AAP’s senior leader and Leader of Opposition (LoP) in the Punjab Assembly, Harpal Singh Cheema, Dinesh Chadha and Malvinder Singh Kang, formally inducted and welcomed the leaders and union leaders at the party headquarters here on Monday.
Welcoming the leaders who joined the AAP, Harpal Singh Cheema said that the people from all walks of life in Punjab were joining the AAP as they were impressed by the pro-people policies of the Aam Aadmi Party and the work of the Arvind Kejriwal government in Delhi. He said that Ranjit Singh and his son Harjinder Singh, the head of a prominent Congress family and former Sarpanch of Tharu village in Tarn Taran district had joined the Aam Aadmi Party along with their associates.

The AAP leader said that Bikramjit Singh Saini from Khadoor village in Ludhiana district was a popular leader of ambulance personnel. On the occasion, Jathedar Harjit Singh said that the Akali Dal was now pursuing anti-Punjab and genocidal policies; due to which he decided to leave the Akali Dal and join the Aam Aadmi Party.
