Leaked Audio Clip of AAP MPs is ‘Edited’ : Sanjay Singh
A four-minute long audio clip of a telephonic conversation between Sangrur MP Bhagwant Mann and Patiala MP Dharamvir Gandhi has emerged on Sunday, in which the former has allegedly criticised the party high command for not allowing elected representatives to choose their own teams.
It is the timing of the audio’s coming into public domain that has embarrassed Mann, since he is on a statewide mission for the party. In the clip, the motor-mouth MP is targeting party leaders such as HS Phoolka, Sucha Singh Chhotepur and Harinder Singh Khalsa as well and is annoyed by the way the party’s central leadership functions.
“Had there been any AAP magic, Jyoti Mann (Jalandhar), Himmat Singh Shergill (Anandpur Sahib) and Phoolka (Ludhiana) would also have won (their Lok Sabha contests). It is not the AAP but my standing as a star artist, Dr Gandhi’s social work, and Sadhu Singh’s contribution to Malwa that have won,” Mann is heard before he instigates Dr Gandhi to join him in telling Kejriwal that “Punjab is not a Delhi where your experiments would work and where you could impose a leadership”.
