New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has said he will be happy if dissident AAP leaders Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan return to the party.
“Agaraisa hua to bahut achcha hoga (If it happens, it will be very good),” the Aam Aadmi Party leader told India Today news channel. “Their return will be good for the party,” he added, denying allegations that his dictatorial attitude prevents their return.
Both Yadav and Bhushan were removed from the AAP in April for alleged anti-party activities following an acrimonious two-month-long war of words between the founding members of the party and Kejriwal backers.
Since then, Yadav and Bhushan have publicly accused Kejriwal of being intolerant of dissenting voices.
The two later launched a “Swaraj Abhiyaan” campaign to force the AAP to return to what they say were its foundational ideals. (IANS)
The Delhi BJP on Thursday staged a protest outside Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia’s residence here against the alleged assault on Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash and demanded Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s resignation.
Hundreds of Delhi Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) workers assembled outside Sisodia’s residence on Mathura Road and raised slogans against the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government.
The protest was led by Delhi BJP General Secretary Kuljeet Singh Chahal.
