AAP suspends Punjab MPs Dharamvira Gandhi, Harinder Khalsa

New Delhi: The AAP on Saturday suspended party MPs Dharamavira Gandhi and Harinder Singh Khalsa from primary membership of the party and initiated disciplinary proceedings against them. The Aam Aadmi Party’s Political Affairs Committee (PAC) suspended the MPs and referred disciplinary proceedings against them to the National Disciplinary Action Committee, said party spokesperson Deepak Bajpai. Gandhi is MP from Punjab’s Patiala constituency whereas Khalsa represents Fatehgarh Sahib constituency in the state.

“In its meeting on Saturday, the PAC took cognizance of anti-party activities indulged in by Gandhi and Khalsa in Punjab. In a unanimous decision, the PAC suspended Khalsa and Gandhi from the party and referred their cases to the National Disciplinary Action Committee,” Bajpai said adding that all PAC members except Kumar Vishwas were present in the meeting. “Now the three-member NDAC, with Pankaj Gupta, Dilip Pandey and me as its members, will look into the complaints of indiscipline and anti-party activities against Gandhi and Khalsa,” he added. Bajpai charged Gandhi and Khalsa with involvement “in the activities of certain outfits, opposed to aims and objectives of the party”. “The only aim of these outfits is to damage the party and anti-corruption movement in the country,” he said, adding that there are several instances that show that Gandhi and Khalsa were trying to establish a parallel organization with the sole objective of damaging the party in Punjab.
