Chandigarh, August 9, 2019 (Yes Punjab News)
Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Punjab chief and Member of Parliamentarian (MP) Bhagwant Mann, while reacting to the acceptance of the resignation of AAP MLA from Dakha, Harvinder Singh Phoolka, Advocate, said that it was his personal decision while the party was never in agreement with the said decision. He expressed his deep concern for the people of the constituency who were jiggered at the sudden develoment.

In a statement issued from the party headquarters on Friday, Mann said that the people of Dakha constituency, who had reposed their abiding faith in the AAP and Phoolka, were left in a quandary, saying that resigning as a member of legislative assembly was a disgrace to the democratic values, besides being gross injustice to the people who had pinned high hopes on the elected representative like Phoolka.

He said Phoolka, who commanded immense respect in the party, was picked to lead the Opposition Party in Punjab Vihan Sabha by Party’s National Convener and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

Bhagwant Mann accused the government and the speaker of adopting double-standards in terms of accepting resignations of AAP MLAs, adding that Speaker Rana KP had not been performing his constitutional obligations with the way he should. Mann added that if Speaker had not been adopting double standards, he would have simultaneously accepted the resignations of Mansa MLA Nazar Singh Manshahiya and Ropar MLA Amarjit Singh Sandoa as he did in the case of Phoolka.

Taking a snipe at the government and the speaker, Mann further said that no action was initiated against Bolath MLA Sukhpal Singh Khaira, the MLA from Khulna, and Jaito MLA Baldev Singh, the MLA from Jaito, who had not only ditched the party but had also cheated on the people of their respective constituencies and stitched loyalties to the Congress party and the Badals for their petty political ends, stating that the party had sought action against Khaira, but lamented that no action had been taken in the matter while they were pocketing their salaries, vehicles, security and other political and financial benefits.

He alleged that they were being given indirect benefits by nominating them to various committees.
