Chandigarh, January 10

AAP leaders have revolted against the party convener and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal over choosing the wrong people for tickets for the ensuing Punjab Assembly elections.

“It is being done at the behest of Delhi Chief Minister and AAP convener Arvind Kejriwal. Tickets are being sold to turncoats for crores of rupees. It exposes the hypocrisy of Kejriwal,” alleged Gurtej Singh Pannu, AAP youth wing president, Mohali district here today while addressing media persons at Chandigarh Press Club,

“We have a list of 56 assembly constituencies where political leaders who joined AAP from parties like Congress and Akali Dal were given tickets in just 1-2 days of their joining at the cost of dedicated party workers who have given their blood and sweat to the party. That money power is ruling the roost in ticket distribution is clear from the example of Mohali where a realtor was given the ticket after he switched over to AAP why were hard-working party workers ignored in Mohali and other places?” Said Pannu.

Pannu was accompanied by Sheera Bhanboura, Vice President (Youth), AAP, Punjab, and Morha Singh Anjaan, Founder Member, AAP, Punjab. The AAP Youth leaders said that Kejriwal and people like Raghav Chadha were using AAP as their fiefdom.

“Arvind Kejriwal and Raghav Chadha are out to ruin AAP in Punjab. Tickets are being given to people not committed to the party’s ideology. Those who uphold the principle of the party are being denied tickets. Anyone can buy the AAP ticket in Punjab if he or she has the paying capacity Dedicated party workers are being taken for a ride.
