A rebel group of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) led by Manjit Singh Randhawa on Saturday extended support to Sucha Singh Chhotepur and accused Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal of indulging in dictatorial behaviour.
The group also said it rejects the list of the candidates announced by the AAP for the upcoming Punjab assembly elections.
Talking to media persons in Amritsar, Randhawa, who was earlier a member of the AAP's Political Review Committee, said they have already formed their own party named 'AAP Punjab' and extended support to Chhotepur, former AAP Convener.
Describing Chhotepur as an honest person, he said Kejriwal was not aware about the culture and geographical importance of Punjab.
Randhawa alleged that the AAP led by Kejriwal has now become the political outfit of conspirators and has only ulterior motive to grab power in Punjab at any cost.
He said 'AAP Punjab' will prepare a separate election manifesto for the forthcoming elections and will be announced in the coming days.
The rebel leader said it will be followed by announcing the name of candidates and Chhotepur will be the party's president" in Punjab.
