New Delhi: Crusader Anna Hazare, who had led the India Against Corruption movement which is said to be the origin of Aam Aadmi Party, on Saturday refused to make any statement on the ongoing fissures in the party.
On being asked about his reaction on dissent in AAP, Hazare told ANI that it's beyond his understanding.
“This is AAP's internal matter, why would I get into it? It's beyond my understanding,” he was quoted as saying by ANI.
Amid chaos and high drama, dissident AAP founding members Prashant Bhushan and Yogendra Yadav were on Saturday removed from its National Executive for anti-party activities.
A resolution to remove the two dissident leaders along with their supporters Anand Kumar and Ajit Jha from the powerful panel was passed at the National Council with 247 members supporting it.
10 members opposed it while 54 others did not take part in the voting, AAP National Secretary Pankaj Gupta said.
After the meeting, Yadav and Bhushan accused Kejriwal of using unfair means including bringing goons at the meeting who allegedly beat up a number of National Council members opposed to the resolution.
