Chandigarh: Seven of the 13 zonal in-charges of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in Punjab on Friday took a clear stand in the favour of the party’s sacked state convener Sucha Singh Chhotepur with also levelling serious allegations of corruption and moral turpitude over the core team of Arvind Kejriwal working in Punjab.
Going ahead, the zonal in-charges announced to keep themselves away from ‘corrupts’ practices of the AAP, with a firm mention that the party could stand in the state with their blood and sweat so they would soon take the control of the whole affairs and ‘if required they will push Kejriwal away.’
The seven were J S Dhaliwal (Anandpur Sahib), H S Cheema (Jalandhar), Gurinder Singh Bajwa (Amritsar), Narinder Pal (Bathinda), Amandeep Singh (Gurdaspur), Iqbal Singh Bhagowalia (Khadoor Sahib) and Gurpreet Singh Sandhu (Ferozepur). The agitating leaders of the AAP charged the top leaders in the party of selling the Vidhan Sabha tickets. Amritsar zonal in-charge Gurinder Singh Bajwa claimed that the two tickets distributed in Amritsar districts were paid ones. To give impetus to thi statement he claimed to be possessing of all documentary evidence.
The disgruntled leaders charged Durgesh Pathak and Sanjay Singh categorically for being indulged in anti-social activities. They also claimed be having an objectionable video clip of Pathak. The irked leaders, while showing their majority for being more in numbers in the list of party’s total zonal in-charges, said they had given an ultimatum to the AAP till September 1 to oust all 54 observers from Delhi, besides reinstatement of Chhotepur with full powers but the demands were not kept. “Failed to evoke the response from national convener, we have decided to detach ourselves from those corrupt leaders of the party. Soon the control will be in our hands and we will run the show,” said the disgruntled AAP leaders.
Meanwhile, they termed Sangrur MP of AAP Bhagwant Mann an ‘all time drunkard’ and denied considering him as a politician. On being asked about the future course of action in the wake of the formation of new political front-Awaz-E-Punjab- they claimed: “Till date we are not in touch with that panel but the fight it to make Punjab SAD-free, we will have sitting with them and discuss the issue but the decision would be taken only after the consultation with volunteers.”
