Aam Aadmi Party leader Yogendra Yadav on Sunday renewed his Jai Kisaan Abhiyaan from Panchkula in Haryana with an appeal to the party cadre to not lose hope and faith in the party.

Mr. Yadav, who is party in-charge in Haryana, was a few days ago dropped by the party from its Political Affairs Committee. But taking the developments in his stride, he quipped that just as in Holi people are smeared with both colour and mud, so too the party had witnessed a lot of things around the festival time. “But now Holi is over and work is to be started”.

Stating that he wanted to end infighting in the party, Mr. Yadav said he wants the activists to retain their faith in the party and work on its ideals and principles for eradicating corruption.

"We are all working for the party,” he said, adding that while some developments have taken place in the past week, it would be best for the party and the workers to get a move on.

He also refused to get drawn into the statement made by party leader Mayank Gandhi saying the matter should not be taken further. Mr Gandhi, who had criticised the removal of Mr. Yadav and Prashant Bhushan from the party PAC had claimed that he was being targeted after he wrote a blog to bring out the truth.

For his part, Mr. Yadav said the party’s Jai Kisaan Abhiyaan, which he had launched a month ago, would be continued with renewed vigour in the State to to protest against the anti-farmer policies of the BJP governments at the Centre and in the State.

As part of the campaign, a protest march was also taken out by the party from Mata Mansa Devi Singh Dwaar on the Kalka Shimla Chandigarh Highway to the residence of Ambala MP Ratan Lal Kataria in Panchkula. The party has been presenting salt bags to the Haryana MPs to remind them of their responsibility of raising the issues concerning the farmers and citizens of the State.
