Ferozepur/Chandigarh, January 17
Former Aam Aadmi Party leader Ashu Banger quit his party to join the Congress on Monday.
Banger, AAP’s candidate from Ferozepur Rural, will now contest the Punjab Assembly election from the same seat but as a Congress candidate.
The current Congress Member of Legislative Assembly from Ferozepur is Satkar Kaur.
Channi accused the Aam Aadmi Party, one of the Congress’s chief rivals in the state, of “defaming” the farmers' movement.
“Instead of asking farmers about its funds' collection during the farmers’ agitation, AAP should make its list of NRI donations for the 2O17 assembly elections public,” he said.
Punjab will vote in the third phase of assembly elections on February 20. It was previously scheduled to vote in the second phase on February 14.
