Chandigarh:Rebelling against his own party just days ahead of the polls in Punjab, AAP leader Gurlabh Singh Mahal on Wednesday claimed the sting operation against expelled Sucha Singh Chottepur was a “well planned conspiracy” hatched by party leaders as his growing stature posed a threat to Arvind Kejriwal.
Mahal alleged that the conspiracy was hatched by Aam Aadmi Party leaders like Sanjay Singh, Durgesh Pathak, Himmat Singh Shergill and Harjot Bains. After Mahal’s video, showing Chottepur taking bribe and which went viral, AAP expelled him from the party even as he denied the charge. Later, he floated Apna Punjab Party (APP) and fielded its candidates in the upcoming Punjab polls.”Chhotepur had emerged as a Sikh face in Punjab with majority of the party activists backing him. This eventually did not go down well with Kejriwal who hatched a conspiracy to sack Chottepur,” Mahal alleged.An activist of AAP since 2013, Mahal is the joint secretary of the party’s ‘Legal Cell’ in Punjab. “Surprisingly, based on my sting which was inconclusive, AAP went on and removed Chottepur as convenor of Punjab Unit,” he said.
Aapna Punjab Party president Sucha Singh Chhotepur said,” I am happy that the false allegations of corruption against me are out in the open which is half the battle won for me. Moreover, it was important for the people to know about the double faced Aam Aadmi Party national convener Arvind Kejriwal and his brigade who are trying every trick to dupe people added Chhotepur.
