Sukhpal Singh Khaira resigns from AAP's primary membership

Sukhpal Singh Khaira, MLA from rebel Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Sunday resigned from the party's primary membership. In his resignation, Khaira alleged the party had "totally deviated" from the ideology and principles on which it was formed post the Anna Hazare movement.

Khaira was suspended from the party in November last year for indulging in "anti-party" activities and sent his resignation letter to AAP's national convener and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

The "current political culture of traditional parties of the country stands badly decayed, due to which immense hope was generated by the formation of AAP," the Bolath MLA said in his resignation letter, copies of which have been released to the media.

“Unfortunately, after joining the party I realised that the hierarchy of AAP was no different from the traditional centralised political parties," Khaira said.

He had been a vocal critic of AAP's leadership since he was removed as leader of opposition in Punjab Assembly in July last year.

Khaira, along with seven supporters had formed a rebel group which sought autonomy for AAP's Punjab unit following his removal.
