Controversy Human Trafficking allegations:
The Aam Aadmi Party handed Balkar Sidhu the ticket to contest the 2014 Talwandi Sabo by-poll; however, he was kicked out of the AAP after it was claimed that he was involved in Human trafficking, a charge he refuted completely. However, he was replaced by a local professor named Baljinder Kaur. During an interview, he talked about allegations made against him for human trafficking and being dismissed from the Aam Aadmi Party and claimed that all the allegations against him were baseless. He said,

At the time of the by-polls, various false charges had been levelled against me but the AAP failed to prove any charge later on. Now, I will seek a reply from them by filing a case in the court for defaming me.After Punjabi comedian-turned-politician Bhagwant Mann joined AAP and later become MP from Sangrur, several actors in the state connected with the party and thought it was sincere and committed to clean the system. However, as time passed, people realised AAP is not what it used to be. They just made big promises to garner votes. They have no policy, no agenda, no programme for the people."
