New Delhi: The Aam Aadmi Party on Sunday appointed actor and comedian Gurpreet Singh Ghuggi as Punjab unit convener.

He has replaced Sucha Singh Chotepur, who was removed from the post for allegedly taking bribe from a party volunteer.

“I will take over the reins of the party in Punjab. I will talk to good people who may be upset with the party. The corrupt and ineffective people will be thrown out,” said Ghuggi.

Ghuggi shot to fame after participating in ‘The Great Indian Laughter Challenge,’ comedy-based reality show. He has also acted in films like ‘Namastey London’, ‘’Humko Deewana Kar Gaye and ‘Singh Is King’.
