  • Former leader of AAP Kumar Vishwas has mocked and ridiculed the alliance talks between AAP and Congress
  • Rahul Gandhi on Monday pleaded with Arvind Kejriwal for a Cong-AAP alliance in the National capital on Twitter
  • Responding to the tweet, Arvind Kejriwal said 'Your tweet shows gathbandhan is not you will or desire but only a show,negotiations are still going on'

Joining the Twitter-plead and denial game between Arvind Kejriwal led-Aam Aadmi Party(AAP) and Rahul Gandhi-led Congress, former AAP leader Kumar Vishwas has mocked the leaders and said that the only thing that makes sense in the entire episode is the word 'U-Turn'.

On Monday, Rahul Gandhi pleaded with Arvind Kejriwal for a Cong-AAP alliance in the National capital. Taking to Twitter, he said that if Congress joins hand with AAP in Delhi it would mean the rout of the BJP. He also added that even though Congress' doors are still open, AAP chief has made yet another U-turn. 

Minutes after his tweet, Arvind Kejriwal replied saying:

"Which U-turn are you talking about? The negotiations are very much ongoing. Your tweet shows gathbandhan is not you will or desire but only a show.  I am saddened that you are indulging in political attacks. The need of the hour is to save the country from Modi-Amit Shah. It is unfortunate that you are dividing votes in Uttar Pradesh and other states, and helping Modi."

Mocking the above episode, Vishwas, in reference to Arvind Kejriwal said:

('In all this, only "U-turn" is worth reading and understanding')

Mockingly, he also asked whether the two parties seeking each other's support was akin to someone who is drowning latching on to a twig to save themselves:

In an scathing attack, he also retweeted Kejriwal's tweet, back on November 28, 2013 saying that he would not ally with either Congress or the BJP.

Kumar Vishwas was shunted out of a key post by the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), which he founded along with Arvind Kejriwal and other leaders in 2012. Earlier too, Kumar has expressed his disappointment and anger on the alliance talks between AAP-Congress.
