Pro-Kejriwal camp wants action against Bhushan

The pro-Arvind Kejriwal Delhi unit took on its “rival” camp led by Prashant Bhushan and Yogendra Yadav, saying those who want to oust him as the national convenor must face disciplinary action.

The Kejriwal team, which  took credit for party’s landslide victory in Delhi, also accused the duo of conspiring for AAP’s defeat.  Launching an offensive against the two senior leaders, the party’s Delhi state unit secretary Dilip Pandey has demanded disciplinary action against them. He also accused them of helping the AAP Volunteers Action Manch (AVAM), a rebel faction of the AAP, which tried to embarrass the party in the run-up to the Delhi elections.
AVAM had alleged that the AAP had accepted dubious donations from hawala sources, an allegation that was promptly denied by the party.

AAP Delhi state co-convenor Durgesh Pathak said the two senior AAP leaders wanted  the party to lose in the Delhi polls so that they could remove Kejriwal as the national convenor.  Without denying charges levelled by Pathak, member of the Political Affairs Committee Sanjay Singh said the party will discuss the leakage of letters during the national executive meet on Wednesday and those responsible for the leak will face disciplinary action.

His statement comes amid reports that both Yadav and Bhushan will be removed from AAP’s highest decision making body. Earlier, the two AAP leaders – sidelined by the party’s electioneering team – in a note to the members of the party’s national executive had raised questions about the party running a “person-centric” campaign in Delhi.

On the rift within the party, AAP Delhi state convenor Ashutosh said it is a clash between “ultra left, pragmatic politics”. “There is a decisive churn in the Aam Aadmi Party,” he added.
