Demand For Action Against Khaira, Sandhu Gets Louder in AAP
The demand for action against the AAP rebels Sukhpal Singh Khaira and MLA Kanwar Sandhu gets louder with the party's district heads and zonal presidents today demanding "tough stance" against the dissidents for allegedly trying to "break" the party.
A meeting of 15 district presidents and five zonal presidents was today chaired by Sangrur MP Bhagwant Mann here. Khaira is leading the group of seven dissident legislators.
"In a meeting here, district presidents and zonal chiefs of Punjab unit today sought action against Khaira and Sandhu for trying to break the party," AAP MLA and Leader of Opposition (LoP) Harpal Singh Cheema said here.
No decision has been taken on the demand, he said.
Cheema further said that the scheduled meeting of AAP senior leader Manish Sisodia, who is also the party's state affairs in-charge, at Jalandhar has been postponed.
"Because of some pressing engagements, Sisodia ji will not be able to hold a meeting of block president, district presidents, zonal president at Jalandhar on August 13. It has now been postponed and a new date will soon be announced," said Cheema.
He said an appeal was also made to Bholath MLA Khaira to jointly fight for the burning issues of Punjab.
AAP plunged into the crisis after Khaira was removed from the LoP post last month. The dissidents MLAs had accused the "Delhi leadership" of the party of removing Khaira in an undemocratic way.
