NEW DELHI: In their first public address as members of Swaraj Abhiyan, a new group they formed on Tuesday, Aam Aadmi Party leaders who were un democratically removed from the posts of PAC and NE NC last month, both Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan said their movement was for self-government in not only politics but also society.

“We have started a campaign to take forward the ideals on which AAP was founded. However, while continuing to be a part of AAP, we will carry on our work under a different organizational structure,” Bhushan said, adding, “We may form a political party but for that we have to prove two things. Firstly, that this organization is true to the principle of swaraj and, secondly, we should be able to grapple with issues pertinent to our times and have more people join our movement.”

Prof Anand Kumar has been designated national convener of the movement unanimously by the Abhiyan committee and special invitees present in the meeting held during the day on 15th of April at NDT Bhavan Delhi.  A working committee, comprising all seven people expelled from AAP’s national executive and Timarpur MLA Pankaj Pushkar will lead the organization till a steering committee is elected.

There will be no photos of living persons on our material nor will there be slogans about a single person. People have failed to differentiate between anti-leader and anti-party. Why should we leave AAP when we have done nothing that is against the party?”
