What does Atishi Marlena’s letter mean?

Atishi Marlena wrote a letter to Prashant Bhushan pretty much declaring a parting of ways and in the grand tradition of Aam Aadmi Party, the letter is in public domain. Several of Arvind Kejriwal’s supporters have been demanding that I comment on it. Presumably because they think it is a pro-Kejriwal letter or something. Here …

Prashant Bhushan’s open letter to Arvind Kejriwal and media

Prashant Bhushan wrote a devastating open letter to Arvind Kejriwal. For some reason, the media, while publishing “full text” managed to miss some. Parts in blue are missing in several news outlets like Times of India, Economic Times and NDTV – all of whom seem to have made similar omissions – more likely copied from the NDTV …

Dr. Dharamvira Dv Gandhi

BEWARE AAP, says AAP MP Dr. Dharamvira Dv Gandhi

Yet another powerful voice. Dr. Dharamvira Dv Gandhi, calls for reason within AAP. One that, like Admiral Ramda cautioning AAP in an almost prophetic letter before the rash manipulation that led to the ouster of Prashant Bhushan and Yogendra Yadav from the PAC, cannot be dismissed by AAP’s concerted attempts to present internal dissent, objections …

The problem with the ouster of Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan from the PAC

On the 4th of March, 2015, a meeting of the National Executive of the Aam Aadmi Party tabled accusations against Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan for anti-party activities and ended with a vote that saw them removed from the Political Affairs Committee. In my view, this decision was undemocratic and was arrived at in an unethical …

Another explained that the party was socialist overall, but these …
