Patiala, Punjab: Aam Aadmi Party’s state convener Sucha Singh Chhotepur on July 16 made it clear that the leadership would not buckle under pressure of some of its functionaries.
He ruled out the possibility of dismantling the state unit as well as reinstating the expelled leaders, including Prashant Bhushant and Yogendra Yadav.
Snubbing Patiala MP Dr Dharamvira Gandhi and Fatehgarh Sahib MP Harinder Singh Khalsa, Chhotepur said these leaders should stop giving irresponsible statements and refrain themselves from indulging in anti-party activities.
Accompanied by party’s Sangrur MP Bhagwant Mann and national leader Durgesh Pathak, Chhotepur, who was in Patiala today to inaugurate a new party office, said no one was above the party even if he was an MP. “Everyone will have to abide by the party constitution and watch party’s interest,” he said.
Bhagwant Mann chose a middle path on the matter and refrained himself from commenting against the party leadership. He said all Punjab MPs were united and there was no issue that could not be resolved with mutual understanding. He said, “There was nothing wrong in disagreeing with the party’s decision but that does not mean the party is divided. I along with other three MPs would sit together on July 20 ahead of the Monsoon session of Parliament and resolve the matter.”

It may be recalled that party MPs Dr Dharamvira Gandhi and Harinder Singh Khalsa had complained that they were not consulted before recent reshuffle in Aam Aadmi Party’s Punjab unit. They had openly criticized state unit chief and party’s state affairs in-charge Sanjay Singh for running the party according to their will. Both MPs also alleged that Sanjay Singh and Chhotepur were destroying the inner party democracy.
Besides Gandhi and Khalsa, AAP’s state level disciplinary panel chief Dr Daljeet Singh had also criticised the central leadership of AAP for destroying the democratic values of the party. Dr Daljit Singh was expelled from the party yesterday.
