Lawmaker Bhagwant Mann has hit back at Gurpreet Singh Waraich "Ghuggi", who questioned his appointment as chief of the party's Punjab unit and also took several digs at his drinking before quitting the party yesterday.
Ghuggi had contested the February-March assembly elections in Punjab from Batala seat, but stood third.
Without naming Kejriwal, Waraich said that the AAP leadership's problems with him had begun when he told them during the election campaign that that there have been have been major complaints against the observers sent from Delhi and they should be recalled.
The former State convener said he resigned in protest against the unfair method of selection of the new State unit convener and blamed Kejriwal for ignoring the opinion of party workers while terming the procedure as arbitrary.
Meanwhile, the AAP on Wednesday expelled its senior leader from Amritsar Upkar Singh Sandhu over alleged anti-party activities.

Sandhu said that AAP high command should consider appointing MLA Sukhpal Singh Khaira as party's state chief.
Meanwhile, Kejriwal is reportedly finding hard to explain the source of party funding.
"Even today, I am ready to perform the job of pasting the party's posters on walls", he said. "They call this election process, this is not election process it is a farce", Ghuggi said. "Earlier you imposed a team of outsiders... who were accused of selling party tickets and indulging in acts of moral turpitude", Dhindsa said. "I held three rallies for him in his constituency", he said, adding, "In organisations, positions keep changing".
Waraich has also refused AAP's offer to be a member of party's Political Affairs Committee (PAC).
Ghuggi said that Mann had worked very hard for the party.
"Ghuggi is right in pointing out that Kejriwal could have given Mann three months to reform himself and cure himself of his drinking habits. I can't work under the leadership of a person who has been appointed (by party convener Arvind Kejriwal) on the condition that he will not drink (alcohol)". "His resignation is a direct result of the moral degradation of the AAP", SAD secretary general Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa said.
