Chandigarh 10th May:- Former convenor of AAP's Punjab unit Gurpreet Singh Waraich'Ghuggi' on Wednesday resigned from the primary membership of the party, expressing displeasure over the process of Sangrur MP Bhagwant Mann's appointment as the new state unit chief.
Gurpreet Singh 'Ghuggi' said the entire election process of appointing the new state chief was "fake and unfair", adding that the party adopted a "pick and choose policy" while inviting members for the election to the post.
He said that he is resigning from the primary membership with a heavy heart. For Punjab, Punjabiyat whatever needs to be done, he will do that, but this party has deviated from its principles and it has become difficult for me to continue with this party.
Gurpreet Ghuggi said that former Congress MLA Sukhpal Khaira was a better choice, others could have been Phoolka, Dharamvira Gandhi. He added that Kejriwal didn't like his resentment against him when he had asked him to thank NRIs for their support.
The resignation came two days after the party appointed Bhagwant Mann as the new state chief of AAP at a meeting held in Delhi.
Gurpreet Ghuggi had then also questioned the "urgency" of the party leadership in appointing Mann and had asked under "what pressure" was the decision taken.
Gurpreet Waraich was made the state convenor in September 2016, replacing Sucha Singh Chhotepur who was sacked from the post on the charge of allegedly accepting money from a party volunteer.
