Rebel AAP MLAs meet Rahul Gandhi in Delhi, merge Punjab Ekta Party; Sukhpal Khaira targets Kejriwal

New Delhi, June 17, 2021 (Yes Punjab News)
The three rebel MLAs of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) who formed Punjab Ekta Party, on Thursday, met Rahul Gandhi in Delhi and announced the the merger of their outfit ‘Punjab Ekta Party’ with the Congress.

The MLAs who met Rahul Gandhi include former Leader of Opposition (Punjab) Sardar Sukhpal Singh Khaira (MLA, Bholath); Sardar Jagdev Singh (MLA, Maur); and Pirmal Singh (MLA, Bhadaur).

The merger is seen as a shot in the arm of Punjab chief minister Amarinder Singh who is at the target of Navjot Singh Sidhu led the camp in the state.

Amarinder Singh, ahead of his meeting with the party high command in New Delhi on June 3, had inducted three AAP rebel legislators — Sukhpal Khaira, Pirmal Singh, and Jagdev Singh Kamalu — into the party. The chief minister before leaving for Delhi had welcomed these three MLAs into the party fold.

Slamming AAP Convener and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for indulging in ‘self-goals’ every now and then, Khaira said the Delhi CM never cared to review the decisions.

Claiming that NRIs supported AAP during 2017 elections morally and financially but the money thus collected never reached Punjab leaders, Khaira said no one knows where those funds vanished.

Firebrand Khaira, once the hard critique of Amarinder Singh, had quit the Congress and joined the AAP in December 2015. He was elected from the Bholath assembly seat in 2017.

However, Khaira, a former leader of opposition in Punjab Assembly resigned from the primary membership of the AAP in January 2019 and had also floated his own outfit, the Punjabi Ekta Party. The other two MLAs, Kamalu and Dhaula, are first-timers.
