Waraich has resigned from the primary membership of the party, expressing displeasure over the process of Sangrur MP Bhagwant Mann's appointment as the new state unit chief.

Ghuggi, who was recently replaced by party leader Bhagwant Mann as the State convener, said he had resigned as the AAP had ditched its ideals.

Reacting to the appointment of Bhagwant Mann as state convener, Gurpreet Ghuggi said that at least the party could have told him to resign over telephone.

Hitting back at Ghuggi, the newly appointed chief of the AAP's state unit said, "He was made the party's state convener within two months of joining". Announcing his resignation at a press conference, Mr Ghuggi said the party has deviated from its principles.

A former SAD leader, Sandhu made this announcement after AAP sacked him on Wednesday for his alleged anti-party activities.

"Not only after the disintegration of the state unit, but even during the elections a number of leaders were in touch with us after the AAP's bubble burst, particularly when AAP leaders faced allegations of rape, exploitation of women and cash for tickets".

Allegri said after beating Monaco . "He's scored an important goal for us, he's playing for Juve and we're all happy". Napoli moved two points clear of Roma , who slipped into third, ahead of their match with AC Milan on Sunday.

"Today, he says, HS Phoolka or Sukhpal Khaira should have been made the state unit chief instead of me".

Meanwhile, Kejriwal is reportedly finding hard to explain the source of party funding. This is not the same party I had joined. He too was allegedly upset over Mr. Mann's appointment to the top post in the State. "They call this election process, this is not election process it is a farce", Ghuggi said.

"I think with election conducted with pick and choose policy, injustice has been done to Punjab and Punjabiyat", Ghuggi said adding that the volunteers were not involved. He said he didn't have any position in AAP but was a volunteer.

"But one person is facing a personal problem..." The resignation of Khaira was in protest for Mann's selection.

But this decision has also come with a warning issued by Arvind Kejriwal to the MP Bhagwant Mann to quit his consistent alcohol consumption habits or he will remove him from the post. "His resignation is a direct result of the moral degradation of the AAP", SAD secretary general Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa said.
