Will meet soon, replies Kejriwal to Prashant Bhushan

New Delhi, Mar 17: A day after Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan extended an olive branch to Arvind Kejriwal by seeking a meeting, the AAP chief on Tuesday responded, saying "will meet soon".

An SMS was sent to Kejriwal on Monday morning on behalf of both the leaders.

In another sign of reconciliation between the two warring factions, senior leaders from the Kejriwal camp met Yadav late last night and held discussions over several contentious issues, hours after the Delhi Chief Minister's return from Bengaluru.

Both the camps have termed the discussions as "positive". Party sources said AAP leaders Sanjay Singh and Kumar Vishwas, Ashutosh and Ashish Khetan met Yadav late last night and the discussions continued until 3 AM.

"We were bothered with what was happening in the party for the past few days. We started talks with Yogendra (Yadav) bhai. The start was good," Sanjay Singh tweeted.

Sources close to Yadav too echoed similar sentiments. "There is peace after a three-hour sleep. There is peace now. We will be successful," party leader Kumar Vishwas tweeted this morning.

Over the past few weeks, the AAP had been embroiled in internal turmoil with leaders from both the camps making accusations and levelling allegations against each other.

The Kejriwal camp had alleged that Bhushan and Yadav wanted the party to lose the Delhi Assembly elections and were attempting to remove the Delhi Chief Minister from the post of AAP National Convener.

The duo was dropped from the all-power Political Affairs Committee of the party at a meeting earlier this month.

Kejriwal flew back to Delhi last night after 12 days of naturopathy treatment in Bengaluru for chronic cough and diabetes.
