New Delhi: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Ashutosh on Friday said the possibility of a truce with dissident leaders Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan was "remote".

"To be honest and frank, the possibility of truce or peace is remote because they (Bhushan and Yadav) are insisting on removal of Kejriwal (as national convener) which is not possible," Ashutosh told a news channel.

"If you are part of a party, you have to accept its leader," he added.

Less than two months after it stormed to power in Delhi, the AAP on Thursday that Bhushan and Yadav had quit as its national executive. The duo fervently denied it.

AAP spokesman Ashish Khetan said the two leaders were dead set against Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, the party's best known face, who assumed office on February 14.
