New Delhi: Battling growing infighting, the Aam Aadmi Party today went on damage control mode by deciding to restructure it and rejected resignation of its senior leaders Yogendra Yadav and Shazia Ilmi who had attacked Arvind Kejriwal for lack of internal democracy in the party.

Making an announcement at the end of second day's National Executive meeting, senior AAP leader Prashant Bhushan said the resignations were rejected “unanimously” and that all the differences were sorted out in a “cordial manner” Yadav had quit from Political Affairs Committee after charging Kejriwal of “falling prey to personality cult” while Ilmi had resigned from the party saying a coterie surrounding the former Chief Minister was running the party.

Bhushan said the National Executive had also rejected the resignations of Haryana convener Naveen Jaihind.

“There would always be some differences. All these diferences were discussed in a positive and cordial manner. The party has decided to reject the resignations and move forward,” he said.

Earlier, Kejriwal put up a brave front claiming that things are going smooth and there will be an organizational restructuring soon including possible expansion of AAP's Political Affairs Committee, the highest making body.

Yadav said by tendering resignation, he sought party's attention over some issues and wanted a discussion on them.
