Big blow to AAP, PEP as prominent leaders join Congress in presence of Capt Amarinder

Chandigarh, April 19, 2019 (Yes Punjab News)

Delivering a major blow to the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and its Sukhpal Singh Khaira led splinter group of Punjabi Ekta Party (PEP) in Sangrur Lok Sabha constituency, several prominent leaders of the two parties joined the Punjab Congress, along with their supporters, in the presence of Captain Amarinder Singh here on Friday afternoon.

Their joining has given a big boost to the Congress in Sangrur parliamentary constituency, with the party candidate from the seat, Kewal Singh Dhillon, instrumental in these leaders leaving AAP and PEP to throw their weight behind the Congress. Kewal Dhillon’s son and Congress leader Karan Dhillon, Congress leader was also present on the occasion of their joining.

Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh said this mass exodus into the Congress showed across-the-board disillusionment of the people of Punjab with the various opposition parties, which were completely bereft of any constructive agenda or programme for the state’s development to offer.

Welcoming the newcomers into the party fold, Captain Amarinder said all like-minded individuals, who believed in the welfare of the nation and were opposed to the negative policies of other parties, were making a beeline for the Congress, which was the only party at the national and state level to deliver on its promises.

Those who joined the Congress today included PEP Distt. Barnala President Kala Dhillon, PEP State executive member Surat Bajwa, AAP Malwa Zone general secretary S. Harvinder Sekhon, Aggarwal Sabha Sunam president & AAP leader Prem Gupta, along with Brick Kiln Association general secretary Bharat Bhushan Garg, vice president Rajiv Makhan, cashier Shubash Garg and its Lehra Block president Sandeep Garg.
