Rakesh Agarwal, secretary of an NGO, which claims to work for benefits of autorickshaw drivers, said the auto drivers were upset over the alleged denial of party ticket for the December 4 Delhi Assembly elections.

Auto drivers are now displaying posters saying, "Kejriwal gave a ticket to auto driver Bhag Singh initially from Kalkaji, but later withdrew it. Why?"

Bhag Singh was a nominee for the Kalkaji Assembly seat, but according to AAP he withdrew his nomination as a candidate due to some personal reasons.

Agarwal said auto drivers were now coming forward to have the new anti-Kejriwal poster affixed on their autorickshaws.

"These posters would be affixed on 3,000 autorickshaws by Tuesday evening. We plan to put 20,000 posters in the next few days on as many autos highlighting the broken promises and misuse of Anna Hazare's name by the party,” Agarwal said.

Our intent is to expose Kejriwal's leadership deficit and persuade the party to set its house in order before embarking on an electoral battle," said Agarwal, who claimed to be an AAP member.

Meanwhile, when asked about the reason of denial of ticket, AAP leader Sanjay Singh said, "He had written a letter to the party convenor Kejriwal saying he would not be able to contest election due to some personal and social reasons, so he withdrew his nominations as a party candidate."

Agarwal had been attacking Kejriwal alleging him of running the party in a dictatorial style, with lack of internal democracy and lack of governance agenda in the party.
