SAD asks Kejriwal to expel Khaira from primary membership of party. CHANDIGARH: Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) on Wednesday said the face of AAP had become the face of drugs in Punjab with a judicial court making its state legislature party leader Sukhpal Khaira an accused in a drug recovery case with Pakistani connections, even a sit asked AAP Convenor Arvind Kejriwal if he would walk the talk and expel Khaira from the primary membership of the party.Addressing a press conference here along with senior leaders, former minister and SAD spokesman Maheshinder Singh Grewal said Kejriwal should also apologise to Punjabis for appointing Sukhpal Khaira as leader of the opposition despite his involvement in a drug case being in public domain. “Kejriwal should also make it clear as to where he stood on the issue of drugs now as he had made this the biggest issue in the last assembly elections,” he said.Stating that Sukhpal Khaira had earned the infamy of being the first and only leader of the opposition to be asked to appear as accused in a trans-border heroin smuggling racket by a judicial court, Grewal said Khaira’s involvement was evident from the 77 calls exchanged between him and drug trafficker Gurdev Singh, whom he had nominated as market committee chief of Dhillwan. Gurdev has been handed out maximum sentence of 20 years in this case.
