New Delhi:

Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party convener Arvind Kejriwal on Monday called for Political Advisory Committee to discuss the issue of massive defeat in MCD elections and to pacify warring factions.

Arvind Kejriwal is learnt to be unhappy with the way Amanatullah Khan made the allegations after Kumar Vishwas called for a deeper introspection within the party in the aftermath of the electoral drubbing that the AAP received in Punjab, Goa and Delhi.

Kumar Vishwas had differed with Kejriwal on the issue of electronic voting machines (EVMs). He had refused to attribute the AAP's recent poll upsets to alleged manipulation of EVMs and had instead stressed on the need to introspect. Earlier in the day, Kejriwal met Sisodia at his residence. Sisodia and senior party leader Sanjay Singh also met Vishwas at his residence in Ghaziabad. 

The party's Political Affairs Committee (PAC), chaired by Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, is expected to take a call on the issue. Incidentally, Khan is a member of the PAC.
