Jasraj had in the past accused Mann of having sabotaged his election campaign in 2014. He had gone on record saying that Mann deliberately did not allow AAP convenor and Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal to campaign for him in Bathinda.
Speaking to The Indian Express here today, Khaira said that Shergill was keeping AAP afloat financially in Punjab and there was no chance that his ticket would be cancelled in favour of Bir Devinder Singh, the SAD (Taksali) candidate.
Khaira ruled out the possibility of the Aam Admi Party joining the PDA. “AAP wanted an alliance with PEP and LIP and hence it did not work out. I don’t think, they will be joining this alliance in near future,” he said.
Khaira, who has not resigned as an MLA, had earlier attacked party supremo Arvind Kejriwal, alleging that his "dictatorial" attitude had shattered the dreams of Indians and the Punjabis for a clean alternative to the decayed and rotten system.
Says not resigning from his Assembly seat yet. In a letter addressed to Arvind Kejriwal, national convenor of AAP and Delhi Chief Minister, Khaira accused him of dictatorial attitude and political opportunism by hobnobbing with the Congress.
Khaira, who was suspended from AAP for alleged “anti-party activities” and for “continuously attacking central and state leadership” in November last year, is expected to launch his new political party Punjab Democratic Alliance on January 8 in Chandigarh.
BSP state president Rashpal Raju said the weaker sections and Dalits are being exploited through petty welfare schemes of Atta-Dal, meagre pensions etc, while they are being denied their right of quality education, healthcare, affordable housing and employment.
