The Aam Aadmi Party has been facing the ire of its own rebels and failed to reach out to the masses. The factionalism in the party has been increasing day by day in Punjab. The workers and volunteers of AAP have been turning against the party because of the dictatorial attitude of Sanjay Singh and Durgesh Pathak.
When the party had released its list of the candidates in different phases, the party workers and volunteers raised objection over few names. They demanded the removal of candidates having criminal background. Even they raised their voice against the new comers who got ticket for the polls.
In Zira, the party workers and volunteers have given ultimatum to Arvind Kejriwal to recall Sanjay Singh and Durgesh Pathak to Delhi. Dr Harinder Singh, an AAP worker told that the both leaders interfere in the party matters. Moreover, they showed their reluctance to hear any suggestion or advice from the party workers and volunteers. They demanded that the 53 candidates out of 93 should be changed.
Dr Harinder Singh said that the party has ignored its hard workers and allocated tickets to the tainted candidates. The party workers from different district have quit the party and joined other parties. Since the victory on four Lok Sabha seats in Punjab, the Delhi AAP leaders hijacked the Punjab unit.
As resentment, so many party leaders, worker and volunteers said good bye to AAP. The suspended parliamentarians Dharamvir Gandhi and Harinder Khalsa formed their own outfit. Yongendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan come out with Swaraj India and Sucha Singh Chhotepur formed Aapna Punjab Party.
It seems the AAP Punjab has to face its own rebel groups rather than facing the other political outfits in the Punjab polls.
