Chandigarh: The Shiromani Akali Dal (Badal) has welcomed Aam Aadmi Party MLA H S Phoolka’s announcement to quit the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), in case it joins hands with the Congress, whether in a direct or indirect manner.
In a statement issued from Chandigarh on Wednesday (July 25), former minister Bikram Singh Majithia said the ‘SAD (B) welcomed Mr Phoolka’s statement because the AAP leader had made it clear that he would not agree to any opportunistic alliance with the Congress, which was responsible for perpetrating genocide on the Sikh community in 1984, as well as attack on Shri Harmandir Sahib’.
”It takes guts to stand up to one’s principles in such a manner and by doing so, Mr Phoolka has shown the mirror to AAP and its opportunistic leaders in Delhi and Punjab, who are in the process of negotiating an alliance with the Congress,” he added.
Stating that H S Phoolka’s statement itself served to indict AAP, the SAD (B) leader said it was obvious that the former Leader of Opposition had come to know about the parleys being held by AAP leaders with the Congress and the fact that the Congress-AAP alliance was all but done.
”This is the only reason for him to come out with an unequivocal statement that he will quit AAP, once this is finalised,” Bikram Majithia added.
