While Sadhu Singh was defending Sandeep Handa, the three-member disciplinary committee of AAP expelled Handa and Balkar Sidhu for anti-party activities on Wednesday. Sadhu Singh had appointed Handa as the district committee convener by sacking former convener Jivanjot Kaur. Later, Sadhu Singh had promoted Handa as the state ad hoc committee member. A press note issued by AAP read that Balkar filed his papers as Independent from Talwandi Sabo and Handa openly assisted him. This conduct of both was taken as undisciplined.
