AAP Finds a New Spearhead to Take on Modi Govt as Kejriwal Takes a Back Seat

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has a new voice these days. And it is not that of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, but of his deputy, Manish Sisodia. With Kejriwal increasingly maintaining a low profile, his education minister has taken on the task of voicing the Delhi government’s grievances and spearheading the battle against the Centre.

He has been particularly active over the last one week. From calling the Lt Governor a dictator and accusing him of running a parallel government to writing a three-page letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the removal of Delhi government’s advisors, he has taken over from his mentor the job of attacking the Centre.
