NEW DELHI — AAP leader Sanjay Singh on Monday said that attempts were being made to remove Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal as the party's national convenor.

"There are attempts being made to remove Arvind Kejriwal as the national convenor of the party," Sanjay Singh told reporters at a media briefing here.

He said that party's national executive would meet on Wednesday, March 4 to discuss the issue.

Sanjay Singh said that if there were disagreements within the Aam Aadmi Party, they should be discussed internally and not publicly.

The party will not be able to function smoothly if senior members target Kejriwal and make efforts to defame the party, he added.

Meanwhile AAP leader Yogendra Yadav on Monday said that he felt sad over false reports about him and Prashant Bhushan being unhappy with the happenings in the party, added this was a time to work with a large heart following their big win in Delhi.

"I feel sad and at the same time (feel like) laughing too after reading whatever is being said in the media about me and Prashant ji for the last two days... Delhi has given such huge mandate to AAP. I would appeal that we should not let the faith of people dwindle in the AAP," Yadav said in a tweet Monday morning.

"Today it is the time to work for the country. The country has great expectation from us (AAP)," Yadav added.

Reflecting his discontent about the functioning of the Aam Aadmi Party, senior leader Prashant Bhushan has written a letter raising questions about some decisions of party convenor Arvind Kejriwal who is now chief minister of Delhi.

In the letter, apparently written to members of party's national executive, Bhushan has raised questions about the party running a "person-centric" campaign in Delhi polls and not following some of its professed principles.
