Lt Gen (Retd) H S Panag, the father of actor Gul Panag, has joined the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP). He says he will contribute towards raising the issues concerning national security as well as those pertaining to defence personnel.

Panag, who recently completed his tenure as an administrative member of the Armed Forces Tribunal, finds the members of the AAP to be “nice, polite and humble”.

“I cannot sit in an armchair and keep criticising political parties or only write about shortcomings in the system. I felt it was time to make a difference. Of all the political parties, this is the best for my kind of personality. Despite their shortcomings, the party is on a learning curve. It is a movement that has been launched,” he said. “Their leaders are nice, polite and humble people.”

Panag, who is based in Panchkula, asserted that he was not at all interested in contesting the election or applying for the ticket. He said he hoped to raise issues pertaining to the defence personnel, both serving and retired, as well as advise the party on issues of national security.

Maintaining that the AAP was attracting the lower middle class as well as the intelligentsia, he said that the party was in the process of formulating its views on different policy matters.

Lt Gen Panag is among a host of well-known people who have joined the party. Earlier, Savita Bhatti, wife of the late actor Jaspal Bhatti, had joined the AAP. So had Nirmal Kaur, wife of veteran athlete Milkha Singh. Several former bureaucrats, industrialists and traders have also taken the AAP membership.

In fact, more than 200 people have applied for the AAP ticket for the Chandigarh Lok Sabha seat. At present, the process of scrutinising the applications is on.

    Breaking news: Aish's second baby to be fathered by Amitji himself.Let me congratulate you on what you are about to read is an exclusive stuff and no news channel has access to it.Thanks guys for the roaring response to my post on Asaram bapu fathering Aishwarya's baby. Now I will reveal the reason why Aishwarya aunty is moving out of Bachhchan 's jalsa.The main reason she is moving out of Bacchan's home is that Jaya Bhabhi is insisting on 2nd Bacchhan gchild to be fathered by Amitji himself.Aish is not ready for this as she wants to move ahead in her cting career and and she is willing to trade her tight rocking body with top producers and directors in exchange of meaty roles in films.Recently she was sptted coming out of Mumbai's Leelawati hospital where she underwent vRS (l reconstruction surgery).Bihari wardboys leaked this information to Marathi media.The reason as revealed by a maid in Jalsa is that Jaya bhabhi wanted Amitji to father Aishwarya's second baby as Abhishek has erectile dysfunctioning problem and he is not an accomplished actor like Amitji. Jaya Bhabhi who spent one colourful night with trusted lieutenant Amar Singh at his residence was suggested by him that Bachchan progeny should be talented like Amitji and the only way to do it is by making Amitji impregnate Aish with his sperms.Amitji who is 65 years old now no longer suffers erec tion so Jaya Bhabhi suggested him to take Vi agra tablet in the night. Aish who was spying on jaya's next move came to know about this and decided to move out of jalsa.More details awaited.
