  • Arvind Kejriwal may be removed from top Aam Aadmi Party post? Yogendra Yadav, Prashant Bhushan in row

    Serious differences appeared to have cropped up in Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), including over Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s role in the party, with the internal Lokpal pointing to two camps emerging within top leadership and asking the party to consider ‘one-man, one-post’ arrangement. Barely weeks after AAP convenor and Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal stormed to power, the letter by Admiral Ramdas, a former Navy chief and party’s internal Lokpal, sent to the Political Advisory Committee before the national executive meeting last week, recommended that any criticism on inner-party democracy needed to be dealt with by an independent group which carries out an internal audit. Ramdas emphasised on more clarity on whether Kejriwal can handle dual posts of Delhi chief minister and National Convenor.
