AAP's expelled leaders Yogendra Yadav (Photo: PTI) New Delhi: Launching an offensive against the Aam Aadmi Party over a recent advertisement, Swaraj Abhiyan leader Yogendra Yadav on Monday accused the city government of indulging in "political corruption." Mr Yadav said the AAP government was using public money in glorifying one person despite the restrictions imposed by the Supreme Court against such ads. “This is a form of political corruption as it is using public money for the advertisements. The AAP had come to power by promising new type of politics. But by coming up with such an advertisement, it is getting into the league of Mayawati and Jayalalitha,” the former AAP leader, who was expelled from the party after he upped ante against chief minister Arvind Kejriwal, said. Last week, another Swaraj Abhiyan leader and activist lawyer Prashant Bhushan in a series of tweets said the ad amounted to a “crass” projection of chief minister Arvind Kejriwal apart from being “crude abuse” of funds, which was “against a Supreme Court order.” “Apart from being a crass and crude abuse of funds the Kejriwal ad on TV is sexist and projects women as servants of their husbands. Shocking,” Bhushan, a senior Supreme Court lawyer had tweeted. Decrying “personality cult” as an anti-thesis of democracy, the Supreme Court has barred publication of photos of leaders in government advertisements except those of the President, Prime Minister and the Chief Justice of India. “The guideline of the order clearly states that any government advertisement should avoid the glorification of political personalities and and such glorification of an individual at the cost of public exchequer be stopped in a Delhi,” the group said in a statement.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in Uttar Pradesh remains headless, rudderless and directionless but that has not prevented party workers from squabbling in public. AAP spokesperson in Lucknow Badri Narain was unceremoniously removed from his post by district secretary Vishal Vikram Singh last week. A curt email sent to mediapersons informed that Mr Narain had too many responsibilities on his frail shoulders and was therefore being divested of his responsibility as a spokesperson. The email further asked journalists not to take cognisance of any mail sent form Mr Badri Narain’s email ID. Mr Narain responded to the “decision” saying that it was “arbitrary and unconstitutional” and blamed a section in the district unit for working against the party interest. Mr Narain further disclosed that he had been removed from the post because he had dared to demand the accounts of the party’s unit and refused to accept the decision of his removal. As of now Mr Narain continues to function as the party spokesman and media-in-charge while Arvind Misra, the “new” spokesperson also sends out press releases.

India Votes News and analysis on the world’s largest election. NEW DELHI — In many ways, Soni Sori, a tribal rights activist from Chhattisgarh, is a natural fit with the Aam Aadmi Party, which recently named her as one of its three candidates for Parliament in the central Indian state. The 39-year-old is a crusader for tribal rights, rallying against a police force she has accused of torture and corruption, and her ideology fits with the populist manifesto of the Aam Aadmi Party, which translates as the Common Man Party. And as a woman contesting from a rural seat far from Delhi, she represents demographics the party needs if it is to be considered a national one. “We want women, we want...
