The wheel has turned full circle. It always does when AAP is concerned. First the upstart party was voted to power in the 2013 Delhi polls. The euphoria was not to last long following which the party received a much-needed reality jolt in the 2014 general elections.

It came crashing down to earth, picked up the pieces and were back with a bang in a little over 12 months during the assembly elections held in the national capital last month. Back also came their internal differences. Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan have not exactly done a Shazia Illmi as yet, but they sure are bordering on it. Yadav however has said that he will continue to offer his services to the party irrespective of whether he remains in AAP's Political Affairs Committee or not, but no such statement has come from Mr Bhushan, at least till now.

All this may well be redundant now after Kejriwal's resignation as AAP convenor. Even if the reason given by him - not being able to juggle dual roles of AAP chief and Delhi CM - is to be taken with a pinch of salt, it may well have resulted in averting a massive disaster within the party which could well have had the most serious of repercussions for the entire political system. As long as that's the people's take on it, and more importantly the media's.
