Yogendra Yadav, Prashant Bhushan After its formation, Swaraj Abhiyan has been building the organisation not only in Punjab, but other parts of the country. Swaraj Abhiyan, a group formed by the duo and their supporters after their expulsion from the AAP, said they are “seriously thinking” about contesting the assembly elections in Punjab. Meanwhile, the party has said it will “back” musician Bhai Baldeep Singh from Khadoor Sahib assembly during by-poll in Punjab next month. Bhai Baldeep Singh, who is also a part of the national executive of the organisation, said, “Swaraj Abhiyan’s support is crucial for the polls.” AAP’s Timarpur MLA Pankaj Pushkar, two of the four MPs of AAP from Punjab -- Dhramvira Gandhi and Harinder Singh Khalsa -- are linked to Swaraj Abhiyan. The two MPs have also been suspended from the party, but not expelled. So, they technically remain AAP members. The organisation chose Punjab when it launched the ‘Jai Kisan Andolan’ that involved touring areas of states like Haryana, Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra and Karnataka that witnessed drought-like condition and farmers suicide. Targeting Kejriwal, the organisation has also opposed the Delhi government over education policies and “dilution” of the Jan Lokpal Bill.
