Chandigarh: Sucha Singh Chhotepur, who wasrecently sacked from the post of Punjab convenor by AAP, today said he will tour Punjab and meet his supporters to seek their opinions over his future course of action.
“I have been meeting 200-300 volunteers every day and now I will start touring Punjab after Thursday to seek opinions and views of supporters on what to do next,” he said here.
“Volunteers are my strength. Whatever their suggestion – be it positive or negative – and whatever consensus finally comes out, I will act accordingly,” he added.
The whole process of meeting volunteers will take about 20 days, he said.
Chhotepur claimed he has been getting “massive support” from the volunteers from across India and abroad after he was removed as Punjab Convenor.
“I had put in my heart and soul for two-and-half years to build the party and supporters are with me,” he said.
Speaking on AAP’s prospects in the 2017 assembly polls, Chhotepur projected a “setback” to the party.
“When there is a fight in a house or party, it will suffer,” he said.
He had earlier claimed there was “strong opposition” by volunteers against 25 candidates out of the 32 tickets given so far by AAP in Punjab.
Chhotepur’s removal has posed a tough challenge for AAP which has been eyeing to wrest power from SAD-BJP combine.
Punjab Congress Chief Amarinder Singh has already said, “Congress party’s doors are open for everyone whether Chhotepur, Navjot Sidhu…” After Chhotepur’s removal, his loyalists had even launched protest in Gurdaspur against AAP and had burnt the effigy of party’s national convenor Arvind Kejriwal.
