14 April, New Delhi
Aam Aadmi Party rebels Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan today announced a separate non-political group called the ‘Swaraj Abhiyan’ pledging to work for alternative politics.
The two leaders announced that the Swaraj Abhiyan will be a fight for the rights of farmers, women and common man across the country through protests and rallies. The two leaders held off on announcing a new political party, which had been widely speculated.
Bhushan said that if we announce a political party today, it will be fraught with the same dangers that we see in the Aam Aadmi Party.
However formation of political party later on was also not ruled out. The convention of rebel AAP leaders was held in Gurgaon Tuesday with volunteers from across the country attending it.
AAP has already hinted at action against the rebels tomorrow, Wednesday.
