AAP expels two leaders for fraud

New Delhi, March 21: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Friday expelled two leaders as they allegedly tried to provide party tickets for monetary consideration.

AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal appealed to ticket seekers that they should not give money to any party member who has assured them of providing tickets.

“Two members, Aruna Singh (convener of Awadh zone) and Ashok Kumar (treasurer, Hardoi) have been suspended from the party membership as they were found to be indulging in providing party tickets on the pretext of money (sic),” Kejriwal told mediapersons.

The AAP leader also appealed to the media to inform the party about any such activity and conduct sting operations.

Kejriwal said action was taken on the basis of proper evidences against the two. If anyone is found indulging in such activities, that person will be suspended within a day.

He told IANS he would be visiting Uttar Pradesh’s Varanasi March 25-26. He would ask people there about his candidature against Bharatiya Janata Party’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi from the same seat for the Lok Sabha elections.

He also said that after Varanasi, he would focus on Delhi and conduct road shows in all the seven constituencies of the national capital.
