All stories about AAP crisis imaginary: Yogendra Yadav

AAP member Yogendra Yadav  

Amid the ongoing rumbling within the AAP, senior party leader Yogendra Yadav on Monday said all the stories on the crisis in the party are “imaginary” and it was time to work after the big victory in the polls and not indulge in “small acts." He said the people of Delhi have given the party a massive mandate and one should not indulge in these small acts.

"For the past few days, I have been hearing things about me and Prashant ji (Bhushan). New stories are being planted and allegations are being leveled against (us) and conspiracies are being hatched. I am saddened, but also find it funny. I find it funny because these are baseless. Those scripting stories have a lot of time but I feel sad with the intention. The government of Delhi has given us our biggest victory. The time is to work after the big victory. The country has a lot of expectations from us. I can expect that from our small acts, we should not let this ray of hope become small,” Mr. Yadav said in a Facebook post.

The AAP is undergoing an internal crisis with Mr. Bhushan raising the issue of “one-person centric approach” in the party. Some seven months back Mr. Yadav had criticised Kejriwal of falling prey to “personality cult." " person-centric campaign, which was run during Delhi elections, is making our party look more and more like other conventional parties that are also one-person centric. The only difference being that we still claim that we are wedded to the principles of ‘swaraj’ while they don’t. Running one person—centric campaign may be effective, but does that justify sacrificing our principles? We will need to make a conscious course correction if we have to get away from a supremo controlled party,” Mr. Bhushan said in a letter to members of AAP National Executive, which met last Thursday.
