NEW DELHI: In a major breakthrough, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) rebels Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan are likely to launch their own political party today, parallel with Swaraj Abhiyaan.

Sources inform that the duo plan to deviate from their apolitical platform Swaraj Abhiyan and give a formal announcement on Thursday.

The soon-to-be announced party is reported to contest 2017 MCD elections in Delhi, while a political party with focus on electoral politics will be launched by them by October.

However, Yadav and Bhushan are having meetings this month to decide on their plans for elections in Bihar, Punjab and Uttarakhand.
