Chhotepur remained non-committal over his joining Navjot Singh Sidhu’s newly launched Awaz-e-Punjab. “I will decide the future course of action after my statewide tour that will conclude on September 16,” he said.
Chhotepur alleged AAP convener Arvind Kejriwal had no respect for Punjab leaders and trusted only Durgesh Pathak, who was far junior to a large number of leaders in the state unit. He alleged that Kejriwal was an opportunist and had no moral values.
Earlier, he formed government in Delhi with his archrival Congress and now he had joined hands with former Congress leader Jagmeet Brar, he said.
Chhotepur claimed that Brar had approached him to get into AAP and that time Kejriwal had denied him the party membership.
When asked whether he was in touch with Awaz-e-Punjab leaders, Chhotepur said he and Pargat Singh had a casual conversation recently, but it had nothing to do with his joining their front.
