Chandigarh, April 25

AAP rebel MLA and Punjab Ekta Party leader Sukhpal Khaira on Thursday resigned from the state Assembly.

In the resignation letter sent to the Punjab Vidhan Sabha Speaker, Khaira said that he is of the firm  opinion that unless  the people of Punjab unite to liberate Punjab from the clutches of these alleged traditional corrupt and feudal leaders, there is no way Punjab can ever make tangible, fruitful  or  meaningful progress. 

"In order to make this goal a reality, I and other people have decided to contest the ensuing Lok Sabha elections to rid Punjab of these corrupt enemies."

He said that since he will be filing his nomination papers as candidate of PDA from the Bathinda Lok  Sabha seat tomorrow, he has decided to relinquish his Bholath seat as MLA, to uphold morality and  ethics in politics.  "Kindly accept  my resignation as  Bholath MLA without any further delay."

Khaira along with five other AAP MLAs had parted ways with AAP and formed Punjabi Ekta Party. The party is contesting elections as part of Punjab Democratic Alliance.
