New Delhi, April 14: The UK unit of the Aam Aadmi Party has said that it will donate Rs 5 crore to the party fund if the top leadership makes public the unedited footage of the recently held National Council meet in Delhi.
The party's unit meeting was held in East London on Friday. It was attended by the party leaders and supporters from across UK, says Indian Express report.
According to news report, immediately after the UK unit made this announcement, the AAP removed the link to its UK arm from the party website.
The workers and supporters also expressed anguish over the recent crisis within the party.
Meanwhile, the convention of rebel AAP leaders Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan began on Tuesday morning with volunteers from across the country terming it a day of "new beginning" even as the Arvind Kejriwal-led party warned of action against those attending the event.[Limits were crossed, says Arvind Kejriwal on Bhushan, Yadav expulsions]
Yadav and Bhushan had announced their decision of holding the dialogue, 'Swaraj Samwad', to discuss the future course of action after their expulsion from AAP's top echelons, triggering speculations of floating a new party.
Before the session began, Yadav told reporters "I am sure we would witness something new here".
"It's a day of new beginning. AAP Constitution gives an ordinary member of the party, the freedom of expression which no other party gives and if the workers are using that freedom I am sure the party would respect it. I am not sure if the party has changed its own constitution," he said.
At the convention, key leaders who were seen on stage include the four expelled members from AAP's National Executive--Yadav, Bhushan, Anand Kumar and Ajit Jha--Timarpur MLA Pankaj Pushkar and several Lok Sabha candidates from various states.
Recently at a National Council meet, senior leaders Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan were removed from AAP's National Executive.
Apart from Yogendra-Prashant, Shanti Bhushan, Ajit Jha and Professor Anand Kumar were also removed from the party's national executive.
Amid high drama, a resolution to remove the two dissident leaders was passed by around 230 of around 300 National Council members present in the meeting.
