The Shiromani Akali Dal took a strong decision to expel Mr. Balwinder Singh Bains the party candidate from Ludhiana south constituency and his brother Mr. Simarjit Singh Bains from the primary membership of the party.
This decision was taken by the SAD President Mr. Sukhbir Singh Badal in consultation with the disciplinary committee Chairman Mr. Ranjit Singh Brahmpura and its members S. Sukhdev Singh dhindsa, Jathedar Tota Singh, S. Gurdev Singh Badal and Mr. Balwinder Singh Bhunder today evening.
It may be recalled that Mr. Simarjit Singh Bains has declared himself as an independent candidate against the party nominee Mr. Heera Singh Gabria in Atam Nagar constituency from Ludhiana. Mr. Sukhbir Singh Badal had summoned both the Bains brothers and warned them to withdraw Atam Nagar constituency which they failed to do till today. Taking serious note of this act of indiscipline the party President discussed the issue in detail with the party disciplinary committee and on the recommendation of the latter the SAD Chief expelled both Bains brothers from the party.
In a statement released from party head office party Secretary and Spokesman Dr. Daljit Singh Cheema informed that the party ticket given to Mr. Balwinder Singh Bains from Ludhiana South assembly constituency stands withdrawn and party will soon announce a new candidate in near future.
