AAP Punjab should seek autonomy, says Phoolka


Before splitting up the leader of opposition in the state assembly Sukhpal Singh Khaira along with LIP leaders released a "chargesheet" against Amarinder Singh lead Congress government.

The AAP has justified the apology on the grounds that "the ongoing litigations are not helping, and the party will try and resolve all of them".

On LIP breaking ties with the AAP, Sandhu said, "They too are upset with Kejriwal's decision and said they can not support him anymore, but they have assured their continued support to the state unit to raise the issues concerning people of Punjab". One among these was whether we should split from the Delhi unit and form a separate unit or should we continue like this.

Sanjay Singh, who is MP of AAP said that people like Majithia should be sent to jail and commented over Kejriwal's apology saying that he has left many people "unhappy". The party's ally in Punjab, the Lok Insaf Party, has broken its ties with the AAP.

In a statement, which was also submitted to an Amritsar court hearing a defamation case against Kejriwal, the Aam Aadmi Party leader said: "In the past, I made certain statements against you regarding your alleged involvement in the drug trade".

Kejriwal also earned the wrath of the ruling Congress and SAD-BJP leaders, who accused him of being in the habit of making false allegations against his opponents to garner votes.

Man Utd boss Mourinho: The players must learn from Sevilla
A 2-1 defeat to Sevilla ended the Red Devils' involvement for 2017-18, with an ambitious side crashing out at the last-16 stage. Mourinho feels his current United side need to grow from these disappointing results if they really want to be on the top.

BJP has been raising the issue of delay in notifying these roads in response to AAP's charges that the BJP-led Centre is not in favour of bringing an ordinance to stop the sealing drive.

He also accused Kejriwal of hatching a conspiracy to mislead people by playing the emotional card of apology.

The Leader of Opposition, Vijender Gupta, blamed the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) of not introducing a bill to relieve traders from sealing.

Khaira said that he was getting numerous messages from volunteers and that he wanted to ensure them that whatever decision is taken, would be in the interest of Punjab.

Punjab cabinet minister Navjot Singh Sidhu said Kejriwal's apology amounted to "murder of AAP in Punjab". This shows that he has become weak and also raises questions on his talks with Akali Dal. AAP had made the allegations of drug peddling on Majithia as the focus of its campaign in last year's Punjab polls.

His remarks came soon after Sangrur MP Bhagwant Mann resigned as the AAP's Punjab chief and Aman Arora resigned as co-president.
