‘Letter leaks are a worry for AAP’

Senior Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Sanjay Singh said that attempts are being made to remove Arvind Kejriwal as AAP’s national Convener. The party will discuss the leakage of letters during the national executive meet on Wednesday. Singh said it is disappointing and worrisome that party’s internal communications, letters are being leaked and it is a matter of grave concern.

At a press conference, Singh also targeted party patron Shanti Bhushan for his comment in an interview that Kejriwal should be replaced by Yogendra Yadav. “Someone from within the party, certain senior leaders are trying to remove Arvind Kejriwal from the post of national Convener, by targeting him and maligning the party,” Singh told the media.

Without naming Bhushan and Yadav, he referred to statements and letters by senior leaders which amounted to making the party a butt of ridicule and a “joke of us”.

Expressing displeasure over the leaking of letters to the media, the Political Affairs Committee (PAC) member, said the issues could be discussed in the party forum rather than bringing them before the public through the media.

The leader further added that during its national executive meeting held last week, Kejriwal had tendered his resignation and it was opposed by members who had insisted that he should continue as the AAP national Convener.

“It was decided at the meet last week that Kejriwal will continue as the party chief and there
is no question of removing him from the post. If this is the case, then how will the party work?”
Meanwhile, a letter from Delhi state secretary of the party Dilip Pandey was seen as an attempt to counter Bhushan and Yadav. He lodged a complaint to the party forum regarding anti-party activities of Yogendra Yadav, Prashant Bhushan and Shanti Bhushan in his letter.

“...During a meeting of National Policy Committee in the month of July, in which party member Ashish Khetan was also present, Shanti Bhushan tried to draft Khetan into their conspiracy...” said Pandey in his letter.
