Speaking to The Indian Express, Sukhpal Khaira said there was no question of any meeting ground if the six resolutions of the Bathinda convention were not accepted.

At the convention organised by dissident MLAs of AAP, speakers raised the issue of Punjab’s water and targeted the “dictatorial attitude” and “flawed policies” of AAP leaders from Delhi. They also reiterated the “autonomy” of AAP’s Punjab unit.
Naveen Jaihind on Saturday himself circulated a copy of the FIR to the media and held a press conference at Chandigarh to term the police action as “politically motivated”.
Earlier, Bhagwant Mann had resigned as president of AAP’s Punjab unit after the party’s national convenor Arvind Kejriwal had tendered an apology to Bikram Majithia over drug remarks.

The party has alleged that the police had stopped the ‘Bhaichara Kanwar Yatra’ in Panipat on Tuesday on the pretext of checking. To oppose this incident, CM Kejriwal would join the yatra.
