Following the suspension and arrest of AAP MLA Sandeep Kumar, who was accused of raping a woman a year ago, more trouble is brewing for the party with leaders levelling accusations at each other. This time, an AAP MLA has claimed the party’s representatives in Punjab are “exploiting women in return for election candidature”.

This is the second such allegation against the AAP’s representatives in the state. On August 26, the party’s Punjab convenor, Sucha Singh Chhotepur, was sacked from his post following allegations of seeking bribe for party tickets.

In his letter to Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, AAP MLA from Bijwasan Colonel Devinder Sehrawat claimed he has received “disturbing reports” of women being “exploited” in Punjab with promises of election tickets from the party.

His claims were, however, denied by the party. Reacting to the allegation, senior AAP leader Sanjay Singh said, “The allegations are so absurd and baseless that we do not even want to respond to them. He has to get proof before talking like that.”

Sehrawat said at the moment, the information he had was “generic”. “I was perturbed by it all. There were talks about these things, there was spoken information and there was information in the public domain and on social media. This is a sensitive matter and it is about things that are exploitative in nature. In such a scenario, its not possible to get evidence right away. But I was alarmed and I have done my duty by pointing it out, whether or not anybody finds it palatable,” Sehrawat told The Indian Express.

He added that he was going to meet people in Chandigarh to check the situation on the ground. However, he added that MLAs in Delhi were unaware of what AAP leaders were doing as party representatives in Punjab.

In his letter, Sehrawat wrote, “Now the situation is getting indefensible and disgraceful. Action needs to be taken to remove rotten elements.”

The Bijwasan MLA also wrote to Anna Hazare, stating that the party is facing instances of misconduct and corruption. He said ministers and party conveners are involved in cases of “moral turpitude” because of which he has to face uncomfortable questions from his voters. “The internal differences in the party are making it more difficult”, wrote Sehrawat. Seeking Hazare’s guidance, Sehrawat said the party had drifted away from its ideals.
