AAP Alleged Conspiracy

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has accused the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) of plotting to arrest Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. In response, the AAP has started discussing potential replacements in case Kejriwal is arrested. The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has summoned Kejriwal for questioning in connection with the excise policy case.

AAP Concerns

Party leaders, including Gopal Rai, Atishi, Saurabh Bharadwaj, Dilip Pandey, and Sandeep Pathak, claim that the BJP wants to destroy the AAP by arresting Kejriwal. They believe that a conspiracy has been ongoing since the AAP came to power. The party is worried about finding a temporary replacement for Kejriwal, as many of its leaders are either in jail or on bail in various cases.

Previous Instances

This is not the first time the party has faced the possibility of Kejriwal’s arrest. When he was called for questioning by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in April, senior leaders like Gopal Rai and Sanjay Singh were considered as potential replacements. This time, Rai, Ram Niwas Goel, and Atishi are among the names being discussed.

Choosing a Replacement

The final decision on a replacement lies with Kejriwal. The party is considering several factors before making a decision. Gopal Rai, who has been with the party since its inception, is being considered, along with Ram Niwas Goel and Atishi. The chosen leader must be acceptable to the party’s MLAs and have the necessary experience and understanding of Delhi politics.

Keeping the Party United

The party’s main concern is to keep its MLAs united if Kejriwal is arrested. The AAP has 62 MLAs in a 70-member Assembly, and it is crucial to maintain their support. The ideal replacement would be someone trusted by the top leadership and experienced in Delhi politics.

Other Considerations

Apart from finding a temporary replacement, the party also needs to appoint a new party chief. Kejriwal has been the AAP’s national convenor since its establishment in 2012. Additionally, the party is preparing for Assembly polls in Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, and Chhattisgarh. The campaigns in these states are being overseen by Sandeep Pathak and Pankaj Gupta.

Conclusion

While the AAP faces challenges if Kejriwal is arrested, the party is actively discussing potential replacements and strategies to keep the MLAs united. The decision ultimately rests with Kejriwal, and the party is considering experienced leaders who have been with the party since its inception.
