It is another setback to the Aam Aadmi Party when senior leader Yamini Gomar resigned from the primary membership of the party. The move comes after national executive member Naveen Jairth and NRI fundraising coordinator Virinder Parihar expelled for the anti-party activities.
Now the party is finding itself in a crunch situation in Hoshiarpur as all three leaders belong to the jurisdiction. The leaders were opposing the candidature of Paramjit Singh Sachdeva from the district who was charged in a multi-crore land scam.
One of the founding members and a renowned Dalit face of the party, Gomar called the party anti-Sikh and anti-Dalit. She alleged that volunteers are being forced to serve as slaves. The party has become a private limited company of AAP Punjab affair in-charge Sanjay Singh and the party national organization head Durgesh Pathak.
The volunteers are never involved in the decision making process and corrupt leadership from Delhi captured the top slot. She accused that party has given tickets to outsiders and corrupt officials.
She further added that AAP supreme Kejriwal is fooling the people around that a Dalit would be made the deputy chief minister. Arvind refused to appoint MP Harinder Singh Khalsa as a leader of parliamentary group because he was both a Dalit and Sikh.
Earlier, former income tax chief commissioner LR Nayyar and AAP’s youth wing head Baljit Singh walked out from the party.
The high resentment witnessed in the party ever since the list of assembly seats was announced. All the hopes dashed to the grounds when party convener Arvind Kejriwal made no efforts to placate the disgruntled leaders.
