NEW DELHI — Ousted Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) rebels Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan will hold a 'Samwad Swaraj' meeting here on Tuesday.

According to reports, the meeting will be attended by over 3,000 members and it is likely that the deliberations will focus on whether there is a need to announce the formation of a separate political party.

Meanwhile, AAP leader Sanjay Singh has said that the party's Political Affairs Committee (PAC) and National Executive (NE) will decide on the next move after the conclusion of the 'Swaraj Samvad' meet.

"Swaraj Samvad is not a party function. The Political Affairs Committee (PAC) and National Executive (NE) will decide on what action needs to be taken after the meeting," Singh said.

"The way in which the preparations are going on, it clearly indicates that instead of raising an anti-party voice within the party, they (Bhushan and Yadav) are setting up an open stage to send out a wrong message to the nation about the party," he added.

Yadav and Bhushan, both founding members of AAP, were removed from all important party posts last month.

They stand accused of working against party chief Arvind Kejriwal and for unsuccessfully trying to undermine the AAP's campaign during elections for the Delhi State Assembly in February this year. The poll result was in favour of Kejriwal, who has since become chief minister for a second time.
