Will Yogendra Yadav & Prashant Bhushan form a new party? Speculations are rife


New Delhi, March 31: Will Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan, the two senior Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leaders who were ousted from the party's National Executive (NE) last week following a bitter clash with the top leadership, float a new party?

Speculations about such a possibility are getting rife after the duo called a meeting with the supporters on April 14. The two leaders are expected to invite former AAP internal Lokpal L Ramdas and social activist Medha Patkar, who quit the party to protest the ouster of Yadav and Bhushan, to the meeting.

Yadav & Bhushan set to form new party?

Patkar resigned from the AAP on Sunday after terming the sacking of the duo from the NE as 'questionable and condemnable'.

A major ruckus broke out at the NE meeting here on Saturday as Ydav and Bhushan and their supporters were allegedly manhandled by supporters of party convenor and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and bouncers present there.

On Monday, Kejriwal said the AAP was "doing alright" following the inflighting and a crackdown on dissidents who had challenged his leadership.

Meanwhile, speaking to PTI, Yadav refused to divulge anything on their next move except saying that supporters, volunteers and well-wishers will meet on BR Ambedkar's birthday on April 14.

Yadav also said the AAP leadership would not stop before expelling him and Bhushan from the party and both of them were ready for it. He, however, said that he would not resign on his own.

The psephologist-politician said thousands of supporters and well-wishers of the AAP were disturbed by the way the party has functioned recently, after the massive victory in the Delhi assembly election in February.
