Mohali, January 16

The Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) today expelled Kulwant Singh, former Mohali Mayor, from the party for breaching its discipline.

SAD president and former Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal today expelled Kulwant Singh from the party for opposing party candidates fielded from 28 wards for the Mohali Municipal Corporation elections.

Second time

  • This is the second time in five years that Kulwant Singh has been expelled from the party. Earlier, he was expelled from the party in 2015.

Senior party leader Dr Daljit Singh Cheema said on the basis of the report received from District Observer Prof Prem Singh Chandumajra, action had been taken against Kulwant Singh for breaching the party’s discipline. He said party discipline would not be allowed to be breached at any cost.

This is the second time in five years that Kulwant Singh has been expelled from the party. Earlier, he was expelled from the party in 2015.

Kulwant Singh had unsuccessfully contested the Lok Sabha elections from Fatehgarh Sahib on the SAD ticket. After this, he parted ways with the party after the SAD fielded Balwant Singh Ramoowalia for the Mayor’s post. Kulwant Singh had won the MC elections as an Independent candidate and became the Mayor in 2015. However, he again joined the SAD.

On being ignored by the SAD while finalising candidates for the forthcoming Mohali MC elections, Kulwant Singh, a SAD loyalist, has turned rebel and decided to contest the elections independently. Kulwant, who owns a real estate business, is planning to field his own team of Independents candidates.

Kulwant Singh, while talking to Chandigarh Tribune, said action taken by the SAD supremo was on expected lines. He was ready to contest the elections as an Independent candidate. He would hold a meeting with his supporters on Monday and announce the names of candidates.
