AAP falling prey to 'undemocratic behaviour': Ramdas

Senior AAP leader Prashant Bhushan said that the party members who organised the 'Swaraj Samwad' meet are said to have been removed from the political organization.
If today we announce of forming a new political party, then dangers will be the same which AAP is facing: Prashant Bhushan
Now we are hearing that as we have organized this dialogue, we have been removed from party: Prashant Bhushan
We demanded that lokpal should be made in each state with final decisions taken by national lokpal, but party leadership denied it: Prashant Bhushan
It's been two years we can't even see the party decisions on party's website, what kind of transparency is this?
We promised that we will be the first party that will come on RTI: Prashant Bhushan.
Veteran Journalist Kuldip Nayyar also sent out a message said that "insulting" people like Bhushan and Yadav was a big mistake.
Clarifying that he is "not from and has never" been part of AAP, activist Nikhil Dey read out Roy's message. "We will have to make sure that common man has full stake in democracy. Alternative politics should be accountable, transparent and one that responds to people," she said.
Christina Samy, another expelled national executive member, social activists Aruna Roy, Medha Patkar, who had recently quit AAP, were also conspicuous by their absence from the Gurgaon meet.
AAP's Patiala MP Dharamvira Gandhi, who had earlier faced the leadership's ire for taking stand in favour of the dissidents, in a letter stressed the need to work towards strengthening the party's core ideals.

Audio message of Admiral Ramdas played out
An audio message of Admiral L Ramdas's, who was recently removed from the post of party's internal Lokpal, was played out from the stage. In the message Ramdas said that a samvad cannot be seen as an "anti party activity" and that people must be allowed to speak in a democracy.
At the convention, key leaders who were seen on stage include the four expelled members from AAP's national executive — Yogendra Yadav, Bhushan, Anand Kumar and Ajit Jha — Timarpur MLA Pankaj Pushkar and several Lok Sabha candidates from various states.

AAP warns volunteers
AAP on Monday sent out a strong message to volunteers who are likely to attend Tuesday's samvad, saying that it would be keeping an eye on the proceedings and take "necessary action" in the coming days. Sanjay Singh, who has recently returned from Odisha where he sought to dispel claims made by the other side, said that there was disillusionment within the cadre and where necessary, he would be travelling to various states to address volunteers directly. "The party has nothing to do with Tuesday's meeting. The way it is being advertised makes it seem AAP has moved away from its core values. This is defaming the party. After the outcome of this samvad becomes clear, we will decide what is to be done," said Singh.
Speculation is rife about the meeting's outcome with the possibility of the dissident group forming another political outfit not being ruled out.
The meeting may result in the formation of a separate party though it is almost certain that Yadav, Bhushan and a few others will be removed from the party's primary membership in the near future.
