The exodus of Akali leaders into the Punjab Congress continued on Monday with four key party leaders, including SAD Ludhiana zila parishad  ex-vice chairman Advocate Bhalinder Singh Bhandal, pledging their allegiance to Captain Amarinder Singh.Considered an Akali heavyweight, Bhandal was welcomed into the Punjab Congress fold by party president Captain Amarinder Singh in Khanna.Earlier, in Chandigarh, Dinesh Dhall, former councillor and ex-district president of Shiromani Akali Dal, joined the Punjab Congress in Captain Amarinder’s presence, along with Amit Dhall, councillor, and Navdeep Mohan, general secretary of SAD Doaba Zone.The Akali leaders said the Badals’ anti-people and dictatorial policies were making them feel suffocated in the SAD and they decided to quit the party in favour of Punjab Congress.They extended their unconditional support to Captain Amarinder, expressing full faith in his leadership, saying he alone could bring the state and its people out of the depths of despair into which the corrupt and greedy Badals had plunged it.
