The implosion within the Aam Aadmi Party is far from over. In another addition to the ongoing churn within the party that rules Delhi, senior spokesperson Atishi Marlena on Tuesday shot out a scathing letter to rebels Prashant Bhushan and Yogendra Yadav for remaining adamant in their demands and tarnishing the image of the party.

"Admiral Ramdass (and other senior leaders) were involved in a dialogue to resolve the crisis, which would have paved the way forward for the very changes Prashantji and others talked about in the party," the letter says."But I was appalled Prashantji, because you refused to accept these terms since Shanti Bhushanji said no. The same Prashant Bhushan, who can take on the strongest forces in this country, didn't agree to something in the larger interest of the party because his father said no," it says.

Marlena said the allegations of the two leaders about not being given a chance to express themselves is not true. "When Sanjay Singh's consensus-building broke down because of Prashantji's action, all of you repeatedly said in public that talks broke down on matter of principles, that the other side was not serious about the negotiation. It was just one side of the picture and not the complete truth," she says.
