New Delhi, Mar 3: With the party facing escalated internecine conflict, AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal today said he was "hurt and pained" by what was going on within the outfit, terming it as an "ugly battle" which has "betrayed" the trust imposed by the people.
Delhi Chief Minister Kejriwal, who is the party's national convener, refused to be drawn into the "ugly battle", saying he will concentrate on Delhi's governance.
"Deeply hurt and pained by what is going on in the party; this is betrayal of trust that Delhi posed in us," Kejriwal said in a tweet. "I refuse to be drawn into this ugly battle. Will concentrate on Delhi's governance. Will not let peoples trust break under any circumstances," he further said.
Sharp differences have come to the fore within AAP with allegations that senior AAP leaders Prashant Bhushan and Yogendra Yadav were trying to "remove" Kejriwal from the post of party convener. AAP has convened a meeting of its national executive tomorrow to decide on all issues, including the latest controversy over differences in the party.
