Sounding a reconciliatory tone even as his fate in the party hangs in the balance, senior leader Yogendra Yadav said the crisis was an "opportunity" and that he will not quit.
Reconciliatory noises began to emerge hours before AAP national executive meeting on Wednesday. AAP functionary Ashish Khetan apologised for statements against family of Prashant Bhushan while national executive member Prof Anand Kumar dismissed allegations that the party's internal feud would led to expulsions of its two senior members — Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan.

Ahead of Aam Aadmi Party's much-hyped national executive meeting, Punjabi NRI community has launched a 'ghanti bajao' campaign to urge the committee members to stay united in the interest of the party. The calling drive is aimed at giving direct feedback to the party leaders about the general expectation to set an example in handling internal bickering.
Chances of any reconciliation between the two groups seemed to be dimming and a public ouster of Bhushan and Yadav from the PAC (political affairs committee) appeared imminent, said sources. Bhushan in his letter had indicated that the party was "faltering" from its founding principles of accountability, transparency and inner party democracy.
Yogendra Yadav, who is facing the possibility of being removed from AAP's top panel PAC (political affairs committee), said that "If I am not capable enough to be in PAC, I should be removed".
AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday resigned as party convenor, just before the party's crucial national executive meeting.
