Amid heavy infighting within its top brass, Aam Aadmi Party's (AAP) national executive met here in the national capital on Friday after which the party tried to put a brave face, claiming freedom to leaders to voice their opinion. Sources, however, pointed out that there are deep fissures between some leaders, including senior members of the party.

The party is expected to witness several changes within the party forums which could be restructured. AAP's four MPs are also expected to find a place in party's decision making fora. AAP said none is isolated in the party, including Yogendra Yadav, and they are also trying to bring back Shazia Ilmi, who recently left the party, accusing it of having lost direction.

"We did not discuss resignations today. No resignations have been accepted by the party," said spokesperson Sanjay Singh.

"There is no denying that there is a deep division among some leaders due to the ugly spat that has emerged in the last fortnight or since the election results came out on May 16. Letter wars between top leaders like Manish Sisodia, Yogendra Yadav, Naveen Jaihind only made it uglier," said party sources.

Sources explained that attempts were made in the national executive to calm and tone down things but all is not well at the moment.
