New Delhi: AAP founder member and veteran lawyer Shanti Bhushan today hit out at Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal for taking ‘extreme' step to expel senior leaders Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhsuhna from party.
“They talk about party with a difference but there is nothing like that. Why don't they expel me from the party?" the octogenarian leader said.
He accused Kejriwal of adopting a ‘dictatorial tone' after coming to power.
"The way they have expelled Prashant, is wrong. They are betraying people's trust,” he said.
He also compared Kejriwal's growing clout in the party to Mulayam in Samajwadi Party and Mayawati in Bahujan Samaj Party.
