AAP leader Yogendra Yadav on Monday tweeted saying that he felt sad over false reports about him and Prashant Bhushan being unhappy with the party’s inner politics and said the need of the hour is to work for the country.
“I feel sad and at the same time laughing too after reading whatever is being said in the media about me and Prashant ji for the last two days,” he said virtually denying the unconfirmed media reports about his exit from the leadership role.
“Delhi has given such huge mandate to AAP. I would appeal that we should not let the faith of people dwindle in the AAP,” Yadav said in the tweet on Monday morning.
“Today it is the time to work for the country. The country has great expectation from us (AAP),” Yadav said.
The media was going berserk over the brewing discontent about the functioning of the Aam Aadmi Party, with senior leader Prashant Bhushan dashing off a letter raising questions about some decisions of party convenor Arvind Kejriwal who is now chief minister of Delhi.
In the letter, apparently written to members of party’s national executive, Bhushan has raised questions about the party running a “person-centric” campaign in Delhi polls and not following some of its professed principles.
Earlier, another AAP leader Sanjay Singh said that attempts were being made to remove Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal as the party’s national convenor.
“There are attempts being made to remove Arvind Kejriwal as the national convenor of the party,” Sanjay Singh told reporters at a media briefing here.
He said that party’s national executive would meet on March 4 to discuss the issue, following the reports of disagreements within the Aam Aadmi Party, which he said should be discussed internally and not publicly.
The party will not be able to function smoothly if senior members target Kejriwal and make efforts to defame the party, he added.
