Different view not violation of code: Bhushan to AAP


New Delhi: In a firmly phrased reply to the Aam Aadmi Party’s show-cause notice to “rebel leaders” on disciplinary grounds, party member Prashant Bhushan said that having a different view doesn’t violate code of conduct.

“Members, other than office bearers shall be free to express their opinion within and outside the party, unless there is specific direction to the contrary by the party for a specific period. Mere expression of a difference of opinion will not be considered as violation of the code of conduct unless it violates the objectives of the party. You now want to become judges of your own cause,” he said.

Bhushan also accused the party of making ad-hoc changes in the AAP’s structure.

AAP had on April 17 served a show-cause notice to Yadav, Bhushan, Anand Kumar and Ajit Jha, who were earlier expelled from the party positions.

Yogendra Yadav, on Saturday called the notice a “joke” and claimed there was no reference to the charges of anti-party activities against him.
