Providing "inside details" of the meet, which witnessed turbulent scenes, the two leaders accused Kejriwal of instigating the NC members against the dissident leaders in an "orchestrated performance" and of inaction when certain members were being heckled. They alleged that Kejriwal during his speech threatened to resign if they were not removed from the national executive.

"He traced the partys journey from the last National Council meet to the current one," a senior leader said. But soon after that he mounted a sharp attack on the dissident duo and asked the members to "make a choice between him and them."This prompted Yadav and Bhushan to accuse him of "instigating" the members."He categorically pointed out that Prashant Bhushan and his father Shanti Bhushan and Yadav made every effort to defeat AAP in Delhi elections. "He said that when the whole party was working towards ensuring its victory in the polls, they were scheming for its defeat," the leader said.
