Jalandhar, May 15: Senior vice-president of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Sukhdev Singh Bhaur on Sunday said that AAP MP Bhagwant Mann’s appointment as state party chief showed that Delhi-based party leaders had not learnt any lessons from the defeat in the state. They were continuing with the same non-serious approach they had before the polls, said AAP Punjab VP.
“Party chief Arvind Kejriwal apparently did not trust Punjab leaders and left everything in the hands of his subordinates from Delhi. This has led to frittering away of a great opportunity of a change in the state when there was lot of scope for it,” said Bhaur, who is earlier SGPC general secretary.
“Mann does not have the image of a serious leader as compared to Captain Amarinder Singh or Parkash Singh Badal. A leader of big stature should have been appointed to the post for acceptability among people and cadres,” he argued.
“If they had handled the issue properly, the situation would not have arisen for Gurpreet Singh Waraich to resign. His removal has once again affirmed the impression of use and throw as earlier they removed Sucha Singh Chhottepur,” said Bhaur, who had remained a dissenting voice in SGPC and resigned from the SAD after Bargari sacrilege and firing incident.
