"Dialogue never breaks anything but joins it...(on the other hand) the manner in which the March 28 meeting was conducted using bouncers... leaders were expelled without issuing show cause notice or waiting for their replies that is an attempt to break the party," Yadav told newspersons here.
    
Currently touring the country in order to drum up support for the Gurgaon meet, he said there is no attempt on his part to criticise anyone but to sit together and find a way forward and see how all can come together for achieving the goals the party had set three years ago.
    
Asked if he has extended invitation for the 'swaraj samvad' to his leader and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, he said that an open invitation has been sent by 48 people who are in the party or have been in it and he was one of them.
    
"We are getting unprecedented support for the samvad after we put out the invitation on website...so far 3591 people have registered themselves for taking part in the samvad and 661 are from UP...so far Kejriwal has not registered himself," he said.
    
"If he does, we will reply to it," he said.
    
To a question on whether his move of going to the meet with the expelled leaders is not an act of rebellion, Yadav replied in the negative.
    
"To the contrary , it is a matter of pride for me that I am sitting here with Vishal Sharma who opposed the goonda gardi in the national executive meeting and left their side," he said, adding that questions are bound to be asked about issues such as transparency and collective decision making among others.
