Kejriwal wants Yadav, Bhushan out of National Executive

New Delhi, March 26: The AAP has called for a key meeting of its Political Affairs Committee tonight amid reports that Delhi Chief Minister and Party convener Arvind Kejriwal wants Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan to leave the National Executive.

Reconciliation talks between the two warring factions in AAP appeared to have been collapsed on Wednesday with Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal insisting on Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan quitting the National Executive ahead of the crucial National Council meeting on March 28.

Yadav and Bhushan reportedly made it clear that there was no valid ground for them to step down from the 21-member National Executive and the rival camp should instead address the issues raised by them. Yadav and Bhushan have been pressing for resolution of key issues like implementation of critical matters such as volunteer participation in AAP's decision making, autonomy to its state units, bringing the party under the ambit of RTI and appointment of Lokayukta at the state level.
