Following the Upkar Singh Sandhu’s criticism to make Sangrur MP Bhagwant Maan as the party Punjab unit chief, Aam Aadmi Party on Wednesday expelled the senior leader from Amritsar over alleged anti-party activities.
Sandhu contested for Amritsar Lok Sabha seat by-poll in which he failed to come out victorious. He had on Tuesday opposed the decision of the party high command to appoint Mann as the convener for the party’s Punjab unit.
Sandhu has been expelled for his activities against the party, Mann said on Wednesday in a statement.
Mann said that the volunteers were the backbone of the party, but added that anti-party activities would not be tolerated.
Sandhu had resigned from SAD on October 24 last year, to protest sacrilege incidents in the state. He had joined the party back a month later. Before joining AAP, Sandhu had defected to the Congress from SAD.
