Ludhiana (Punjab) [India], Sept. 7 (ANI): A day after Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Punjab observer Vijay Chauhan was accused of sexually exploiting his domestic help, Punjab Irrigation Minister and senior Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) leader Sharanjit Singh Dhillon on Wednesday alleged that AAP people are not ordinary, and you will come to know gradually that they have links with such an agency, which is working to disintegrate the country, while demanding immediate investigation into the matter.

"AAP is involved in many scandals, every morning people in Punjab wake up to new scandal indulging AAP. Aam Aadmi Party people are not ordinary people.

Gradually, you will find their links with an agency, which is working to disintegrate the country. That is why the AAP members make videos of Lok Sabha and try to leak secret information," he added.

"Last week, a Delhi AAP minister was booked for being involved in a sex scandal, and now a Punjab APP leader has also been accused of sex scandal. The party has been caught in one or the other thing;- one day, they are caught taking bribe, while the other day, its ministers were being accused of sex scandal," added the SAD leader.

Dhillon further said, "Some of the AAP leaders have been involved in provoking religious beliefs in Sis Ganj gurdwara, and after demolishing a 'piao' (drinking water) somewhere, they are seen comparing the Harmandar Sahib with a broom. Besides, they are saying the water in Punjab should be supplied to Haryana."

"We support the poor and women, and demand immediate investigation be initiated," he said.

Earlier, AAP MLA Devender Sehrawat alleged that some AAP leaders in Punjab were sexually exploiting women.

AAP Barnala youth circle wing president Ravinder Singh Dhillon, grievances committee in-charge Ishar Singh Fauji and volunteer Makhan Singh Namol released an audio clip on Tuesday in which a ticket aspirant from Dhuri, Rajwant Singh Ghulli, was purportedly trying to convince a woman not to lodge rape charges against Chauhan.

In the clip, the woman was purportedly heard alleging that her "honour was compromised" and a male voice (allegedly of Ghulli) was telling her "not to spoil his chances." The volunteers alleged that the woman was later "paid off and sent to Amritsar." (ANI)
