A full-blown war broke out in AAP on Friday with dissidents Prashant Bhushan and Yogendra Yadav daring the leadership which appears all set to throw them out at its crucial National Council meeting on Saturday. Sources said Kejriwal’s camp was likely to move a resolution at the meeting to remove the two dissident leaders from the party for allegedly conspiring to replace Kejriwal from AAP convenor’s post. There are speculations that Kejriwal will chair the meeting and both Yadav and Bhushan are unlikely to contest the move.
The proceedings of the meeting will reportedly be videographed.
