New Delhi: One of the most popular faces of AAP's Punjab unit Bhagwant Mann has hit back at Gurpreet Singh 'Ghuggi' for questioning the process of appointment of the former as the chief of the party's Punjab unit asking him whether the procedure was right when he was made the party's state convener.

Ghuggi, the ex-convener of the AAP's Punjab unit on Wednesday resigned from the party's primary membership and termed the process under which Mann was appointed the party's state chief a "farce".

Hitting back at Ghuggi, the newly appointed chief of the AAP's Punjab unit said, reported news agency PTI, "He was made the party's state convener within two months of joining. At that time, selection process was right? Now he raises question about it" and added "I did not expect him to raise question about the selection process when the party has given him so much".

"Today, he says, H S Phoolka or Sukhpal Khaira should have been made the state unit chief instead of me. When he was made the state convener of the AAP, then why did he not propose the names of Phoolka or Khaira. Why he is raising this issue now," he asked, reported PTI.

On Wednesday, taking a dig at the alleged drinking habit of Mann, Ghuggi had said if the party really wanted to give him the responsibility of the state unit, then it could have waited for at least three months to ensure that he quits alcohol.
