Moga (Punjab): The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) gained strength in Punjab when former Nagar Council president, Balwant Singh Dhillon joined the party in the presence of AAP state president and MP Bhagwant Mann in Moga district on Sunday.
Balwant Singh Dhillon is the former president of Nagar Council, Zira (2003-2013) and member of Sukhmani Sewa Society, an NGO in Zira and Sewa Bharti Association (Zira, Makhu and Mallawala). Dhillon’s brother Gurcharan Singh was also the vice-president of Nagar Council, Zira in 1997 and other brother Piara Singh was the president of Nagar Council, Zira from 2015 to 2017.
Welcoming him into the party, Bhagwant Mann said that today the people see AAP as the only credible alternative that can change politics in the state and make the lives of the people better, similar to the change brought about in Delhi by AAP’s national convener and CM Arvind Kejriwal. He said that the people of Majha were shifting in favour of the party.
Mann said that the AAP will experience a wave of support in the upcoming 2022 elections in Punjab as a massive number of people were committing to working for the party.
“The people have been suffering from the repeated mis-governance of the Congress and the Akalis. Wanting to be part of the change themselves, people are joining the AAP to support and bring them to power in the upcoming 2022 elections,” he added.
