Expressing hope that chief minister Arvind Kejriwal’s return will lead to the “meeting of hearts and minds” and that the deep rift in AAP will be bridged, Aam Aadmi Party national executive member Anand Kumar said that it was time to disappoint all those who were waiting for a further drift between senior party leaders.
In a series of tweets, Kumar said that the “rupture” caused by the national executive’s decision to oust senior leaders Prashant Bhushan and Yogendra Yadav can be made up for.
“We can make up for the rupture caused by the vote of 4th March regarding PAC (political affairs committee) which was avoidable as there was another resolution asking for voluntary withdrawal by all to make way for reconstitution of PAC,” he wrote on the micro blogging website.
Kejriwal returned to Delhi on Monday after a 12-day naturopathy session in Bangalore to control his diabetes and cure his cough. He left Delhi on March 5, a day after Yadav and Bhushan were voted out of the PAC by the national executive.
A number of Delhi leaders have spoken out against both and have said that they wanted the party to lose the Delhi elections and to oust Kejriwal from the post of the national convener.
Commenting on a statement by Prashant Bhushan to the media that he was ready to have a one-on-one meeting with Kejriwal, Kumar tweeted: “The message of Prashant ji for a meeting with Shri Arvind is a silver lining for all AAP volunteers and well wishers.”
