Dadlani took to Twitter to express his views as Kejriwal’s decision sparked a row. The singer-music composer, reacting to a news portal’s report, wrote that the Aam Aadmi Party had started out as group of people who took on the government that was ‘wrong.’ He added that ‘most AAP supporters’ were still the same, though some like him were at a ‘greater risk’, but continue doing the same.  

Terming the CM’s decision as ‘plain wrong’, the Dus Bahane artist shared that this group ‘despises the political tradition of trading right & wrong for votes/image/ gain.’

Vishal Dadlani had composed a song for AAP and even campaigned for the party during the recent Assembly elections, in which AAP won 62 seats out 70 to stake claim for government formation. He has been associated with the party for many years. However, Dadlani had claimed he had quit the party and all ‘active political work/affiliation’ after the controversy over his tweets against Digambar Jain community monk Tarun Sagar in 2016.
