AAP clears air about Admiral Ramdas, calls media reports misleading



By Newsgram Staff Writer

The Aam Aadmi Party has strongly condemned the false media reports speculation about AAP veteran and ombudsman Admiral L Ramdas. The Party has termed these reports as false, misleading and based on fiction done with a malicious intent.

A section of the media today reported that Admiral Ramdas could face heat from his colleagues in the coming days as a section of the party leadership feels his controversial letter lamenting differences acted as a catalyst to the public spat between leaders. Media reports stated that Ramdas had addressed a scathing letter to AAP’s national executive a day ahead of its meeting on February 26, expressing anguish over the growing divide and trust deficit between the senior leadership.

Clarifying its stand regarding Admiral Ramdas, AAP has outrightly rejected all frustrated attempts to drag his name into controversy and termed those reports as unfortunate and against all ethics. Admiral Ramdas will continue to be an important guide for the party as it prepares to take on new responsibilities and challenges.

“The party considers it a privilege to have been able to convince Admiral Ramdas to take over the role of its ombudsman and will be always thankful to him for having agreed to render his services for this critical role. Admiral Ramdas will continue to be an important guide for the party as it prepares to take on new responsibilities and challenges,” AAP said in a press statement today.

The BJP protest came in the wake of the alleged assault on Prakash during a meeting at the Chief Minister’s residence on Monday night.

Prakash has alleged that he was beaten up by Okhla MLA Amanatullah Khan and another MLA in the presence of Kejriwal.

The Delhi Police has arrested Khan and Deoli MLA Prakash Jarwal.

The Delhi BJP workers also staged protests at several places in the city demanding the dismissal of all the AAP MLAs including the disqualified MLAs.

Meanwhile, Delhi BJP spokesperson and son of the first Delhi Chief Minister Madanlal Khurana, Harish Khurana, along with party workers protested outside the AAP Moti Nagar MLA’s office.

Khurana told IANS: “We took out a bike rally in Moti Nagar constituency over the present administrative situation in the national capital.

“The way Kejriwal government is behaving, it is clear that the entire administration has been stalled.

“And if the top official of the Delhi government can be attacked inside the Chief Minister’s residence then one can imagine how much a common man is safe on the streets of Delhi,” he said.

He added that in the Moti Nagar constituency, the people do not get proper water or electricity. (IANS)
