HS Phoolka takes U-turn on resignation

Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Harvinder Singh Phoolka, on Thursday, took a U-turn on his threat to resign as MLA on September 16, if the Capt Amarinder Singh-led Congress government fails to act in sacrilege cases.Phoolka said he had deferred his resignation as the Punjab and Haryana high court has stayed the proceedings that the state government had initiated against three former cops, on the basis of recommendations made in the Ranjit Singh Commission report with regard to incidents of firing in 2015.
“The matter is before the high court now and the next date of hearing is September 20. I will decide my strategy on this issue thereafter,” Phoolka said, accusing the state government of not presenting the case before the court properly.
