Aam Admi Party unofficial  reports ticket distribution in the MCD polls is the reason behind Rishi’s outburst.AAP’s Janakpuri MLA Rajesh Rishi quoted couplets saying a regime nears its end if one relies on sycophants and tagged Kejriwal. Rishi later deleted the tweets. as per media reports.The party tried to control the damage, claiming that everything is fine between the leadership and the MLA. Despite repeated attempts, the Jankapuri MLA could not be contacted. His office said, Rishi has been away since morning.
AAP’s Bawana MLA had quit the party early this week, launching on attack on the Delhi government. He was also learnt to have been upset with the party over ticket distribution. AAP has 65 MLAs in the 70-member Assembly. Rishi was in news after his brother was arrested for assaulting a women last month. Interestingly, the party had fielded Rishi, along with other Poorvanchali MLAs, to take on Delhi BJP President Manoj Tiwari when note ban was announced.
Few days after Bawana MLA Ved Parkash quit the AAP, another party legislator aired his dissatisfaction today, cautioning Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal against “sycophants”.
Delhi ruling outfit AAP is embarrassed with its  preparations to contest its first civic polls in Delhi on April 23 after the disappointing performance in Punjab and Goa.
Another controversy around AAP ,Delhi Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal has directed chief secretary M M Kutty to recover 97 crore rupees from Aam Aadmi Party (AAP). The money was allegedly used by the AAP government on advertisements which is in violations of the Supreme Court guidelines.
Mr. Baijal also ordered an inquiry into the spendings on advertisements projecting Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and his party and asked the chief secretary to fix responsibility. The AAP will have to reimburse the money within a month.
In a report earlier this month, the Comptroller and Auditor General had also found that the AAP government spent 29 crore rupees in releasing advertisements outside Delhi which was beyond its responsibility.
In 2015, the Supreme Court said that government ads cannot feature Chief Ministers or other political leaders. It exempted photos the Prime Minister, President and Chief Justice of India from its ban. Last year, the court relaxed its rules to permit photos of union ministers and Chief Ministers.
