In what could be termed as a major boost to AAP in Punjab and a blow to Manpreet Singh Badal led People's Party of Punjab, Bhagwant Mann, the stand-up-comedian turned politician and one of the major leaders clinging on to PPP till now is likely to quit the party and join Kejriwal led Aam Aadmi Party.
Sources in Delhi have confirmed the development. "Bhagwant Mann has been in constant touch AAP top brass thanks to his close rapport with fellow comedian and senior AAP leader Kumar Vishwas", a senior AAP leader said.
The source said, Bhagwant Mann is likely to be the face of AAP in Punjab and decision regarding inducting him in the party is likely to be announced Wednesday or by Thursday.
It is pertinent to mention here that Manpreet Badal, who was earlier keen to join hands with Congress in view of upcoming Lok Sabha polls, was later eager to ally with or merge PPP into AAP but the talks didn't materialise as the Punjab unit of AAP passed a resolution not only rejecting the idea to ally with PPP but also the proposal to merge PPP in AAP.
Bhagwant Mann, the much celebrated Punjabi Comedian who had also forayed into Bollywood and had carved a niche in National Comedy Scene by being the favourite in some popular shows on National Channels , had in March, 2011 joined PPP and unsuccessfully fought February 2012 elections to Punjab Vidhan Sabha from Lehra constituency against former CM and Congress stalwart Rajinder Kaur Bhattal.
Since his joining, he has been the main speaker and star attraction at the programmes and rallies of People's Party of Punjab. He is at present considered number two in the hierarchy of PPP.
The source said that Bhagwant Mann was and is still keen to see an alliance or merger of PPP with AAP but the proposals were vehemently opposed by some AAP leaders from Punjab.
Bhagwant Mann's version:
Talking to your news-portal YesPunjab.com, Bhagwant Mann confirming his meetings with AAP leaders, said that no instatnts deductions should be made. He said that he has been constantly of the view that AAP and PPP should join hands as the approach and the agenda of the two matched. He said that AAP was a 'shubh sanket' in Indian politics and he desires that votes of saner people don't get divided. Asked about AAP Punjab unit's resolution against alliance with PPP and even the merger of PPP in AAP, Bhagwant said, he was not formally aware of any such resolution.
A political observer in Delhi privy to the development said, when the number two leader of a party fixes an appointment and meets a number one leader of another political party, the political class should excuse us for making certain deductions.
