New Delhi: A day after the rebel Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) faction led by Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan stopped sort of splitting the party by floating a new group, the Political Affairs Committee (PAC) of the party will meet on Wednesday amidst indications of strong action against the dissident leaders.
The panel is expected to refer the case of Yadav and Bhushan to the disciplinary committee of the party’s Delhi unit after the duo organised Swaraj Samvad convention at Gurgaon.
Aam Aadmi Party’s (AAP) Political Affairs Committee (PAC) is scheduled to meet this evening at Arvind Kejriwal’s residence. Interestingly, Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan will also hold a press conference at 4 pm today.
The senior part leaders had already warned of taking serious action against those attending the Swaraj Samvad convention.
Yesterday, in the convention, the leaders announced floating of a new group and also lashed out at the party leadership, questioning inner party democracy and transparency in the party.
The party is also expected to crack the whip on Anand Kumar and Ajit Jha, who were ousted from the party along with Yadav and Bhushan
Speaking to reporters, AAP leader Ashutosh had said the party will “soon” sit down to discuss the developments at the dissident-led convention and take an “appropriate” decision in this regard.
On Monday, senior AAP leader Sanjay Singh too had warned of action against those attenting the meeting, saying the PAC will decide on their fate.
“Today’s developments clearly indicate that they (rebels) have decided to break the party. Now they will perhaps decide what future course they should chart out,” Ashutosh said.
