Chandigarh: In a major set back to the ruling Shiromani Akali Dal (Badal) Davinder Singh Ghubaya, son of party’s sitting MP Sher Singh Ghubaya from Ferozepur, joined the Punjab Congress unconditionally, along with his uncle and supporters at New Delhi.
According to the evening press note released by Congress Davinder, 25, and his uncle Munsha Ghubaya (brother of Ferozepur MP Sher Singh Ghubaya) joined the Congress, along with Rajat Nehra, Pt Anand Sharma and Rajinder Kaur, in the presence of Punjab Congress president Captain Amarinder Singh in New Delhi.
It is widely discussed that Shiromani Akali Dal (Badal) President and deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Badal and sitting MP from Ferozpur Sher Singh Ghubaya are not at good terms and does not see eye to eye.
As reported by Hindustan Times (HT) the alleged humiliation rendered to Sher Singh Ghubaya, by deputy chief minister Sukhbir Badal for whom Ghubaya had vacated his seat (Jalalabad) for Sukhbir to ensure his maiden entry into the state assembly in 2009, is being speculated as a major reason for the shift of support towards the Congress party.
