A week after being expelled from the Aam Aadmi Party, former district convener Kundan Gogia and Rajpreet Singh Aulakh on Sunday accused Patiala MP Dr Dharmvira Gandhi of being a dictator and proposed to launch a campaign against him.

Gogia said their termination was against the AAP’s constitution as neither was there any proof of their anti-party activities nor did the disciplinary committee give them a chance to defend themselves.

“The action was totally undemocratic. We will oppose it by meeting senior leaders, including Shanti Bhushan, at Delhi,” said Gogia.

He said he had been associated with the Anna Hazare Movement, much before AAP’s launch. “I was the first person to launch AAP as district convener. I built it here and ensured its victory in the Lok Sabha elections. Now, all volunteers are feeling suffocated because of the undemocratic functioning of elected leaders,” accused Gogia.

People have lost faith in the AAP as those who built the party and put in everything for its success in the Lok Sabha elections have been ignored by the party and its leaders.

He announced he would launch a drive against Dr Gandhi to expose how he dented the party’s prospects in Punjab by demoralising the workers.
