Rebel MLAs of Aam Aadmi Party meet Rahul Gandhi in Delhi

New Delhi| Three rebel MLAs of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), which formed the Punjab Ekta Party, met Rahul Gandhi in Delhi on Thursday and announced the merger of their outfit with the Congress. The MLAs who met Rahul Gandhi included former Leader of Opposition (Punjab) Sardar Sukhpal Singh Khaira (MLA, Bholath), Sardar Jagdev Singh (MLA, Maur) and Piermal Singh (MLA, Bhadaur).

Ahead of a meeting with the party high command in New Delhi on June 3, Amarinder Singh had inducted three rebel AAP MLAs Sukhpal Khaira, Piermal Singh and Jagdev Singh Kamlu into the party.

Before leaving for Delhi, the Chief Minister had welcomed these three MLAs into the party.

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

However, Khaira, the former Leader of Opposition in the Punjab Assembly, resigned from the primary membership of AAP in January 2019 and floated his own party, the Punjabi Ekta Party. The other two MLAs Kamlu and Dhaula have become MLAs for the first time.
