New Delhi: The Aam Aadmi Party has not sent any expulsion order yet, Yogendra Yadav said on Wednesday. Yadav and lawyer Prashant Bhushan were expelled from the Aam Aadmi Party on April 20 nights for anti-party activities.
Speaking on the sidelines of “Swaraj Samwad” organised here, Yadav said: “Even after a week the party announced our expulsion, I have yet not received any expulsion order from AAP.”
I do want to put it on record that even after a week of the party’s announcement of our expulsion, I have yet not received any expulsion order,” said Yadav.
“In the media there is a press release, which announces it. I haven’t received any communication which says I have been expelled, which gives reasons or even says it’s the National Disciplinary Committee’s order,” he added.
Earlier, the AAP had expelled four of its rebel leaders, including founding-members Prashant Bhushan and Yogendra Yadav, for ‘anti-party activities’. AAP members Anand Kumar and Ajit Jha were also asked to leave.
He said: “Swaraj Abhiyan may be anything; it is not a rebellion against Aam Aadmi Party. It is not a rebellion against any party. It is not a negative campaign against anyone or anything.”
Yadav also said that in the coming days Swaraj Samwad will be organised in different states, after which a nation-wide yatra will be held.
In addition to Yadav and Bhushan, the AAP had also removed Ajit Jha and Anand Kumar.
A fortnight after its historic victory in the Delhi polls, the party plunged into a crisis, with its founding members – Bhushan and Yadav – accusing its chief Arvind Kejriwal of having developed “dictatorial tendencies”.
