NEW DELHI: A day after high drama in National Council Meet, the Aam Aadmi Party on Sunday released the 45 minutes long video of the Party Chief and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s speech.
In the video, Arvind Kejriwal is heard saying, “I am sad that some people in the party stabbed us in the back. When I came back from Bengaluru, I asked my team members to speak to Yogendra Yadav and sent them the same night at Yadav’s residence. From that day, we tried our best that the problem would get resolved.”
Kejriwal expressed disappointment with infighting in the top leadership and said “Now you have to decide if you want to be with me or them. If you want to keep them, I will quit from all party posts.”
Arvind Kejriwal did not vote and left the party after making an emotional speech at the National Council meeting.
