Anger And Sadness Can End Only If We Return To AAP's Founding Principles: Yogendra Yadav


Quoting former internal lokpal Admiral Ramdas, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Yogendra Yadav on Tuesday urged supporters to return to party's constitution, mission and vision in order to end the anger and sadness around them.

"There are AAP volunteers who are still expecting some miracle to happen. For all those for whom AAP was the fresh gush of air, under these circumstances, we have to work very hard to keep the dream alive. The anger and sadness around must come to an end. For this I request that we all return to our constitution, we all must return to our mission and we must come back to the vision we had when the party started," Yadav said while reading out Admiral Ramdas' statement at the Swaraj Samvad meeting here.

Meanwhile, senior AAP leader Shanti Bhushan urged the supporters to keep the hope of bringing a 'change' in the country alive. He also said that the party should work towards improving the conditions of the farmers.

"AAP had given a hope to people that a revolutionary change will take place in the country, this hope must remain alive... AAP should think about improving conditions of the farmers.. We need to give a thought as to why farmers are committing suicide?" he said.

Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan held a 'Samwad Swaraj' meeting here earlier in the day. This meeting is being seen as an effort by the ousted duo to garner support from the like-minded people within the AAP.

Irked by the meeting, AAP leader Sanjay Singh had 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' meeting.

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.
