In the recent assembly elections in Punjab, the Congress won comfortably - winning 77 seats in the 117-member assembly.
The AAP, which contested the assembly polls for the first time and was expecting to do well, ended up with 20 seats in the assembly.
In the post-poll scenario, there was speculation that many AAP leaders were disgruntled with the AAP central leadership and wanyted to quit the party.
Even the AAP Punjab convenor during the assembly elections, comedian-actor Gurpreet Singh Waraich (Ghuggi), quit the party last week, accusing the AAP central leadership of undermining the leaders in the state.
