Intensifying the crisis, Aam Aadmi Party MLAs from Delhi on Wednesday wrote to Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and sought action against Yogendra Yadav, Prashant Bhushan.
The stand was taken after the party top brass on Tuesday openly accused Yadav and Bhushan of indulding in anti-party activities. They also accused Yadav and Bhushan of working for the party's defeat and maligning the image of Arvind Kejriwal.
The clarification came after the removal of Prashant Bhushan and Yogendra Yadav from Political Affairs Committee (PAC) on March 4.
In a joint statement made by Manish Sisodia, Gopal Rai, Pankaj Gupta and Sanjay Singh, AAP revealed that the decision was taken to end the internal crisis in the party.
They also maintained that initially no statement was made to prevent their image. However, both Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan failed to maintain standards, thus a clarification became necessary to prevent any further rift in AAP.
Accusing the three, AAP stated, “All members were trying hard to lead the party to victory in Delhi polls but Yogendra Yadav, Prashant and Shanti Bhushan were trying hard to malign our image.”
