The Aam Aadmi Party on Sunday expelled its founding member Ashwini Upadhyay over his repeated involvement in the anti-party activities. He also failed to respond to the show cause notice served to him.
Meanwhile, Upadhyay has denied report of his suspension. “I have not been given a notice; nobody from the party has called me. I have not been expelled. This is a lie,” he said.
Upadhyay had turned rebel after being denied ticket for the Lok Sabha polls. Earlier, he had protested outside AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal’s residence alleging lack of transparency in ticket distribution in the party. He had also called Kejriwal ‘a liar’.
Upadhyay was a member of the party’s screening team for the Delhi Assembly polls.
