After days of bitter exchanges between AAP party members, thre is now visible signs emerging of a possible reconciliation between the two factions of AAP.  It is learnt  senior leaders from the Arvind Kejriwal camp met Yogendra Yadav  and held discussions over several contentious issues, hours after the Delhi Chief Minister’s return from Bengaluru. Both the camps have termed the discussions as “positive”. Party sources said AAP leaders Sanjay Singh and Kumar Vishwas, Ashutosh and Ashish Khetan met Yadav and the discussions continued till weee hours of the morning.

 The discussions took place at a time when Yadav and Prashant Bhushan had sought time from Kejriwal for a meetin gto put an end to the ongoing controversy. A message was sent to Kejriwal on behalf of both the leaders. Though there was no response from Kejriwal to the SMS sent so the AAP leaders then met Yadav. “We were bothered with what was happening in the party for the past few days. We started talks with Yogendra (Yadav) bhai. The start was good,” Sanjay Singh tweeted.

 “There is peace after a three-hour sleep. There is peace now. We will be successful,” party leader Kumar Vishwas tweeted this morning. Over the past few weeks, AAP had been embroiled in internal turmoil with leaders from both the camps making accusations and levelling allegations against each other. The Kejriwal camp had alleged that Bhushan and Yadav wanted the party to lose the Delhi Assembly elections and were attempting to remove the Delhi Chief Minister from the post of AAP National Convener. The duo were dropped from the all-power Political Affairs Committee of the party at a meeting earlier this month. Kejriwal flew back to Delhi after 12 days of naturopathy treatment in Bengaluru for chronic cough and diabetes.
