New Delhi: AAP’s dissident group, led by Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan, is discussing the way forward for the party at a day-long ‘samvad’ meet on Tuesday.
Thousands of members from different states have joined the meet, as per reports. The meeting may result in the formation of a separate party though it is almost certain that Yadav, Bhushan and a few others will be removed from the party’s primary membership in the near future.
In an apparent dig at Kejriwal, Yogendra Yadav says he is amazed that AAP, which was formed on the basis of democracy, is now afraid of dialogue.
“One opinion is that everything is fine with party leadership and we should trust them, while the other is we should struggle or form another party,” says Yadav, when asked about future course of action.
By evening a final decision will be taken, Yadav further said.
Yadav urges supporters to return to party’s constitution, mission and vision in order to end the anger and sadness around them.
A number of AAP leaders and prominent individuals today stayed away from the convention of party rebels Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan and chose to express solidarity through written statements instead.
AAP had threatened to initiate actions against members joining the samvad.
