Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday alleged that the India against Corruption movement and the formation of the Aam Admi Party (AAP) was part of a scheme to bring down the UPA government in 2014 after AAP’s founding member Prashant Bhushan said the same.

Bhushan has said that to a large extent the movement was supported by the BJP-RSS and AAP was propped up with the intention to topple the UPA government. He also added that while he had this realization late, Arvind Kejriwal was in on this move. “I understood it too late by which we have created another Frankenstein monster,” he said. Bhushan was expelled from the party in 2015 for ‘anti-party activities’.

Gandhi tweeted a report of this claim and said that ‘what was known to us has been confirmed by a founding AAP member.’ The movement, led by Anna Hazare later lost its appeal with internal conflicts amongst the leaders.
