Akali Dal, AAP leaders join Congress in Punjab

By Ians

Chandigarh, Dec 26: A day after outspoken Congress leader Sukhpal Khaira joined the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in Punjab, the opposition Congress said leaders of the ruling Shiromani Akali Dal and AAP have joined its fold.

Punjab Congress president Amarinder Singh announced that 34 members of the Akali Dal from Suman and 21 leaders of the AAP from Sangrur district have joined the party.


Those who joined included former SGPC (Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee) member Inder Mohan Singh.

Interacting with the media here, Amarinder Singh apologised that senior Congress leader and former MP Jagmeet Brar was not invited to address a big rally that the Congress party organised in Bathinda earlier this month.

"I apologise to him for this," Amarinder said, with Brar seated next to him at the press conference.

Amarinder said the exit of Khaira from the Congress would not affect the Congress in Punjab.
