New Delhi: The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Monday suspended Delhi legislator Devinder Sehrawat from the party for “anti-party activities”.

“The disciplinary committee of AAP’s Delhi unit has decided to suspend Devinder Sehrawat from the primary membership of the party,” said an AAP leader.

Sehrawat, who represents Bijwasan, was suspended for “anti-party activities,” the leader added.

Sehrawat, a retired colonel, had written to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on September 4, alleging that women were being exploited in Punjab in return for election tickets.

“I saw disturbing reports about women being exploited in Punjab in return for ticket. The MLAs of Delhi are unaware about what is being done by party representatives in Punjab. Now the situation is getting indefensible and disgraceful. Action needs to be taken to remove rotten elements,” he had said.

In another letter he wrote to the Delhi chief minister, he alleged that Kejriwal, despite being “well aware” of a Supreme Court order that held appointments of Sonia Gandhi and Jaya Bachchan illegal, appointed the MLAs as parliamentary secretaries.
