Ludhiana (Punjab) [India], Sept. 3 (ANI): Coming down heavily on sacked Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) minister Sandeep Kumar over the sex CD row, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Saturday dubbed all ministers of the Arvind Kejriwal-led party as 'senseless, thoughtless and headless'.

"All the AAP leaders are headless, thoughtless and senseless. Today he (Sandeep Kumar) proved himself to be senseless in front of the media. Today the media saw the reality that all the AAP leaders are baseless and senseless. He should get punishment for his deed," BJP leader Vijay Sampla told ANI.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal earlier on Wednesday announced the decision to sack Kumar after receiving an objectionable CD.

Adding that the AAP stood for "propriety in public life", Kejriwal said that Kumar was being sacked with immediate effect.

Kejriwal attempted to downplay the matter by claiming that the AAP, which is the nation's biggest hope, does not spare will-ful wrongdoers.

The AAP convenor said that he would prefer to forfeit his party but never tolerate corruption and wrongful activities, as the AAP does not believe in hiding flaws of its members.

Commenting on Kumar's "misdeeds", Kejriwal said that his former Cabinet colleague has betrayed the party and the people of Delhi.

Kejriwal said that Sandeep Kumar was a "rotten fish" which was immediately removed after its illness came to light.

Kumar, however, denied the allegations on Thursday claiming the video was fabricated and said he was being targeted because he is a Dalit.

"I come from a poor family. The poor are always trapped. Every time we rise, there are conspiracies to crush us. I am being targeted because I have set up a statue of Babasaheb Ambedkar in my house. I am ready for every agni-pariksha (trial by fire)," said the 34-year-old MLA who was elected from Sultanpur Majra.

To determine the authenticity of the CD, the Delhi Police's Crime Branch has initiated an investigation. (ANI)
