It requires great confidence to fool people on Jan Lokpal: Yogendra Yadav #EkSaalKejriwal

Arvind Kejriwal's government has completed one year on 14 February. The Aam Aadmi Party swept Delhi promising change and a corruption-free, people friendly model of governance. But one of the first actions that the AAP took after coming to power is purging leaders like Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan, who were criticising Kejriwal's "dictatorial" ways.

Yadav was part of the AAP since its inception and had played a critical role in shaping the party's ideology and institutions.

Speaking to Catch, Yadav discusses the Kejriwal government's performance in the last one year, its successes, failures and what lies ahead for his erstwhile party.

Despite his bitter falling out with the AAP, Yadav maintains that the party continues to be a source of hope for him.

Here's what he had to say:
