Five months af­ter the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) sus­pended its Okhla MLA, Amanat­ul­lah Khan, for call­ing se­nior party leader Ku­mar Vish­was a BJP agent, the party has re­voked the de­ci­sion, leav­ing Vish­was in­censed.

Ac­cord­ing to Khan, he was in­formed about the de­ci­sion by party leader Ashutosh on Sun­day. “I re­ceived a call from Ashutosh, who in­formed me that my sus­pen­sion has been re­voked. It’s a wel­come de­ci­sion. Now, I’ll be able to give un­di­vided at­ten­tion to my du­ties,” Khan said.

On be­ing asked whether he still stood by his state­ment against Vish­was, who is now head­ing the party’s Ra­jasthan unit, Khan said: “We should for­get what hap­pened in the past and work to­gether for the pros­per­ity of the party. All of us are work­ing for the same goal and Ku­mar Vish­was is work­ing hard for the party in Ra­jasthan.” He added that he didn’t wish to get into any other po­lit­i­cal con­tro­versy.

Mean­while, in a state­ment to the me­dia, Vish­was said he was not wor­ried about the Ra­jya Sabha ticket or Amanat­ul­lah, ad­ding that he has found him­self alone within the party in con­nec­tion to many na­tional is­sues.
