New Delhi: Removal of senior leaders Prashant Bhushan and Yogendra Yadav from the Political Affairs Committee (PAC) will be discussed in the AAP’s National Council meeting later this month, party sources said.
The National Council, which has around 300 members is supposed to meet once every year. This year, the NC will meet on March 28. “Many issues including removal of Prashant Bhushan and Yogendra Yadav from the PAC will be disccused in the meeting. There are some other administrative issues, which is also likely to come up for discussion.
“However, there will be more clarity in what the agenda will be after Arvind (Kejriwal) comes back from Bengaluru,” sources said. The Delhi Chief Minister is on a 10-day break and is seeking naturo-therapy at Bengaluru, owing to persistent high sugar level.
Bhushan and Yadav were voted out from the PAC in the National Executive meeting held last week after a section of the party alleged that they wanted to remove party chief Arvind Kejriwal from the post of the National Convenor.
The National Council is the third most important body in the party after all powerful Political Affairs Committee and the National Executive.
The last NC meet, held in New Delhi on February last year, saw a heated debate over former minister Somnath Bharti courting controversy after leading a vigilante midnight raid on a Delhi colony and demanding that certain resident Africans be arrested for drug-racketeering.
