New Delhi: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) today today touched a huge low as Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan, two front-ranking leaders of the party, were removed without being given a chance to be heard at a controversial party meeting.
Yadav told media-persons later that Kejriwal’s goons and bouncers pulled his supporters away from the crucial meeting and dictatorial methods were used to gag dissent and exchange of views in a democratic manner. Delhi chief minister and AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal spoke for an hour and left before Yadav and Bhushan were voted out of the National Executive of the party.
Kejriwal later in the evening said that Yadav and Bhushan had tried to defeat AAP in Delhi elections.
AAP has rebutted the charge that bouncers were used to silence dissent. To drive home the point, AAP has asserted that they have signatures of 247 members who attended the party meeting. It has also been emphasised that many of them had voted for Yadav.
