Aam Aadmi Party’s convener in Punjab, Sucha Singh Chotepur, who is facing the accusation of taking money for issuing tickets, on Friday said that he is ready for the CBI probe against him.

According to the reports, Chotepur was allegedly caught accepting bribes in a sting operation, which was later shown to party convenor Arvind Kejriwal upon his return from Himachal Pradesh.

Sucha Singh organised a press conference to clarify his stand on the sting.

  The controversy surrounding Chhotepur comes as set back for AAP as the party is trying tooth and nail for the upcoming Assembly elections in the state. Chhotepur is a senior leader in Punjab and considered as a pioneer in creating a base for AAP in the state.
