Women Wing lashed with sticks in Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on protesting against Unethical Distribution of Tickets

The terror of such hooliganism has escalated to such a level that these women have stopped strolling on the streets

New Delhi, March 23, 2017: Suman Kaushik, President of AAP Women Wing from Vikas Puri Vidhan Sabha (Assembly) has submitted a complaint to Delhi Police against AAP MLAs Naresh Balyan and Mahender Yadav. The incident took place on March 21, 2016, at Aryan Garden, Om Vihar in New Delhi.

Kaushik along with other AAP volunteers posed a question to Mahendra Yadav, Vikaspuri MLA regarding the unethical distribution of tickets in the upcoming MCD election. 50 percent seats in Delhi are reserved for women for the upcoming MCD elections. AAP leaders had been stating internally as to the media that they will give tickets to deserving women volunteers only and not to the dummy candidates. But in reality, this has not been the case.

Likewise, it was also proliferated by Vikaspuri MLA among the Women Wing that there shall be no ticket given to the dummy volunteers.

According to Suman Kaushik, in her ward, a dummy candidate was given the ticket as it is women reserved seat and the grassroots AAP women volunteers including her were being ignored.

So, Kaushik went along with Raghuvir Singh Prajapati, Jugnu Prajapati, Dimple Farhad and Jasbir to meet Mahender Yadav at Aryan Garden. But instead of a peaceful hearing, the women and other volunteers were assaulted according to Ms Kaushik- right after she voiced out on the prevalent issue, the hues of the peaceful gathering changed and women of Mahila Wing were seen paralysed with malevolence and beaten with sticks.

Newsgram reached to Suman Kaushik, who took a fearless stance in front of these nefarious minds to know the depth of the matter.


“MLA, Naresh Balyan called us Sluts (Randi)”, said Suman Kaushik.  Further, she says, “the party is oppressed with plunders and hooligans- not only did they called us with names but also physically abused us, she further added.

Hooliganism is not a rare sight when it comes to politics but what’s unusual is the manhandling of women shamelessly in front of the public from a party that vouches for clean politics. To exhibit a blatant truth, these women were the grassroots volunteers of Aam Aadmi Party who rendered everything to nurture the party. However, such is the cynicism of Aam Aadmi Party to belittle these volunteers with hands and sticks.

In the aftermath of the lewd conflict, the women assembled and departed to the local Police Station in the vicinity to lodge FIR, nevertheless, the hapless volunteers were shunned there too.

“When we reached the Police station, there was no one who could listen to our woes. Kushan Pal, the SHO of Uttamnagar Police station didn’t pick my call despite him being familiar with my work in past. He picks my call every time but didn’t pick yesterday”, told Suman Kaushik to Newsgram.

The terror of such hooliganism has escalated to such a level that these women have stopped strolling on the streets.

“I don’t feel safe here, and anything can happen with me in the future. If such incidents can take place in the middle of a huge number of people, what security does we women have now alone?” says Suman.

Workers of Aam Aadmi Party joined in the pursuit to attain the commonness amongst the people but sadly, the party has failed to meet its own agendas in the meantime. While empowering women has always been the elevated issue for the nation, parties like these are only ruining the future of women by such malpractices.

Newsgram contacted Naresh Balyan, MLA of Uttamnagar with regard to the incident. He denied the accusations calling them fallacious.

Sukhpal Singh Khaira’s Exit Raises Questions Over AAP’s Future in Punjab

Though the damage done by the party to itself in the last three years will be known after the forthcoming parliamentary elections, it will be a sad day for people in Punjab who saw AAP as a third viable option but were let down by the party itself

The recent exit of politically outspoken leader Sukhpal Singh Khaira from the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) fold in Punjab, at a time when general elections are around the corner, has raised a question mark over the party’s political future in the state.

It is not that Khaira, who was elected on the AAP ticket in the February 2017 assembly polls, was indispensable for the party in Punjab.

His exit, however, has shown that the AAP central leadership in Delhi continues to be unaffected by the self-created crisis in the Punjab unit that began in August 2016.

Khaira, who was suspended from the AAP along with another legislator, Kanwar Sandhu, in November 2018 for “anti-party activities”, last week floated a new party – Punjabi Ekta Party (PEP) – and has given enough indications of splitting the AAP down the middle.

Six AAP legislators in the state were present at the launch of the new party even though they did not share the stage with Khaira.

The AAP’s Punjab unit is in complete disarray – be it the leadership crisis, lack of political direction or agenda or the complete disillusionment of its cadre.

It’s not the first time that the AAP central leadership has committed political harakiri with the Punjab unit. It has become clear now that the AAP central leadership, instead of letting the Punjab unit take on the ruling Congress and the SAD-BJP alliance, ends up shooting itself in the foot every time.

Khaira was earlier unceremoniously removed as Leader of Opposition (LoP) by the AAP central leadership in July 2018. He openly rebelled against the party high command by dissolving the the AAP’s Punjab organisational structure and seeking complete autonomy for the state unit.

The AAP ousted its then Punjab unit chief, Sucha Singh Chhotepur, on flimsy bribery charges in August 2016, just months ahead of the assembly polls.

Chhotepur, who nurtured the party right from the day of its conception in Punjab, was shown the door after the emergence of a video clip in which an AAP worker was shown giving money to him. Even before this, Chhotepur was being sidelined in Punjab affairs with Delhi leaders like Sanjay Singh and Durgesh Pathak calling all the shots.

As the Chhotepur episode unfolded, AAP leaders at the constituency and district level rebelled. Chhotepur, who accused the AAP central leadership of corruption in allotting tickets for various assembly seats, finally exited the party and formed a new political outfit – the Apna Punjab Party (APP) that has practically remained a non-starter.

The AAP appointed actor-comedian Gurpreet Ghuggi, with no political experience, as its state convener in place of Chhotepur. Ghuggi left the party on a sour note just months later.

Two AAP MPs from Punjab, Dharamvira Gandhi and Harinder Khalsa, were suspended in August 2015 for questioning the AAP’s leadership style.

Gandhi, a cardiologist and known social worker, is the MP from Patiala constituency, while Khalsa, a former diplomat, represents Fatehgarh Sahib in the Lok Sabha. Gandhi was also unceremoniously removed from the post of leader of AAP in the Lok Sabha.

The AAP, which was completely rejected elsewhere in the country in the April-May 2014 general elections, won four Lok Sabha seats from Punjab – Sangrur, Patiala, Faridkot and Fatehgarh Sahib.

The AAP started the year 2016 on an upswing. Poll surveys and the party’s own political calculations gave it anything from 75 to over 100 seats in the 117-member assembly.

The party, however, finished second and managed to end up as the main opposition party with 20 legislators. One legislator, lawyer-activist H.S. Phoolka, resigned from the assembly seat recently and even quit the AAP.

With Khaira’s exit, his status as a legislator and the future of the six legislators who seem to be in his camp, will be seen in the coming months.

The party, which is the newest entrant on Punjab political scene – dominated largely by the ruling Shiromani Akali Dal and the Congress over the decades – is facing as much a challenge from its implosion.

Though the damage done by the party to itself in the last three years will be known after the forthcoming parliamentary elections, it will be a sad day for people in Punjab who saw AAP as a third viable option but were let down by the party itself. (IANS)
