Yogendra Yadav To Be Removed As AAP’s Chief Spokesperson
Senior AAP leader Yogendra Yadav, after being sacked from the party’s PAC, will also be dropped as chief spokesperson.
After the sacking of senior Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leaders Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan from AAP’s Political Affairs Committee, Yadav is likely to be removed from the post of the party’s chief spokesperson as well.
Sources in AAP said the party will soon release a new list of spokespersons which will not figure Yadav’s name.
“We will soon come out with a fresh list of party spokespersons. Yadav will of course not be in the list,” a senior party leader requesting anonymity said.
The decision to remove Yadav from the post is an expected one following his removal (along with Bhushan’s) from the party’s Political Affairs Committee and National Executive.
The removal of Bhushan and Yadav from key panels is being seen as a precursor to their expulsion from the party.
Yadav was the only leader who had been designated as chief spokesperson when AAP first constituted its panel of spokespersons.
Yesterday, the party sacked Bhushan from its disciplinary committee, proceeding to replace him with a panel of three members known to be close to AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal.
AAP’s internal Lokpal Admiral (Retd.) L Ramdas was also shown the door for airing critical views about the party leadership. He has been replaced by a three-member Lokpal panel comprising two former IPS officers and one educationist.
