The rift within the Aam Aadmi Party is turning out to be a free-for-all with party spokesperson Kumar Vishwas slamming Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan. "If a party with zero seats in Delhi is laughing at your expense, then there is seriously something wrong within the party. This is really sad for the thousands of volunteered for the party to get those historic numbers in the Capital. I want to apologise on their behalf," he told. Vishwas was hopeful, "I believe that AAP will further strengthen after the National Council meeting."
Yogendra Yadav had hit back at the party leadership, accusing it of forcing Delhi MLAs to sign papers against him and Prashant Bhushan and said the country will come to know the "whole truth" very soon and he challenged the party leadership to make their response to the allegations public. Earlier, Manish Sisodia, Gopal Rai, Pankaj Gupta and Sanjay Singh said, Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan along with Shanti Bhushan worked for the party's defeat and maligned the image of Arvind Kejriwal.
"They should not put pressure on members to speak out against us or force Delhi MLAs to sign papers against us.” "Hope this statement ends all slander, planting of allegations. Hope no more coercion of party functionaries and Delhi MLAs on this issue. Hope Prashant Bhushan and my response will also be duly publicised by the party media. Hope party's website will be opened for all volunteers' responses," Yogendra Yadav said.
"I think, the time has now come for the country to know the whole truth about this matter. Very soon, they will know the whole truth. It is good that those things that were being said through other people with the kind of innuendos and allegations that were being made are now being made by frontline leaders of the party," Prashant Bhushan said.
