NEW DELHI: The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has suspended former MLA Nitin Tyagi for alleged ‘anti-partyactivities during the recent Lok Sabha elections. Tyagi responded to this action by claiming it was taken against him for ‘speaking the truth.’
In a communication addressed to Tyagi, Gopal Rai, the AAP Delhi state convener, said: “It has come to our notice that you have been involved in anti-party activities during the Lok Sabha Elections 2024.The party has taken a decision to suspend you from its primary membership pending disciplinary proceedings.”
Responding to the news, Tyagi wondered if “speaking the truth in the party has become an anti-party thing?”
Sharing Rai’s letter on X, Tyagi said what is anti-party is “destroying its basic ideals”.
“It is anti-party to ask for votes for those against whom people had chosen you,” he said tagging Rai, in an apparent reference to AAP-Congress alliance in Delhi for the Lok Sabha polls.
