AAP propped by RSS-BJP to bring down UPA government: Rahul Gandhi

New Delhi: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday alleged that India Against Corruption movement and the Aam Aadmi Party were propped by the RSS-BJP to subvert democracy and bring down the UPA government.

Gandhi cited AAP founder member and civil rights lawyer Prashant Bhushan’s reported claim that the movement was to a large extent supported and propped by the BJP-RSS to bring down the Congress government and get themselves in power.

“What was known to us has been confirmed by a founding AAP member,” the former Congress chief tweeted, tagging a media report on Bhushan’s remarks.

“The IAC movement and AAP were propped up by the RSS/BJP to subvert democracy and bring down the UPA government,” Gandhi, who is accompanying his mother Sonia Gandhi to the US for her medical check-up, said.

Bhushan was part of the India Against Corruption movement which was the precursor to AAP led by Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

In 2015, Bhushan along with Yogendra Yadav was expelled from AAP over alleged “anti-party activities”.

The India Against Corruption movement was particularly prominent during the anti-graft protests of 2011 and 2012, concerned with the introduction of the Jan Lokpal bill.
