PUNJAB

Jaitu MLA Baldev Singh resigns from the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP).Baldev Singh is the second AAP MLA in Punjab to have resigned from the party.He is a close aide of Sukhpal Singh Khaira, who recently floated the Punjabi Ekta Party.

In his resignation letter to party chief Arvind Kejriwal, he 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 said: “I was deeply motivated and moved by the anti-corruption movement launched by Anna Hazare and thus decided to become part of AAP. In order to improve the socio-political situation of our country, particularly of our state Punjab, I went to the extent of quitting my government job as Head Teacher, although I had more than four years of service left. This step of mine not only created panic in my family, but also left my future unsure, yet I preferred to take a risk merely due to the lofty promises made by you and the AAP.”
