Bittu was appointed President of Block Congress committee, Khadoor Sahib in 1998.

He remained sarpanch of Gram Sabha Khawaspur from year 2002 to 2007 and Block Samiti member from year 2008 to 2013.

Welcoming Bittu and Gulshan into the party fold, Ghuggi said, "The people are fed up with the traditional political parties and were joining AAP to weed out corruption, unemployment, drug menace and other problems from Punjab."
