New Delhi, March 28 (IANS) AAP members Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan on Saturday said a scuffle broke out during the National Council meeting here, a charge rubbished by the party, which maintained it was "peaceful".

Founding members Yadav and Bhushan were sacked from the National Executive following which the two said AAP members behaved like hooligans and beat up people who tried to oppose the resolution to oust them.

Many who were not members were brought in for the meeting, said Yadav.

Yadav's supporters Anand Kumar and Ajit Jha were also removed from the AAP's 21-member National Executive, the party's highest executive body that coordinates its activities at the national level.

Earlier at the meeting, after party convenor and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's speech, around 10 people stood up and shouted slogans 'Gaddaron ko nikalo' (sack the traitors), Yadav said.

He said Kejriwal provoked members in the meeting, and that it was an "orchestrated performance".

Yadav said two bouncers dragged Ramzan Chaudhary, AAP member who supported the two, and thrashed him.

Chaudhary said: "I was only asking for a debate in the meeting and bouncers beat me. I also have fractures."

Yadav said that "when I asked Arvind why was a council member being beaten up, he stood still."

However, AAP rubbished their claims and said the meeting was "peaceful".

"No violence, no bouncers were used and the meeting was peaceful," said the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP).

Party leader Sanjay Singh brushed aside allegations that violence was used in the meeting, saying they are "completely baseless and untrue cooked-up stories".
