Punjab: MLA Baldev Singh resigns from AAP

Punjab MLA Baldev Singh on Wednesday resigned from the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) citing autocratic style of functioning.

Baldev Singh, who is the sitting AAP legislator from the Jaito Assembly seat, is the second AAP MLA in Punjab to have resigned from the party.

Singh sent his resignation to AAP Chief Arvind Kejriwal.

In his resignation letter, Singh wrote, “I am pained to forward my resignation from the primary membership of AAP because the party has completely given up its basic ideology and principles.”

He further said that he was deeply motivated and moved by the anti-corruption movement launched by Anna Hazare and thus decided to become part of AAP. 

Earlier, Lawyer-activist H.S. Phoolka and Sukhpal Singh Khaira had resigned from the primary membership of AAP.
