The AAP’s National Executive on Wednesday decided not to have Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhusan in the party’s key Political Affairs Committee, days after they questioned the functioning of party chief Arvind Kejriwal.
After coming out of the PAC meeting while addressing the reporters Prashant Bhusan said that We are no more the part of the political affairs of the party.
“Apart from not being in the PAC he will also not be the party spokesperson anymore,” a party source said. Asked whether the National Executive has taken a decision on Kejriwal’s resignation, another party leader said, “no”.
According to sources, Yadav came under attack in the meeting for allegedly leaking information to a reporter which was later used in a column.
“A section of the party leaders attacked Yadav accusing him of leaking information for an article that was published in a national daily,” a source said.
Before the meeting, Yadav sounded a reconciliatory tone terming the crisis as an “opportunity” adding that he will not quit.
“The crisis that you are talking about is an opportunity for us (AAP). Everything will be clear by this evening,” he told reporters on reaching the venue of the meeting.
