The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) nominee for Dakshina Kannada Lok Sabha constituency M.R. Vasudeva said here on Tuesday that some persons are hatching a conspiracy to create a rift in the party by projecting him as anti-farmer and anti-Dalit.

The former director of Mangalore International Airport he said that reports in a section of the press had questioned his role in rehabilitation of farmers and Dalits while developing the airport in the recent years.

But all the rehabilitation cases for developing the airport were handled by the State government and not by the Airports Authority of India (AAI).
