AAP row: Bhushan, Yadav seek meeting with Kejriwal

New Delhi, PTI | Updated : 16 March 2015, 10:17 PM

In signs of rapprochement between the two warring camps within AAP, senior leader Prashant Bhushan today said he wanted to meet Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal to put an end to the row which has seen him and Yogendra Yadav being ousted from the party’s political affairs committee.

Bhushan said he has sought time with Kejriwal and, if he agrees, can meet him along with Yadav.

“I have sent a message to Arvind saying hope he is feeling better after his stay at the Jindal Institute of Naturopathy (in Bangalore). I have said that I would like to meet him as soon as possible so that we can sit together and try to sort out all these problems that have arisen.

“If he wants, I can meet him with Yogendra ji (Yadav), to sort out the problems to whatever extent possible,” Bhushan said.

Sources close to Yadav said that the message was sent in the morning on behalf of both the leaders.

Bhushan’s statement follows an episode of mudslinging by both camps. Bhushan, along with Yadav, was voted out of the party’s all-powerful PAC on March 4. The ouster of the two leaders had also pushed the party to the edge with disagreements arising among its supporters.
