Terming the allegations by Sucha Singh Chhotepur against AAP National Convenor Arvind Kejriwal on the “Youth Manifesto issue” as “baseless”, Head of Legal Cell of the party Himmat Singh Shergill on Sunday asked him why he remained silent over such ‘remarks’ earlier.“Timing of such serious allegations against Kejriwal by Chhotepur shows that when he (Chhotepur) was caught red-handed while accepting the ‘bribe’ of Rs two lakh on camera and he was exposed, he made such ‘baseless and false’ allegations against Kejriwal to divert attention from his sins,” he said.
“Moreover, Chhotepur himself claimed that Kejriwal made such remarks on July 29 at Amritsar, then why he kept quiet on such a serious issue for so many days?,” Shergill said, asking Chhotepur why he did not come out of the car after listening such “anti-Sikh” comments over which he claimed to got “stunned”.Chhotepur, who was removed as Punjab convenor by AAP in the wake of allegations that he took bribe from a ticket aspirant, had been asked to comment at a press conference here on Friday on party’s youth manifesto which courted controversy after the symbol of the party was superimposed on Golden Temple.
