Satirist Gurpreet Ghuggi AAP's new Punjab convener

New Delhi: The AAP's political affairs committee on Sunday appointed satirist and actor Gurpreet Singh Ghuggi as its Punjab unit convener in place of Sucha Singh Chhotepur, who was removed recently from the post on corruption charges.

Chhotepur was sacked after a video clip showed him allegedly accepting money from a party volunteer in exchange of poll tickets, following which action was taken against him on August 26. 

Ghuggi, who joined the Aam Aadmi Party in February this year, will take charge soon, a party release said.
