Local Sikh hardliner leader jathedar Jagjeet Singh Gaba joined the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Tuesday evening along with his supporters in the presence of AAP convener Sucha Singh Chhotepur and the party’s Jalandhar Lok Sabha observer Rajiv Chaudhary.
At present, Gaba is president of Gurdwara Dukhniwaran ‘Naumi Patshahi’ in Guru Teg Bahadur Nagar. He has remained associated with the Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) for the past many decades.
AAP leaders welcomed Gaba and his supporters and hoped that his entry would strengthen the party in the state.
Gaba actively participated in the protests held by Sikh organisations against sacrilege incidents during the last year.
