There were conflicting versions to Kejriwal's offer to quit. In one, Kejriwal apparently wrote a letter on February 27 to party secretary Pankaj Gupta saying that he wants to quit as the AAP convenor.

The AAP National Executive met here on Wednesday to decide on the fate of its two senior leaders Prashant Bhushan and Yogendra Yadav even as attempts are being made for reconciliation of both the camps.

While Yadav has offered an olive branch to the party's top brass saying the question of Arvind Kejriwal staying as National Convener has never been an issue while Bhushan has said that he was "firm on ethics".

Ailing Delhi Chief Minister Kejriwal, who had on Tuesday said he was "hurt and pained" by the "ugly battle" in the party, was not present for the meeting.

Just before the NE committee meet, Ashish Khetan, a key member of AAP's Delhi unit, which is demanding stern action against Yadav and Bhushan, softened his stand after having lashed out at the duo in tweets on Tuesday.

In the other, Kejriwal wrote on Tuesday night that he wants to quit. AAP leader Ashutosh said he was not aware of any other note except the one on February 27.

The handwritten letter comes amid squabbling within the AAP and ahead of a meeting of the 21-member National Executive.

Kejriwal on Tuesday said he was "deeply hurt and pained" by the wrangling within the party, which had stormed to power last month in the Delhi assembly elections.
