Akali Dal MLA resigns

JALANDHAR: Shiromani Akali Dal MLA Jagbir Singh Brar resigned from the Punjab Assembly on Friday expressing solidarity with the expelled party leader Manpreet Singh Badal and questioning the leadership of Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal.

Mr. Brar, who was elected MLA from Jalandhar Cantonment on Akali Dal ticket, said “I have resigned in support of People's Party of Punjab president Manpreet Singh Badal. I could not fulfil the promises made to the people of my constituency and that is one of the reasons for my resignation.”“I will fax my resignation letter to the Punjab Vidhan Sabha Speaker,” Mr. Brar added.

Asked whether he had also resigned from the primary membership of the akali Dal, he said, “I have not resigned from the party yet but very soon I will be writing a letter to Sukhbir Singh Badal in this regard.” Asked about the reason for his resignation, Mr. Brar said “there are two reasons for my step: first is that I am joining People's Party of Punjab led by Manpreet and the second is Sukhbir Singh Badal.” - PTI
