Sukhpal Singh Khaira AAP rebel MLA from Bholath and former Leader of Opposition who had resigned from AAP today announced to form a new political party-Punjabi Ekta Party(PEP).
It is second political party came into existence in Punjab in the last one month. Earlier, rebel Shiromani Akali Dal(SAD) leaders led by Member Rajya Sabha Ranjit Singh Brahmpura had formed Shiromani Akali Dal(Taksali) and challenged the authority of former Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal and SAD president Sukhbir Singh Badal. They also alleged that Badal family was working as dictator and there is no internal democracy in SAD.
Khaira was suspended from AAP in November last after he challenged Arvind Kejriwal’s decision to remove him from the post of Leader of Opposition. Kanwar Sandhu Kharar NLA was also suspended by the party. Kanwar Sandhu said that they would not resign from Vidhan Sabha because it would result in bye-election and put an um-necessary burden of state exchequer.
AAP has 20 MLAs in the 117 member Vidhan Sabha. Another MLA H.S.Phoolka had resigned from his Dakha serat and his resignation is also pending with the speaker. If rebel MLAs submit their resignations, the AAP would loose the post of Leader of Opposition, presently held by AAP MLA Harpal Singh Cheema.
