New Delhi, March 4:As AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal decides to stay out of an important meeting where the fate of the founder members-Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan may be decided, rumors of the duo being axed is somewhat confirmed.
Yogendra Yadav, Prashant Bhushan who are said to have been violating the party protocol have been openly critical about the party's functioning and the leader. Meanwhile, Yadav said in his interview with NDTV,"If I have done something wrong, then disciplinary action should be taken," Mr Yadav told NDTV, adding, however, that he had faith that there would be "good news" by evening."
AAP leader Navin Jaihind said he would be proposing their removal and justified,"They have been involved in anti-party activities and are trying to divide the party everywhere. Mr Kejriwal has been lenient. Anyone else would have been sacked long back."
Mr Kejriwal, seemingly disturbed with the entire situation said that he is extremely disappointed. "I refuse to be drawn in this ugly battle," he said.
The leader is said to fly to Bengaluru for a treatment in Naturopathy for high blood sugar and cough. Bhushan had earlier alleged that there was a serious breakdown of communication between Kejriwal and himself and that the party is heading toward a one-man show. He also accused Kejriwal of "compromising with the party's core ideology for the sake of electoral politics.
On the contrary, AAP members allege that Bhushan and Yadav were conspiring to remove the AAP chief. In fact, Bhushan is alleged to have a "vice-like grip", say AAP leaders.
