Kejriwal lacks organisation skills, says Shanti Bhushan
Moneylife Digital Team 13 August 2014

According to Shanti Bhushan, AAP founder Arvind Kejriwal lacks the ability to manage party affairs at the national level and under his leadership, the party failed to expand across India


Shanti Bhushan, senior leader and founder member of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Wednesday criticised his party chief saying that Arvind Kejriwal lacks 'organisational skills' in party affairs and under his leadership AAP has failed to expand across the country.


Speaking to a news channel, Bhushan questioned Kejriwal's organisational skills, saying that there is no internal democracy in the party. "He is great leader, a great campaigner but in my opinion he lacks the ability to organize party affairs," Shanti Bhushan said adding, "AAP under him has failed to expand across India".


However, Shanti Bhushan's son and noted lawyer Prashant Bhushan has distanced himself from his father's statement. "Whatever Shanti Bhushanji has said are his personal views. It would have been better if he had expressed his views in the party forum," Prashant Bhushan told reporters.


Shanti Bhushan is considered a mentor within the AAP and has been associated with Kejriwal ever since the formation of the party.


Sparking open differences within the party, Bhushan advised Kejriwal to consult other leaders on important issues and to assign organisational work to some one else who has the time. However, despite ridiculing Kejriwal's organisational skills, Bhushan asserted that he is the right person to be the face of AAP and should remain the main campaigner.

I agree with Mr. Shanti Bhushan .
AAP needs lot of people with specialized skil.

Arvind Kejriwal is tasked with too many functions and Now AAP party is expanding day by day .

Arvind should focus on his constituency New Delhi and AAP Delhi .

Example- Asad Omar - Ex CEO of Enrgro corporation and Joined Imran Khan led political party Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf on April 2012.
He and other senior politicians helped PTI expand beyond Islamabad and Lahore to Rural areas.
Result - PTI has majority govt. in Khyber Pakhtunwa with Very good governance .
Pervez Khattak is CM of KP area not Imran Khan .

I live in Delhi and has seen AAP party struggle to Utopian 49 days in power.
