Muktsar, July 23

Senior Congress leader from Lambi Gurmeet Singh Khudian on Friday left the Congress.

He said, "We were feeling ignored for long, thus took the step. Even Capt Amarinder Singh after contesting the Assembly election from Lambi in 2017 did not visit the place even once. Nobody heard our issues."

Gurmeet, son of former MP Jagdev Singh Khudian, said he would contest the coming Assembly election.

Khudian was earlier president of District Congress Committee, Muktsar, for five years. He was the covering candidate for Capt Amarinder Singh in 2017 from Lambi Assembly segment. He had joined the Congress in 2004.

Khudian claimed that some other Congress leaders had also left the Congress.
