Yogendra Yadav, Prashant Bhushan likely to be asked for clarification at national executive meet
Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leaders Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan are likely to be asked to put forth their clarifications in the party's national executive meeting which is to take place today, according to reports.
New Delhi: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leaders Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan are likely to be asked to put forth their clarifications in the party's national executive meeting which is to take place today, according to reports.
Earlier in the day, Yogendra Yadav had said he was hopeful the party's national executive meet would result in some 'good news'.
"The AAP has been able to stand because of the hopes of people. People from all over the country are sending us messages to stand united and I am sure that they won't be disappointed. I am sure the outcome of the meeting would be positive and we will give you some ' good news' by evening," Yadav had said in an exclusive interview with ANI.
The AAP is embroiled in an ugly internal strife barely a month after forming a majority government in national capital New Delhi.
There is unconfirmed speculation that the duo of Bhushan and Yadav may be eased out of the national executive, which is the AAP's top policy body.
The decision, if carried out, would mean that Bhushan and Yadav would cease to be decision makers in a party that is sure to expand its wings in the country once it cements its foundation in Delhi.
And if Bhushan and Yadav take their ouster from the PAC as a slight, they could exit from the Aam Aadmi Party.
There are reports of a majority of the national executive being in favour of the ouster of the duo, as they feel both have brought a bad name to the AAP by talking about the lack of so-called internal democracy in the party.
Meanwhile, the AAP has announced that National Convenor and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is unlikely to attend today's National Executive meeting, as he is flying to Bengaluru for naturopathy treatment for ten days to recover from diabetes and a consistent bout of cough.
In Kejriwal's absence, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia will officiate as chief minister.
