AAP's former Punjab chief Gurpreet Ghuggi quits party

AAP's former Punjab chief Gurpreet Ghuggi quits party

AAP's outgoing convener - Gurpreet Singh Waraich also questioned the "urgency" in appointing Mann as the new state chief and asked under "what pressure" this decision was taken. Meanwhile, AAP's newly-appointed state president Bhagwant Mann in a statement issue on Wednesday said the volunteers were the backbone of the party but none of their anti-party activity would be tolerated.

Comedian-turned-politician Waraich told the media here that he has resigned from the primary membership of the AAP.

The former State convener said he resigned in protest against the unfair method of selection of the new State unit convener and blamed Kejriwal for ignoring the opinion of party workers while terming the procedure as arbitrary.

Reacting to party's decision to suspend another senior leader, Patiala MP Dr Dharamvira Gandhi who was suspended from party two years ago said, "AAP came with an ideology, but with that ideology gone for a toss, the party has also lost its standing".

"We the overseas team recognise HS Phoolka, Kanwar Sandhu, Sukhpal Khaira, Aman Arora and other MLAs as the stalwarts of the Punjab AAP Team and future state decisions and national decisions should be made in the presence of these individuals", the letter says. None of the senior leaders from Delhi including Arvind Kejriwal has visited Punjab after the Assembly elections. I held party reins during the crisis, sacrificing my work.

Similar sentiments were echoed by NRI volunteers of the party who had written to Arvind Kejriwal against elevating Mann to the post of Convener.

"They chose to pick and choose amongst the 20 party MLAs and other members and said they had taken a decision to appoint a new convener". He is expected to reach Punjab "in a few days", and added that his best wishes are with Ghuggi. "His resignation is a direct result of the moral degradation of the AAP", he said.

Waraich said that his opposition to the appointment Mann was not about him individually but about the manner in which it was done.

Ghuggi said that Mann had worked very hard for the party. I'm personally not against Mr. Mann, but against his appointment due to his alleged drinking habit.
