He further disclosed that Kejriwal asked that he should have admitted that the title was shown to him.
Chhotepur replied that he was Sikh and he would have been in trouble and he may face excommunication. Then Kejriwal said “Then what?” Which clearly indicates that the AAP leadership neither trusts Sikhs nor give heed to Sikh tradition. ”
On the issue of money, Chhotepur said that the AAP has no system in place about the expenditure. “The party never released any money for his expenditure. I am using my own money on party activities and was one the mercy of good Samaritan who have been paying for the fuel and other sundry expenses.
The party did not gave any fund from party and i have bear all the expenses from my resources Rs 20 lakh spent. Party refused giving any promised money to victims, I gave the money from my pocket. What Sucha Singh Chhotepur said:
He demanded CBI inquiry over the cash sting video.
Few of my rivals tried to implicate me in such activities.
It was a deep routed conspiracy planned by my rivals.

Kejriwal told me to leave Sikh religion.
on the other hand, The Aam Aadmi Party could today sack its Punjab chief Suchcha Singh Chhotepur, who has been accused of taking bribe for assigning constituencies to party candidates for the assembly elections to be held early next year.
Top leadership of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in Punjab demanded on Thursday that state unit convener Sucha Singh Chhotepur’s removal over media reports of his “accepting bribe”. In a letter addressed to national convener and Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal, 21 leaders — including MPs Bhagwant Mann and Sadhu Singh, and heads of various wings — have asked the AAP’s political affairs committee (PAC) to immediately replace Chhotepur with an “honest” man. The PAC is meeting on Friday evening.
The AAP has been contemplating action against Chhotepur for taking a packet of cash in a reported video sting operation carried out by a party supporter, though the letter does not expressly mention the video, which was the very starting point of the current crisis in the rookie party.
