No doubt in the leadership of Kejriwal: Mann

Calling himself has the trusted soldier of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), party leader Bhagwant Mann today said he has no doubts about the leadership of Delhi Chief Minister and AAP National Convenor Arvind Kejriwal.

He also said that he would continue to work under him.

Reacting to an audio clip, purportedly a telephonic conversation between suspended AAP's Patiala MP Dharamavira Gandhi and Sangrur MP Bhagwant Mann, criticising the party's top leadership, which has surfaced in the social media, Mr Mann said in that tape, ''We two MPs were talking that if there is groupism in Punjab, then we should tell about it to the party's leadership in Delhi.''

''I am AAP's trusted soldier and nowhere in the audio tape the name of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has been taken,'' Mr Mann told reporters.

The AAP leader said he has no doubts about Mr Kejriwal's leadership, was working as a loyal soldier of the party and would continue to do so. Asked whether he has given any explanation to the AAP on the issue, Mr Mann said the party has not sought any clarification from him.

Reacting to questions about an audio clip which has surfaced in the social media, indicating that Mr Mann was unhappy with the party central leadership's handling of the Punjab, AAP leader Sanjay Singh said both Mr Mann and Mr Gandhi, who is under suspension, have denied that they issued the audio clip.

Last Month, Aam Aadmi Party had suspended party Mr Gandhi and Mr Harinder Singh Khalsa from the primary membership of the party for "anti-party activities".
