New Delhi: The Aam Aadmi Party’s troubles appear to be far from over. Opening a new front against the party leadership, former party MLA Rajesh Garg, Moday, served a legal notice to Kumar Vishwas for calling him a black-mailer and an opportunist.

Garg stated that Vishwas's remarks has tarnished his image and has asked him for an unconditional apology within 15 days from the receipt of the legal notice.

If Vishwas fails to tender apology, then he will initiate suit for damages and file a criminal case, Garg said.

Vishwas had alleged Garg of blackmail him in return for a party ticket in the Delhi Assembly election.

Garg, who accused Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal of trying to poach six Congress MLAs to form government last year, had recorded the telephonic conversations. After the controversy broke out over the clip, Garg feigned ignorance on how it went public saying he had e-mailed it to party leader Kumar Vishwas.

"Mr failed conspirator Rajesh Garg Ji, I had forwarded the audio clip to the party on the same day you tried to blackmail me with the same

"That was when you tried to exchange a Vidhansabha ticket with this audio.. Remember? Denied a ticket, u r free to do whatever u wish, (sic)" Vishwas tweeted.

Garg, who represented the party from Rohini, was denied nomination in recent Assembly polls in Delhi.
