Sukhpal Singh Khaira withdraws his resignation as MLA

Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) rebel MLA Sukhpal Singh Khaira on Tuesday withdrew his resignation from the Punjab Vidhan Sabha.

Khaira, a former leader of the Opposition, had unsuccessfully contested the Lok Sabha elections in May as a Punjabi Ekta Party candidate from Bathinda. He floated his regional party in January this year.

Last week, another rebel Baldev Singh, who also had contested the general elections as a Punjabi Ekta Party, was back into the AAP fold.

Khaira resigned from the primary membership of the AAP in January this year and floated his regional party.

Khaira was suspended from the AAP in November 2018 for breaching party discipline and indulging in anti-party activities.
