Swaraj India founders Prashant Bhushan and Yogendra Yadav have rubbished the reported claims of senior Aam Aadmi Party leader, Kumar Vishwas, that his party was in talks with them for their return to AAP.
Reacting to the report, Bhushan said, “An absurd report. There are no talks or possibility of our returning to AAP which has betrayed all the ideals of the Anti Corruption movement.”
Yadav, for his part, wrote sarcastically that the reported talks must have been a ‘secret’ affair since he had no knowledge about it.
He wrote, “Really? Must be very secret, since both of us have not heard about it!”
Must be very secret, since both of us have not heard about it!

Vishwas, according to a report by PTI, had sensationally claimed that AAP was holding talks with Prashant Bhushan and Yogendra Yadav, to facilitate their return to the party fold.
The controversial remarks, however, were refuted by a party leader close to Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal.
“If no one has joined a political party and wants to come here…if one has formed a political party and wants to merge their party with ours…if someone went back for doing social work after being unhappy with us…the list is long. From Subhash Ware to Anjali Damania, Mayank Gandhi, Dharamvira Gandhi to Prashant ji and Yogendra ji.
“We are synchronising the list (of such people). Dialogues are being held with them by volunteers. We will ask for forgiveness for the mistakes we did,” Kumar was quoted by news agency PTI.
