New Delhi [India], Aug. 26 (ANI): After a sting video that allegedly showed Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Punjab convener Sucha Singh Chottepur accepting money, the party's Political Affairs Committee (PAC) is likely to meet at Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's residence on Friday to take a final call on his removal.

AAP national convener and the party's Punjab affairs in-charge Kejriwal has apparently refused to meet Chottepur and asked him to file his clarification before the party's Punjab state committee. Sources said the Punjab State Committee has written to Kejriwal recommending Chottepur's removal.

However, Chottepur, in a tweet, said he had expressed reservations on the last two lists of AAP candidates announced for the upcoming assembly elections in Punjab and wanted to meet Kejriwal in this regard.

"Have reservations on second AAP candidate list too, waiting to meet Kejriwal," he tweeted.

Later, in a statement issued yesterday, he said he would be holding a press conference today to reveal the truth before the people of Punjab.

"I have been working day and night to strengthen this party, but some of my party colleagues are trying to tarnish my image by levelling false and baseless allegations. I will be holding a press conference in this connection to bring out the truth before the people of Punjab," he said.

Chottepur had earlier dared the AAP leadership to make a video clip of him accepting money to prove that it was corruption. (ANI)
