Meanwhile on the second day of AAP executive body’s meet in Sunam, volunteers from Moga protested against district convener Ajay Sharma, outside the meeting venue. They alleged that Sharma had only promoted his close kin and hence wanted him to be replaced. Party leader Yogendra Yadav then came out of the meeting hall and pacified the volunteers, assuring them that a decision would be taken soon regarding the issue.
While AAP’s Sangrur unit had issued a press release on Friday claiming that member Bharat Hari Sharma and his 11 of his supporters had been expelled for anti-party activities, AAP’s disciplinary committee members Narinder Singh Walia and Baljit Singh clarified that no one was expelled.
They also declared Friday’s press release as null and void as they stated, that only the party’s disciplinary committee had the right to expel members. Bharat Hari Sharma is known to differ with MP Bhagwant Mann and he displayed that even on Saturday. “I started working for the party, when Mann was nowhere in the picture and now Mann never listens to us,” he said. Sources however revealed that Mann had called up Sharma to break the ice.
