Gurpreet Singh Ghuggi, ex-chief of Punjabs AAP unit, quits party

AAP NRI office-bearers write to Kejriwal, say 'narcissistic' Bhagwant Mann shouldn't become Punjab convenor

The party's decision to appoint Sangrur MP Bhagwant Mann as the Punjab unit president has not gone down well with other leaders, including Sukhpal Khaira who resigned as the chief whip and party spokesperson.

Ghuggi said that since the allegations against the Delhi CM are serious and have been levelled by a former cabinet minister, the party workers expect a statement from the AAP chief.

The Sangrur MP Bhagwant Mann recently showed his rage against the poor leadership skills of the AAP party and blamed the party itself for its defeat in Punjab Assembly Elections.

"I'm resigning from the primary membership with a heavy heart".

A top source in the Congress had said some AAP MLAs had approached Congress and added that the party already had a near two-third majority with 77 MLAs, asserting that there won't be any advantage if inducted.

He said suspended party leader and MP Dharmavira Gandhi, MLAs Sukhpal Khaira and H S Phoolka could have been a better choice to head the as state unit. He accused the party of adopting a "pick and choose policy" and said inviting AAP members for the election was only a sham.

"Even today, I am ready to perform the job of pasting the party's posters on walls", he said.

The SAD MP, in a statement here, said, "Ghuggi is right in pointing out that a drunkard should not have been appointed to the newly created post of state president which replaces the nomenclature state convener as "a leopard can not change its spots". He said he would reach out to those upset with decisions, including his appointment.

The Home Minister added that the left-wing extremist groups were trying to weaken democracy in the country but would "never succeed" in doing so.

He said he would stay in politics but not with the AAP. "They call this election process, this is not election process it is a farce", Ghuggi said. "Some prominent leaders are joining our party soon", Secretary Punjab BJP, Vineet Joshi told India Today.

"It hurts me that I'm being forced to work under a person who has been made a Convener after the party convinced him to quit his drinking habits".

Reacting to Ghuggi's resignation, Khaira said he was saddened with this development as the party had lost a hardworking, clean and popular leader.

Adding up to his rude behaviour Mann indicated that the party's team acted like a "mohalla cricket team".
