Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Thursday appointed its Rajouri Garden MLA Jarnail Singh from Delhi as its Punjab joint in-charge, a duty which is being singly performed by Mehrauli legislator Naresh Yadav, who was arrested and later got bail in a Quran desecration case in Punjab.

AAP spokesperson Deepak Bajpai said that Yadav was not being removed from his post. Jarnail will work alongside Yadav as joint in-charge and Punjab spokesperson, he said. “Congratulations Rajouri Garden MLA Jarnail Singh on being made the joint in-charge and spokesperson in Punjab,” Sanjay Singh, who is in-charge of AAP’s Punjab affairs said on social media.

AAP is locked in a triangular fight against the BJP-SAD alliance and Congress in the state which goes to polls next year. It released its second list of candidates on Thursday .
