AAP MLAs tell Sisodia to replace Bhagwant
Chandigarh: Several MLAs of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) have asked party’s Punjab affairs incharge Manish Sisodia to remove Bhagwant Mann from the post of state convener. The demand was put forward during Sisodia’s recent visit to Jalandhar.
Party sources said Sisodia had met all MLAs individually on February 4, during which he had sought their response on the state of affairs in the party unit. At least four MLAs confirmed to The Tribune that they individually raised the issue of removal of Bhagwant Mann with Sisodia.
The sources said a majority of the MLAs conveyed to Sisodia that the immediate step to be taken was to remove Mann from the post of state convener.
One of the MLAs, wishing not to be named, said Sisodia was told that under Mann’s leadership, the organisation structure at the grass-roots level had become non-existent. “Most of us agree that Mann is not accessible even to the party MLAs,” said a legislator from Malwa.
After getting the feedback, the sources said, Sisodia asked the MLAs about the suitable leader who could replace Mann.
