Jolt to Congress in Chandigarh as hundreds of leaders, volunteers join AAP

Jolt to Congress in Chandigarh as hundreds of leaders, volunteers join AAP

Chandigarh, Aug 18 (UNI) Former mayor Pradeep Chhabra, who recently joined AAP and Chander Mukhi Sharma, party in-charge for the Chandigarh Municipal Corporation elections wiped out the Congress in the capital by getting various office-bearers and hundreds of volunteers to join the Arvind Kejriwal-led party.
This is considered a major setback for the Chandigarh Congress ahead of the municipal elections. The Congress leaders and volunteers were formally welcomed by AAP’s Chandigarh affairs in-charge and MLA Jarnail Singh, party’s Chandigarh president Prem Garg, Punjab MLA Kulwant Singh Pandori and general secretary Harchand Singh Barsat at the party headquarters here on Wednesday.

Welcoming the Congress leaders on the occasion, Jarnail Singh said, “After Delhi, the Congress is zero in Chandigarh.” He said the people across the country were joining the AAP due to the pro-people policies and social reform activities of AAP National Convener and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.
AAP Chandigarh leader and former mayor Pradeep Chhabra said, “In the Chandigarh Municipal Corporation elections, the Congress and the BJP will be completely wiped out and Chandigarh will be made Congress and BJP free.”
Criticizing the Congress party, he said the Chandigarh Congress had become a party of corrupt people. “Hardworking workers and leaders are not valued in the Congress; there is just a private company of a family, which is why the Chandigarh leaders are resigning from the Congress party,” he added.
