AAP warns of action against those attending rebels’ meet

The Aam Aadmi Party on Monday warned of action against its members who attend a meeting called by dissident leaders Prashant Bhushan and Yogendra Yadav on Tuesday.

Senior party leader Sanjay Singh said that AAP’s Political Affairs Committee (PAC) and its National Executive (NE) would decide the next move in this regard after the conclusion of ’Swaraj Samvad’ meet called by the rebel duo being held in Gurgaon.

“Swaraj Samvad is not a party function. The PAC and NE will decide on what action needs to be taken after the meeting,” Mr. Singh told reporters.

The National Council, in its meeting last month, empowered the PAC to take disciplinary action against those giving negative statements about the party to the media.

The rebel camp of Mr. Bhushan and Mr. Yadav, who were ousted from the party’s two top panels last month, are also holding a meeting at Jangpura on Monday to set the agenda for the convention.

Several AAP volunteers from other states are expected to participate in the event.

AAP’s Timarpur MLA Pankaj Pushkar, former AAP leader and social activist Medha Patkar, tribal activist Soni Sori and rights activist Aruna Roy are expected to attend the event.

The rebel camp has also said over 100 candidates who had contested the Lok Sabha polls on AAP ticket will also attend.
