The family of late Jathedar Gurcharan Singh Tohra on Saturday rejoined the Shiromani Akali Dal in the presence of party president Sukhbir Badal. 

Bibi Kuldeep Kaur, daughter of GS Tohra, had fought the Punjab Assembly elections on AAP ticket in 2017.

Sukhbir said the Tohra family joining SAD is a big day for the party.

Bibi Kuldeep Kaur, her husband Harmel Singh Tohra and her son Harinder Singh Tohra rejoined the SAD without any pre-conditions.

Accusing the AAP of ignoring the family, especially after the 2017 state Assembly poll, Harmel Tohra said their family had always contributed to the SAD and would now work to strengthen it in the LS poll.

Meanwhile, former District Youth Congress president Sharanjeet Singh Jogipur, who had joined AAP in 2017, came to SAD fold in the presence of senior Akali leaders.
