In a sudden move, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today sacked Social Welfare Minister Sandeep Kumar after receiving an ‘objectionable’ CD allegedly carrying details of some ‘wrongdoings’.

The decision to sack the minister was taken at a high-level meeting attended by top AAP leaders.

“Received ‘objectionable’ CD of minister Sandeep Kr. AAP stands for propriety in public life. That can’t be compromised. Removing him from Cabinet wid immediate effect,” Kejriwal tweeted announcing the decision.

Sources said the CD contained some wrongdoings by Kumar and Kejriwal did not approve of it.

Kumar represents Sultanpur Majra constituency. He is the second AAP minister to be sacked after Asim Ahmed Khan who was Minister for Food and Supplies.
