Chandigarh: The Aam Aadmi Party today fielded Himmat Singh Shergill against Sucha Singh Chhotepur for his comment about Arvind Kejriwal made during the press conference held at Chandigarh on August 26.
Terming the allegations levelled by ousted AAP Convenor of Punjab Sucha Singh Chhotepur against Arvind Kejriwal on the “Youth Manifesto issue”, Head of the legal cell of the party and party candidate from Sahibzada Ajit Singh Nagar (Mohali) asked why Chhotepur as a true Sikh remained silent on such ‘remarks’ by Arvind Kejriwal for so many days?
Notably Sucha Singh Chhotepur had said Arvind Kejriwal’s comment about Sikhi had made him to shiver in shock.

“Timing of such serious allegations against Kejriwal by Chhotepur shows that when he (Chhotepur) was facing allegations of accepting the ‘bribe’ of Rs two lakh on camera and he was exposed, he made such ‘baseless and false’ allegations against Kejriwal to divert attention from his sins”, Shergil stated.
“Moreover, Chhotepur himself claimed that Kejriwal made such remarks on July 29 at Amritsar, then why he kept quite on such a serious issue for so many days?, quipped Shergil adding that why he (Chhotepur) did not come out of the Car after listening such ‘anti-Sikhs’ comments, on which he (Chhotepur) claimed to get ‘stunned’ to listen.
Notably, the Sikh leaders of AAP, including Shergill and Chhotepur and others had not objected to Ashish Kehtan’s statement comparing party’s youth manifesto to Sri Guru Granth Sahib. Ashish Khetan had later apologises for his comment.
On the allegations levelled against AAP MP Bhagwant Mann by Chhotepur, Shergil said that it was wrong to ‘defame’ any person by making baseless allegations. Mann himself challenged everybody including his political rivals Sukhbir Badal and Captain Amarinder Singh for undergoing Dope Test, for which he volunteered to give his blood samples first, AAP leader said.
