A dignified exit would have been better. But when you have power everything is fair and end justifies means.  The expulsion episode is something this new political party could have taken care to avoid.  Aam Aadmi Party's national disciplinary committee on Monday expelled its founder-leaders Prashant Bhushan and Yogendra Yadav along with Anand Kumar and Ajit Jha for alleged “anti-party activities and gross indiscipline".

"I am not surprised as from the past few days the matter was moving in such direction. Though, I also cannot deny the fact that I am deeply hurt by it. How would you feel if someone drags and throws you out of your own house," Yadav was quoted by the media.

But what is surprising is the sour grapes remark of the rebels. Bhushan and Yadav on Tuesday said that they made a huge mistake in not identifying the true colours of Arvind Kejriwal.

Even Shanti Bhushan, father of Prashant Bhushan, said, "We made a mistake in identifying Arvind Kejriwal. It is a very serious mistake as to what kind of person he is. He is the new Hitler."

There is no point is crying hoarse and displaying naïve judgement. The rebel leaders should stick to their stand and build the movement as Delhi needs an alternative to Kejriwal. The civil society movement cannot be monopoly of one slogan and one person.

AAP decision process
The national disciplinary committee met on April 20, at 6 pm at 514, VP House to decide on the complaints against Yadav, Bhushan, Kumar and Jha. The committee received the responses of Yadav, Bhushan and Kumar while Jha failed to furnish his response within the prescribed time. The committee carefully considered responses furnished by Yadav, Bhushan and Kumar and found them unsatisfactory.

The committee reached the unanimous conclusion that Yadav, Bhushan and Kumar had indulged in ''gross indiscipline and anti-party activities''. They have violated the Code of Conduct detailed in Article VI A (a) of Party's Constitution.

The committee was of the view that Jha had failed to furnish his response in a stipulated time despite sufficient time at his disposal.

After examining the evidence put before it, the committee was of the unanimous view that Jha was also guilty of gross indiscipline and indulging in anti-party activities. The committee, therefore, decided to expel all the four members from the party.
