The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has appointed former MLA Sukhpal Singh Khaira as its spokesperson for Punjab. Khaira, who left the Congress recently to join the AAP, has been vehemently opposing the policies of the Badal government. His appointment has been approved by party convener Arvind Kejriwal.
Meanwhile, the AAP youth wing of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) will launch a comprehensive public awareness movement, ‘Nava Punjab March’, to be undertaken from March 25 to April 5. The march that will begin from Fatehgarh Sahib and conclude at Hussainiwala in Ferozepur will cover around 280 km and cross 120 villages on the way.
AAP youth wing Punjab president Harjot Singh Bains, at a press conference here on Saturday, said the march would highlight the miseries being faced by the people of Punjab. He said the situation of peasantry, education, health, law and order and industry had gone from bad to worse in the past nine years of the SAD-BJP rule.
