesh’s Ghaziabad and Hapur districts within a week.
Amid the AAP’s raging internal crisis, the Congress on Wednesday alleged that the party is the "B-team of the BJP" and its top leaders, including Arvind Kejriwal and Manish Sisodia, were "hand in glove" with the RSS. The Congress’ Delhi unit chief Ajay Maken also alleged that the BJP supported Anna Hazare’s anti-corruption movement out of which the AAP was born to "wean away" the traditional voter base of his party.
The Aam Adami Party averted crisis on Wednesday, as a compromise was reached with one of its founder leaders, Kumar Vishwas, at the meeting of political affairs committee. The meeting that was held at the residence of chief minister Arvind Kejriwal, lasted almost three hours.
