YAD Ludhiana district chief Gurdeep Gosha Gosha resigns, joins BJP

Gurdeep Gosha

Ludhiana, January 11

In a big jolt to the SAD and its youth wing, Youth Akali Dal (YAD), the district president of the YAD who was among the front-runners, Gurdeep Singh Gosha, today resigned from the party.

In a brief resignation letter, he said he was resigning from all posts of the party which he had been serving with all his might for several years. Choosing not to disclose the reason for quitting the party, he said he would spell out ‘reasons’ for his resignation at an ‘appropriate time’. He, however, added that he would continue to serve society as he had been doing in the past.

It was learnt that Gosha had joined the BJP in Delhi and it was speculated that he might be offered the Ludhiana South Assembly seat by the party leadership as the BJP was yet to announce its official candidates from six urban seats in Ludhiana.

Sources close to Gosha said he was a strong contender for the SAD ticket from the Ludhiana South segment but it had chosen former minister Hira Singh Gabria from the seat which had not gone down well with the YAD leader.

Known as a firebrand YAD leader, Gosha has been on the forefront in various protests and other party gatherings. Even yesterday, he had organised a function and had distributed sweets for granting bail to senior party leader Bikram Singh Majithia by the HC in a drug case.

Gosha had hogged limelight during the Covid-induced lockdown when he organised langars, distributed masks and food across the city, especially in areas inhabited by migrant workers. — OC
