Yogendra Yadav, Prashant Bhushan rule out return to AAP

NEW DELHI: Rubbishing reports that the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) was holding talks with them for their return to the party, Swaraj India national president Yogendra Yadav and its leader Prashant Bhushan on Monday said there was no such possibility.
The two also denied any communication with AAP leaders and its founder member Kumar Vishwas.
Yogendra Yadav said: "I was surprised to read the claim that some Swaraj Abhiyan colleagues will join AAP again. I would be happy to know who these people are and what was their status in Swaraj Abhiyan."
Bhushan retweeted a media report that quoted AAP leader Kumar Vishwas as saying that the two were planning to rejoin AAP, terming it as "absurd".
Yadav and Bhushan were sacked from the AAP in March 2015 for alleged anti-party activities. They had hit out at AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal over his "supremo style of functioning" and "lack of transparency" in the party.
Vishwas on Sunday had shown his displeasure over AAP's functioning and said the party needed to go back to the basic idea of Swaraj, morality and inner democracy in the party.
According to reports, he said the party workers were in talks with many of their colleagues who had since left the AAP, including Bhushan and Yadav, and apologised for any wrongs done by the party.
However, when Millennium Post reached out to Vishwas, his office gave no confirmation of the statement. AAP sources said that no top leaders were present at the meeting and the party itself is in dark regarding the statement.
