Aam Admi Party (AAP) is “doing alright”, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said today after the weekend saw bitter infighting and a crackdown on dissidents who had challenged his leadership.
In his first interaction with media after the charged National Council meeting where party rebels Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan were removed from the National Executive, Kejriwal responded to a question on the upheaval in the party saying, “party theek thaak hai (the party is doing alright).”
The party has also sacked Bhushan as the head of the National Disciplinary Committee and replaced it with a three-member panel. The members are known to be AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal’s loyalists.
The party also discontinued services of its internal Lokpal Admiral Ramdas yesterday after he was critical of party leadership. He has been replaced by a three-member Lokpal panel comprising two former IPS officers and one educationist.
