Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Prashant Bhushan on Monday expressed his desire to meet Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal at the earliest so that all the problems can be sorted out. “I have sent a message to Arvind [Kejriwal] saying that I hope he is better now after his stay at Jindal Institute of Naturopathy. And that I would like to meet him as soon as possible either alone by myself or with Yogendraji so that we can sit together and try and sort out all these problems that have arisen. All the volunteers want that these problems should be sorted out to the extent that it is possible,” he told ANI. The AAP national executive had earlier on March 4 decided to remove Bhushan and Yadav along with the plans of reconstituting the PAC. According to reports, eight members of the PAC voted in favour of the duo, while 11 members voted against them.However, on March 11, Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan, rebutted the allegations of anti-party activities levelled against them by the party’s top brass and raised questions about the ‘unilateral decisions’ by AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal.The duo, in a joint letter to volunteers, however, hoped to work for party unity in future as it was an “opportunity to strengthen” AAP, saying the organisation was much bigger than any individual.Alleging that the rift between Kejriwal and them started after the Lok Sabha polls when the AAP chief mooted forming a government again in Delhi with the support of Congress which they opposed.”Kejriwal was adamant on formation of government. We opposed this and insisted that it would send a very wrong signal among the volunteers across the country, as Congress has recently been rejected by Delhi voters completely.However, Kejriwal went ahead with his efforts on formation of government and he continued till a month prior to elections,” read the letter.The leaders also rejected the allegation that they were releasing some very confidential communications, saying if they wanted they could have made public some secret papers which would have really harmed the party.However, the leaders had wished speedy recovery for Kejriwal”We hope that Arvind Kejriwal would come back in Delhi soon and sort out the things in a way that party’s unity and soul be working together… We would continue to work for the betterment of the party,” the letter added.(With agency inputs)
