Reacting to Sidhu’s resignation, Khaira said Capt Amarinder Singh had targeted Navjot Sidhu because of his truthful outburst at Bathinda during the Lok Sabha polls exposing the “friendly match” between Capt and the Badal families.
Addressing a press conference here in Chandigarh Wednesday, Khaira said he had visited the Harike Headworks a couple of days ago and found that approximately 15,000-20,000 cusecs of river water were being diverted to Pakistan daily.
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.
