New Delhi | The AAP brass is tonight likely to decide on the fate of dissident leaders Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan in the party with its chief Arvind Kejriwal insisting that the duo resign from its National Executive. Sources said that a decision on the future of the two leaders would be taken at the meeting.
Kejriwal is learnt to have conveyed to the AAP leaders that it would not be possible for him to work with the duo, who were earlier this month ousted from the PAC as the party was caught in the middle of a row over differences within its leadership. Interestingly, this will be the second consecutive PAC meeting in two days.
After yesterday’s meeting, Sanjay Singh, a key aide of Kejriwal, had said that the talks are on and the party was hopeful of reaching a conclusion. Yadav and Bhushan have 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, sources had said yesterday.
A Kejriwal aide said that the AAP chief remained firm that the two should quit the National Executive before Saturday’s National Council meeting.
