THE APPOINTMENT of a new Punjab convener of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has been delayed after a meeting of its Political Affairs Committee (PAC) scheduled Friday to decide the fate of Sucha Singh Chhotepur, who was removed from the post recently, has been postponed in the wake of an alleged sex scandal involving Delhi MLA Sandeep Kumar.

Sources said the decision on Chhotepur may be deferred for four days as party chief and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is set to leave for Vatican City to participate in the canonisation of Mother Teresa scheduled for September 4. He will return on September 6.

A senior AAP leader said the party might take a call on Chhotepur in Kejriwal’s absence as verbal directives could be taken on the phone.

“But as of now, we cannot say anything,” said the leader.As many as six zonal in-charges of 13 in the state had urged AAP to reinstate Chhotepur.

Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leaders, however, said that the “ultimatum” did not have any impact on the decision making of the party.

The party brass have been trying to placate Chhotepur to set aside any differences and work together for the party.

Chhotepur has neither accepted the offer of the party to reinstate him honorably nor has he resigned from AAP.
Several leaders of the party are of the view that if expelled, Chhotepur may project himself as a “martyr” and gain sympathy from volunteers.
