Former BJP leader Navjot Singh Sidhu, Olympian and Akali MLA Pargat Singh and independent lawmakers from Ludhiana, Balwinder Singh Bains and Simarjit Singh Bains, have announced a fourth political front to contest Punjab Assembly elections of 2017.
Earlier, it was considered certain that Pargat would be joining the AAP after attending the Punjab assembly session slated to begin on September 8.
However, the recent turmoil in the AAP following the removal of its state convener Sucha Singh Chottepur led Pargat to take the initiative to launch a new front.
“This is just the beginning. We have discussed the strategy on how to go ahead. Many other credible faces are in touch with us,” Pargat added.
