Decks Being Cleared to Launch New Aam Aadmi Party

As the AAP split is imminent and a breakaway AAP is on the cards, there is also a possibility that the Delhi government under AAP will also fall soon. Consequently, a fresh election in Delhi is expected in the near future.

As the dogfight is getting ugly between the quarrelsome khas aadmi’s (special men or leaders) of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), there is a likelihood that the breakaway group of the party will form a new political outfit. Its working title could be: New Aam Aadmi Party.

Arvind Kejriwal-led AAP and the dissident duo – Prashant Bhushan and Yogendra Yadav – are currently washing their dirty linen in public with a slew of accusations which are expected to bring the final demise of the party during its national council meeting scheduled for Saturday.

As it’s believed that Bhushan and Yadav will be formally thrown out of AAP on Saturday, both are expected to launch a new political party. They are also expected to rope in some top leaders of AAP who are unhappy with Kejriwal’s dictatorial working style.

Plus, both dissenters – Bhushan and Yadav – are subtly making statements that praise the role of volunteers in AAP. Their covert idea is to woo the AAP volunteers to their side so they could be used as pairs of hands and pairs of legs to promote the new party.

In a letter released Thursday, Bhushan and Yadav have listed five points in a proposal for AAP “to break the deadlock in the party.” The main points are:

1. The Party must put in operation its public resolve to voluntarily accept the Right to Information (RTI).

2. The volunteers’ voice must be heard in any key decision of the party such as selection of candidates or any major policy or programme.

3. The Party’s Lokpal and Lokayuktas should be actively involved in preserving the Code of Conduct for all office bearers and representatives.

4. The principle of autonomy of state units of the Party should be respected.

5. The existing vacancies in the National Executive should be filled by the National Council through secret ballot.

The letter further states that all these points are nothing but implementation of our own (AAP) Constitution and public pronouncements in keeping with the principle of Swaraj. If these are accepted, both of us (Bhushan and Yadav) will happily step down from the National Executive and will also give up all other party positions and responsibilities.

Reportedly, the Kejriwal camp has accepted this letter as a resignation of both the dissidents without carrying out the suggestions they made in the letter.

AAP is also blaming Bhushan and Yadav that they are running a smear campaign to dethrone Kejriwal who is the party supremo and also the Chief Minister of Delhi.

As the AAP split is imminent and a breakaway AAP is on the cards, there is also a possibility that the Delhi government under AAP will also fall soon. Consequently, a fresh election in Delhi is expected in the near future.
