Senior Aam Aadmi Party leaders Yogendra Yadav and Naveen Jaihind have offered to resign from the party posts held by them. Their resignation letters have been sent to AAP Chief Arvind Kerjiwal and a final decision will be taken.

AAP’s spokesperson Dilip K Pandey tweeted that Yogendra Yadav and Naveen Jaihind will remain in the party and their resignations are to be reviewed at the national executive committee meeting. He clarified that the two leaders have only offered to resign from the party’s political affairs committee and national executive committee, and not from the party itself.

However, AAP has not accepted their resignation.

Yadav, in a post on Twitter, rubbished rumours of him quitting the party.

Yadav is the party in-charge of Haryana and Naveen, who was AAP’s candidate in Hisar, is a member of the party’s national executive committee.

If news reports are to be believed, Naveen and a few other leaders from Haryana were upset with Yadav’s working style.

“Yadav has some issues with what I had to say about our work in Haryana. It seems he felt offended by what I had said so I told our leaders that if they find what I have said or done to be wrong then I will be happy to resign from the posts I have taken up with in the party. I will work as volunteer and resign from National Executive,” Naveen told reporters.

          (1) AAP leaders should stop such resignation drama & internal fighting which damage party picture--rather they should have 'team spirit' to shape the future.(2) The party has not lost any thing but achieved much more than expectations only in 18 months. AAP has stirred the country & it reached gr roots. Now AAP should have 'introspection' (to err is human) and try to patch up the "communication-gap", with people, which was created in resigning Delhi govt.(3) AAP's ideology is still 'intact'. 'Winning number' in election is not imortant-reaching gr root & the national impact it created are important. AK pla a great role in bringing the corruption & scams of Cong to the surface (channels were backing AK till that time when AK tried to unveil the alleged falsehood of 'Gujarat Vikash' & 'Modi-Corporate' links - then channels turned their face from AK which shows that they were for BJP) which helped BJP to come to power (because people wanted an alternative to Cong, & BJP was the only alternative to people as BJP has strong party organisations in the country and huge party funds to spend allegedly thousands of crores for campaigns unlike AAP).(4) AAP has a bright future (a right cause will never fail). AAP has to face much opposition and hardship on it's way because it is not a party like other parties. AAP's goals-reforms- can not be achieved so easily-- as 'corruption' & 'crony-capitalism', against which AAP is fighting, is deep rooted and people involved are very powerful! (5) I have read today--Mr Kuldeep Nayar has opined that AAP can also become an alternative party provided it strengthens it's party organisations in the country and widens it's power-centre. I wish AAP best of luck .
