AAP replaced me as it wanted rich candidate: Ranjodh Sran

Press Trust of India  |  Chandigarh 

A day after dropped him from Dharamkot seat in Moga, Ranjodh Singh Sran today attacked the party, alleging that it wanted to replace him with a "rich" candidate and rejected AAP's allegation that his campaign was "listless".

He also hit out at party's MP Bhagwant Mann for allegedly "engineering" his replacement with his "close friend" Daljit Singh Sadarpura.



"The party replaced me as it wanted to nominate a rich candidate," alleged Sran who joined in 2013.

A doctor by profession, Sran said he was not informed by any party leader about his replacement. "I came to know about it through my volunteers," he said.

He claimed that he had worked a lot in Dharamkot Assembly constituency and could have won the seat.

"I have already covered 55 villages out of 151 and listened to the problems of farmers in 25 grain markets," he said, adding, "My campaign was not poor or listless as described by the party".

He accused MP Bhagwant Mann of adjusting his close friend Daljit Singh Sadarpura on this seat. "Everybody knows that Sadarpura does not belong to this constituency. He is an outsider," Sran claimed.

When asked whether he would take up the matter with party's national convenor, Sran said, "Arvind Kejriwal knows everything."

He, however, said he would meet his volunteers tomorrow before taking any decision on his future course of action.

He said if the party thought that his campaigning was poor and weak, then it should have provided support by mobilsing more volunteers to boost his campaign.

49-year-old Sran, who has been running his hospital at Dharamkot and holding free medical camps, said when the party had announced to replace him with another candidate then it should refund the expenses incurred by him on the campaigning.

Yesterday, had announced replacement of Sran with Sadarpura, who is a progressive dairy farmer, saying his election campaign was poor and declining.

Notably, the party had earlier replaced Vinod Kumar, candidate from Bhoa constituency, with Amarjit Singh. Vinod had alleged that party's Punjab in-charge Sanjay Singh demanded Rs 1 crore as party fund, a charge denied by him.

Sanjay had claimed that Vinod was not "working hard" and his campaign was going on a slow pace which was why he was replaced.
