New Delhi: The AAP on Monday night announced it predictable decision of expelling rebel leaders Yogendra Yadav, Prashant Bhushan, Anand Kumar and Ajit Jha on the grounds of gross indiscipline and anti-party activities.
However, both Prashant and Yadav expressed the offensive after being removed with the former liking the AAP to khap panchayats and the latter accusing the party of dragging and throwing him out of his house.
Bhushan, a senior Supreme Court lawyer, said, “AAP has become a party of dictrators like the khap panchayat. What has happened is illegal and undemocratic. Dreams have been shattered by a dictator and his coterie. Thankfully the drama is over now.” He also said,”I made a mistake in identifying Arvind Kejriwal, it is a very serious mistake as to what kind of person he is. He is the new Hitler”.
Bhushan said that he is not planning to challenge the AAP’s decision in court.
“Last night, there was sadness and anger, but today, there is determination.” Yadav said.
AAP claimed that Yadav, Bhushan and Kumar violated the Code of Conduct detailed in Article VI A (a) of the party’s constitution. Jha failed to provide his response but he was also charged with the same offence as the other three.
The rebel leaders had then organized a Swaraj Samved convention on April 17. Failing to declare a new political outfit, the rebels announced the starting of the Swaraj Abhiyan across the country.
