The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) will take action against dissident party leaders Prashant Bhushan and Yogendra Yadav for organising ‘Swaraj Samwad’, an open dialogue against the party’s wish, a leader said Wednesday. Action will be taken against Prof. Anand Kumar and Ajit Jha too.
Talking to the media after the Aam Aadmi Party’s (AAP) Political Affairs Committee meeting here, AAP leader Sanjay Singh said: “We have referred the matter of Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan holding the ‘Swaraj Samwad’ to the national disciplinary committee. It will take suitable action.” He, however, refused to comment on when the action would be taken.
Yadav and Bhushan, ousted from the party’s national executive on March 28 for alleged “anti-party” activities, held a day-long conference on Tuesday that was attended by over 4,000 people, many of whom claimed to be AAP volunteers.
The event was seen as an attempt to break the AAP led by Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. Earlier in the day, Yadav and Bhushan hinted at forming a political party. (IANS)
