A day after Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal sacked women and child welfare minister Sandeep Kumar from his cabinet, the Aam Aadmi Party is likely to constitute a disciplinary committee to look into the case.

Sources said any action against Kumar on his future in the party can be taken only after the committee comes out with its findings.

PWD minister Satyendar Jain defended the party on the issue. “Is the action taken any way less. The party will eventually decide (on him),” Jain told reporters.

The party has, however, failed to take any disciplinary action like suspension against legislators, who have embarrassed the party in the past.

After chief minister Arvind Kejriwal sacked Asim Ahmed Khan from the post of environment minister over allegations of corruption, a committee was constituted to probe the matter besides recommending a CBI investigation.

Khan, however, continues to be in the party despite the former minister recently alleging that chief minister’s office conspiring to get him eliminated.

Former minister Jitender Singh Tomar, sacked after he was arrested in a forgery and fake degree case, also continues to be in the party.
