New Delhi: Reeling under Lok Sabha polls debacle, the Aam Aadmi Party on Saturday held a National Executive Council meeting to discuss the issues related to the resignations submitted by the party`s top leaders recently.

Among other AAP leaders across the country, senior leaders Ashutosh and Sanjay Singh attended the party`s meet.

However, AAP`s leader Kumar Vishwas has skipped the meeting.

Meanwhile,as per reports, the issue of rift between senior leader Yogendra Yadav and party`s convenor Arvind Kejriwal were discussed in the meet.

Rift in the party`s top leadership emerged after exchange of letters between Yogendra Yadav and Manish Sisodia.

Yadav, known to be a key strategist, had written to the Political Affairs Committee after his resignation from it charging the party with "falling prey to personality cult" and that the decisions taken reflected the wishes of the party chief. He described Kejriwal as a supremo.

Interestingly, senior party leader and Kejriwal`s close aide Manish Sisodia hit back at Yadav accusing him of targeting Kejriwal and making internal matters public.

Moreover, there are also reports that another AAP leader Anjali Damania may be sent to convince former leader Shazia Ilmi to rejoin AAP.
"There is no rift in the party. There are bound to be problems and those will be discussed to find a correct solution," said party leader and senior advocate Prashant Bhushan.
