Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) volunteers reached the venue here from across the country to attend the meet.
Ahead of the meeting, Yadav said that it was a “day for new beginning” and the meeting was a “dialogue on alternative politics”. “This meeting is a dialogue on alternative politics and I am sure we will witness something new here (meeting),” Yadav said, adding “the AAP constitution gives an ordinary party member freedom of speech and expression which no other party gives”.

Yadav said: “If workers are using this freedom given to them by the party’s constitution, I am sure the party would respect it.” Another AAP member, Anand Kumar, who attended the meet, denied any possibilities of “breaking or leaving the party”. “We will neither break the party nor leave it. We will improve it. We will not create a new party here,” he said.
Two different kinds of forms were distributed among the volunteers, asking them about their views on present and future politics in the country.
