The Aam Admi Party (AAP) on Saturday suspended Patiala MP Dharamvira Gandhi and Fatehgarh Sahib MP Harinder Singh Khalsa for anti-party activities.
Punjab AAP convener Sucha Singh Chhotepur said that the instruction for action against Gandhi and Khalsa came from AAP national convener and Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejirwal.
“Both MPs held a parallel rally at Baba Bakala near Amritsar today despite our requests that this would amount to anti-party activity. Besides, they have been openly critical of both the central and state leaderships for quite some time despite being told to refrain from doing so. The central leadership has issued a show-cause notice to both of them to explain why strict disciplinary action should not be taken against them for openly going against the party leadership,” Chhotepur said.
