In another jolt to Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in Punjab, its Jaito MLA Master Baldev Singh resigned from the party citing “autocratic functioning”, “double standards” and giving up the party’s basic ideology and principles.
Master Baldev singh is the second MLA after Sukhpal Singh Khaira who has resigned from the AAP. Sukhpal Singh Khaira had submitted his resignation from the party last week.
Launching a scathing attack on Delhi Chief Minister and AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal, Master Baldev singh called him “anti-Dalit”. “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 wrote in his resignation letter.
Earlier, citing the “dictatorial attitude” of AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal, MLA Sukhpal Singh Khaira had on January 6 resigned from the party’s primary membership.
Lawyer-activist H.S. Phoolka had also recently quit from the AAP’s primary membership. He had earlier resigned from the Punjab Assembly. He was the AAP legislator from the Dakha Assembly seat.
