Bhushan seeks ‘one-on-one’ with CM to end acrimony

Bhushan seeks ‘one-on-one’ with CM to end acrimony
Senior Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Prashant Bhushan on Monday hinted upon an indication that might be a mark of dousing heat between him and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. Bhushan said that he has sent Kejriwal a text, hoping for his speedy recovery and suggested a meeting upon his return to Delhi, to sort out the matter.

Meanwhile, Kejriwal has returned from Bengaluru after going through treatment at the Jindal Nature Cure Institute for 12 days.

“I want to meet Arvind and end the controversy. I want to talk to him one-on-one when he reaches Delhi,” said Prashant Bhushan. “I sent him a text hoping he is well and suggested a meeting once he is back. If he (Kejriwal) wants, I can meet him with Yogendraji, to sort out the problems to whatever extent possible,” he added.

The top brass of the Aam Aadmi Party has officially accused Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan of anti-party activities. The duo, however, in a joint statement refuted the allegations, while listing out reasons for their differences. Even as the talks of Yadav and Bhushan being expelled from the party gained clamour, the duo, in a joint letter to volunteers, however, had hoped to work towards the unity of the party, saying the organisation was much bigger than any individual. The rift, according to the two, actually started when Kejriwal allegedly proposed the idea of forming a government again in Delhi with Congress’ support.

“Kejriwal was adamant on government formation. We opposed this and insisted that it would send across a very wrong signal among volunteers nationwide, as the Congress was recently rejected by Delhi voters completely. However, Kejriwal went ahead and continued till a month prior to elections,” the letter reads.

The letter offers a point-by-point clarification to all the issues raised against them by the AAP leaders, including Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, Sanjay Singh and Gopal Rai.
