Terming the ouster of Aam Aadmi Party’s founding members Prashant Bhushan and Yogendra Yadav from AAP’s national executive as “unjust”, RPI(A) chief Ramdas Athawale on Sunday invited the duo to join his party.

“Prashant Bhushan and Yogendra Yadav had a key role to play in the magnificent victory of Aam Aadmi Party in the Delhi Assembly polls. Removing them from the party’s national executive is an injustice to them. I invite them to come and be a part of the RPI,” Athawale told reporters in Mumbai.
