AAP is on a dangerous path, says founder member Madhu Bhaduri
After rebel MLA Vinod Binny, founder member of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Madhu Bhaduri on Sunday said humanity does not exist in the AAP and it is heading towards a dangerous direction.
Claiming that the AAP is on 'dangerous path' Bhaduri said, "The direction in which the party is heading, we will not go there. A party which kicks out humanity, then why would we work for it? And now, what is the difference between them and other parties?"
Miffed with the working of the party, Bhaduri has reportedly decided to step down from the committees on gender justice, foreign policy and national security.
"When Arvind took oath, he had talked about two things. Firstly he appealed to the people not to take or give bribe to anybody. Secondly, he sang a song on humanity and brotherhood. So, we all thought that humanity is the foundation of the party. I have been associated with the party for a long time," said Bhaduri.
She also criticized the party and Delhi Law Minister Somnath Bharti, who had conducted a raid on foreign nationals alleging drug racket and prostitution.
"The events that transpired on the intervening night of January 15 and 16, was a serious stroke on humanity. Firstly, many people died due to cold. There was no answerability on this issue. They had announced that they will construct 300 night shelters in Delhi. Secondly, women were insulted in the middle of the night. The party is silent on both these issues," Bhaduri added.
On AAP's supporting the action's of Bharti, Bhaduri said, "The party is saying that a judicial inquiry is being conducted. But at least they can apologize to the women who were insulted. That's all I demand."
"I had brought one resolution in which the party would tender its apology to the Ugandan nationals. The mistake was committed by the members and workers of the party. But they rejected this resolution," she said.
