AAP's internal Lokpal asked not to attend National Council meet: Yogendra Yadav
Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Yogendra Yadav on Saturday alleged that the party`s internal Lokpal, Admiral Ramdas, has been asked not to attend the party`s ongoing National Council meet in the national capital.
New Delhi: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Yogendra Yadav on Saturday alleged that the party`s internal Lokpal, Admiral Ramdas, has been asked not to attend the party`s ongoing National Council meet in the national capital.
"In the morning I received a letter from Admiral Ramdas informing that he has been asked to not attend the meeting. He had said that the party`s general secretary has stopped him from coming to the meeting. He is very sad for this," Yadav said.
"The party had called him in every meeting and he had specially come for the meeting. The way all the MLAs are called for the meeting, Lokpal can also be called," he added.
The AAP national council meeting today is set to take a decision on removing senior leaders Prashant Bhushan and Yogendra Yadav from the party`s national executive.
The internal rift within the party had widened after the founding members of the party - Yadav and Bhushan - were accused of working for the party`s defeat during the Delhi Assembly polls last month.
Members supporting Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal have accused them of anti-party activities while Yadav and Bhushan have alleged that the internal democracy of the party had been lost.
The party has also been rocked by a sting featuring an alleged telephonic conversation between Kejriwal and AAP leader Umesh Singh.
In their discussion, Kejriwal reportedly used strong language against Yadav and Bhushan and threatened to quit the AAP to launch a new party.
