Faridkot/Chandigarh: Another Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) legislator from Punjab, Master Baldev Singh today resigned from the primary membership of the party, citing “autocratic functioning”, “double standards” and giving up the party’s basic ideology and principles.
Master Baldev Singh, who is the sitting AAP legislator from the Jaito assembly seat, sent his resignation to AAP national convener Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday.
“I am pained to forward my resignation from the primary membership of AAP because the party has completely given up its basic ideology and principles,” he wrote in his resignation letter.
Earlier citing the “dictatorial attitude” of AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal, Bholath MLA Sukhpal Singh Khaira had on January 6 resigned from the party’s primary membership.
Lawyer turned politician H S Phoolka had also recently quit from the AAP’s primary membership. He had earlier resigned from the Punjab Assembly. He was the AAP legislator from the Dakha Assembly seat.
There are reports in media that Master Baldev Singh could contest Lok Sabha election from Faridkot Lok Sabha seat on the ticket of Punjabi Ekta Party, a new political front floated by Aam Aadmi Party rebels led by Sukhpal Singh Khaira.
