New Delhi : Aam Aadmi Party on Saturday suspended Sandeep Kumar who was sacked from the post of Women and Child Development Minister by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal over an “offensive” CD in which he was appeared in a objectionable position with a lady.
The suspension of his membership of the party comes about four days after the decision to expel the 36-year-old priest was taken at an high level meeting attended by top AAP pioneers.
“The party is taking action. What Kumar has done is completely wrong and he has been suspended from primary membership of the party. Disciplinary committee has been handed over the matter and whatever its decision, the party will abide by it,” Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said.
Asked about party leader Ashutosh’s tweets defending Kumar, he said, “These are his personal views but the party is clear. In AAP, any charges on character, corruption and crime wouldn’t be tolerated. If there are such charges against me, same action will be taken as has been taken against Kumar,” he said.
