21 AAP leaders from Punjab, including MPs Bhagwant Mann and Sadhu Singh, have shot off a letter to party convenor and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal asking him to immediately sack Chhotepur from the party.

"We are upset and disappointed to see reports in regard to acceptance of bribe by Chhotepur," they said in the missive."Our party's principles of zero tolerance towards corruption must be followed and such a corrupt person (referring to Chhotepur) must be immediately removed," they said while asking Kejriwal to replace Chhotepur with an honest person.

Before his suspension from the party, Chhotepur held a press conference and alleged that his own friends have conspired against him. He also said that he will not quit the party and attacked Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia.

Chhotepur is in the eye of storm after a video clip surfaced allegedly showing him taking money in a purported sting operation, which has been seen by Kejriwal earlier this month.

Meanwhile, AAP termed as "false, baseless and a conspiracy" the "rumours" in a section of social media that the party has made a "black list" of some of its senior leaders to put them on backburner.
