New Delhi: The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) last night (April 20) expelled it’s founding leaders Prashant Bhushan, Yogendra Yadav, Anand Kumar and Ajit Jha for alleged anti-party activities and “gross indiscipline”. They were served a show-cause notice two days back, to which three leaders, except Ajit Jha, had replied in writing.
The decision to sack them from the party was reportedly taken by Aam Aadmi Party’s central disciplinary committee. The committee said that their response to show-cause notice was not satisfactory.
“The party’s disciplinary committee has taken a decision to expel Prashant Bhushan, Yogendra Yadav, Anand Kumar and Ajit Jha. They were expelled for gross indiscipline, anti-party activities and violation of code of conduct of the party,” said party spokesperson Deepak Bajpai.
Expelled leaders were served a show-cause notice on April 17 to explain the reason for organising “Swaraj Samwad”.
Bhushan was charged with working for party’s defeat in the Delhi assembly polls. He was also charged with supporting AWAM, a break-away group of the party.
