New Delhi :Dissident AAP leader Shanti Bhushan today skipped the National Council meeting here over alleged suspension of party members.
Bhushan, who is AAP’s founding member and father of the expelled rebel leader Prashant Bhushan, alleged that more than 40 National Council members have been served show-cause notices and some 90 people have not been informed about the meeting.
Bhushan had yesterday said that he will not attend the meeting as the venue had been shifted from Constitution Club to a hotel in Alipur on the Delhi-Haryana border.
The founder member, who was called the party patron when his relations with Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal were cordial, alleged that he feared a similar scene like that of last National Council meeting in March, where he claimed the party had brought bouncers.
The AAP dodged the question when asked about the absense and allegations levelled by Bhushan.
Bhushan had yesterday said, “The meeting being held is patently illegal and full of mala fide intentions. We are members of National Council of AAP and also the founding members of the party. We have been observing the fall in morals and values of the party for a long time and have proofs of wrong-doing and illegal activities being executed by the party.”
Bhushan added that he will take all recourses, political or legal, to stop the “disgusting” treatment towards the partymen and might also approach the Election Commission in this regard.
