Aam Admi Party (AAP) workers on Sunday raised a banner of revolt against party’s Punjab convener Sucha Singh Chhotepur on his home turf in Gurdaspur.
AAP workers, including Sukhwinder Singh Kahlon, Gurbax Singh, Jasbir Singh, Balwinder Singh, Jamit Raj, Tarsem Lal, Gulzar, Amarjit Kaur and Sukhwinderpal Singh, held a meeting at Ram Singh Dutt Hall here on Sunday.
Each of the speakers at the meeting alleged that the Punjab unit of the AAP had deviated from the basic principles of the party — bring change in the political system of the country, end criminalisation of politics, end nepotism, eradicate corruption and establish ‘swaraj’.
They alleged that undeserving people were being appointed in the state organisation of the party and people of good reputation were being ignored.
They criticised the party leadership for the selection of Chhotepur as the state party convener. They expressed dismay over the party’s move to drop Dr Daljit Singh of Amritsar, a reputed personality, from the membership of the party.
They said AAP needed to use its broom to cleansed the party of “unprincipled, corrupt and greedy” elements.
Chhotepur, however, was not available for his comments despite repeated attempt.
