The AAP leader says he and fellow leader Prashant Bhushan were fighting to "save the soul of the struggle" that gave birth to the party
In further escalation of infighting, AAP leaders Prashant Bhushan and Yogendra Yadav on Friday mounted an attack on party convenor Arvind Kejriwal, accusing him of stifling internal democracy and adopting unfair means to capture power.
Addressing a press conference in New Delhi, the two leaders alleged that any issue raised by them was being projected as questioning Mr. Kejriwal’s leadership and attempts to remove him from the post of AAP’s national convenor.
Mr. Bhushan even claimed that Mr. Kejriwal had suggested that he will form a regional party with all party MLAs saying “he cannot work with us“.
The attack on Mr. Kejriwal by the two founding members of the party came a day before the crucial meeting of the AAP’s national council which is likely to deliberate on the fate of Mr. Bhushan and Mr. Yadav and other major issues.
Mr. Yadav said Mr. Bhushan and he were fighting to “save the soul of the struggle” that gave birth to the party.
Mr. Yadav said: “It (the AAP) is not an ordinary party, it was born out of a revolution to clean the system, end corruption and give power to the common people. People have high hopes from this party.”
