Shiromani Akali Dal President and Punjab Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal inducting Former Nabha MLA Ramesh Singla into party fold at Chandigarh on Tuesday.

Chandigarh, December 2, 2014: Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee General Secretary and former MLA from Nabha Ramesh Singla today joined the Shiromani Akali Dal in the presence of Party President and Punjab Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal here today.
While inducting Singla into the party fold at a simple function at his residence, the SAD President said the very fact that a popular and grass root leader like Singla was joining the SAD was proof that the Congress was on its death bed in Punjab. “This is not all”, Badal said adding more Congress leaders would join the SAD in the coming days. He said Congress leaders were leaving their parent party in droves because they no longer had faith in its leaders and also wanted to do something for the people whom they represented. “All Congress men now realise this is possible by following the footsteps of chief minister Parkash Singh Badal and participating in the pro development movement launched by the SAD-BJP combine”. Badal assured that all Congress leaders joining the SAD would be accorded due status and respect in the party fold.
Meanwhile, Singla said he did not see any political future for the Congress in Punjab as its leaders were devoid of any vision. He said he has been a Kabaddi fan and promoting this rural game since two decades but no party and political personality gave the due recognition to this game except Punjab Deputy CM Sukhbir Singh Badal. He said the initiatives taken by chief minister Parkash Singh Badal and Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal had convinced him to join the SAD unconditionally. He said he along with his supporters would leave no stone unturned for the success of the party candidate to be fielded by the party in Nabha constituency. Singla has also served as President Punjab Youth Congress and president municipal committee Nabha.
Prominent amongst those present on the occasion included Avtar Singh Brar chairman PRTC, Jeet Mohinder Singh Sidhu MLA, Bibi Kuldeep Kaur Tohra member SGPC, Parmjit Singh Sidhwan political secretary to Deputy CM, Jathedar Kartar Singh Alohran senior vice president SAD Patiala Rural, Jaspal Juneja president SAD Nabha circle, Amit Garg Nabha and other senior leaders of Party.
