Appearing to also rule out taking legal recourse against their removal from top AAP bodies, Yadav, in an essay entitled, 'Direction to a new politics?', wondered whether the anti-corruption movement, which gave "birth to AAP", should be an agent of alternative politics or be reduced to an ordinary political alternative.

Attacking the leadership of the Arvind Kejriwal-led party, Yadav cited that neither he nor Bhushan wanted the people to accuse them of being mute spectators to the "moral downfall" of the movement.

"The dilemma confronting us was preserving unity on the one hand and preserving the soul of the movement. We were torn between not partaking in the sin being committed on the one hand and not destroying the hopes of party workers all over the country," Yadav wrote.

Seeking to examine the merits and demerits of the options before them, Yadav added that quitting politics would "weaken democracy" while trying to bring changes within AAP was not possible as any difference of opinion was termed a "revolt" by the party.
