The talk that Kumar Vishwas may jump ship from Aam Aadmi Party to the BJP, has surfaced again. This time from within Delhi's ruling party. Senior party leader Amanatullah Khan, who is also a member of AAP's core Political Affairs Committee or PAC, has accused Mr Vishwas of conspiring to take over the party's top post.
