Earlier in the day, some reports came that AAP chief and Delhi CM Arvind Kejrwal tried to resign from the post of Aam Aadmi Party national Convener. But this decision was dependent on the meeting which was scheduled to be held today.
Many member of the NEC were against this decision of Kejriwal, thus they opposed him. As a result, Arvind Kejriwal’s resignation offer letter was rejected. In this meeting, several important decisions were made.
Some of those decisions are mentioned here. The senior leaders of AAP – Prashant Bhushan and Yogendra Yadav has been voted out from the Political Affairs Committee of Aam Aadmi Party. This is supposed to be happened as a result of various collisions or AAP rift happening from the last several days. Reports were started coming regarding the same in the last week only that his position will be changed.
Arvind Kejriwal’s Resignation Rejected as National Convener of AAP
Earlier, Kejriwal stated he was deeply hurt due to the open rift going on within the party. He stated this is the open betrayal of the trust of Delhi people.
The supporters and followers of Arvind Kejriwal voted against both of them in the 21 member National Executive (NE) meeting held today only. Both of them received only 8 votes whereas 11 were against them. The two remaining votes were of Kejriwal and Mayank Gandhi. They were not present at that time at the meet.
The AAP rift started to came into play when the duo – Yadav and Bhushan started questioning / raising red flag against the decisions / continuation of Kejriwal as the national convener of the party. They started neglecting and rejecting the working behaviour / style of the current chief. They evoked strong rejection / reaction at his working way.
Thus, after the voting results came and decision was made, those two leaders left the meeting session. Yadav still stressed on working with the party as he already did with dedication. While on the other hand, Bhushan just said that the decision of majority will be applied and then he left.
Sometime ago, Arvind Kejriwal proposed his resignation from the AAP’s chief position. As he believed that he won’t be able to carry out the responsibilities of both CM and party convener properly. But his resignation was rejected by the NE.
When the meeting session was over, Kumar Vishwas who is one of the senior leader in AAP said that there is no personal difference which will result in split in the party. There will be no place for personal decisions and opinions for the unity of the party.
Early in the day, Ashish Khetan also tweeted that he should not have commented wrongly about Bhushan. He said that they have previously worked hard and will continue to do that.
However, whatever maybe the leaders of the party say but it is clear that some ugly strife is going on in within the only month ruling party in Delhi.
It is also noted that Kejriwal is suffering from diabetes, so he will be admitted in Bengaluru institute. This institution is made with lots of lush greenery which will be helpful in tackling him against the disease with any help of any drug.
So, during his absense the senior leader of AAP Manish Sisodia will be the deputy Chief Minister of Delhi until he returns.
