AAP’s Punjab unit set for vertical split

NEW DELHI || With hardly eight months to go for assembly polls in Punjab, the Aam Aadmi Party appears all set for a vertical split in its ranks as two of its prominent MPs out of a total four – all from Punjab – are likely to resign their Lok Sabha seats and join a new political outfit to be floated, a news agency reported.

kejriApart from MPs Harinder Singh Khalsa and Dharamvira Gandhi, senior party leaders — and party star performers in the 2014 Lok Sabha polls — like Harvinder Singh Phoolka, Daljeet Singh and Jasraj Longia — popularly known as Jassi Jasraj — were also tipped to join the yet-unborn political grouping in Punjab, an AAP source was quoted as saying by the news agency.
