Two-time MP Sher Singh Ghubaya quits SAD
Chandigarh: Two-time Member of Parliament from Ferozepur and rebel SAD leader Sher Singh Ghubaya Monday resigned from the primary membership of the Akali Dal even as the party expelled him for "anti-party activities".
Ghubaya in a press briefing held at Jalalabad in Punjab's Ferozepur district announced quitting the Shiromani Akali Dal and blamed its chief Sukhbir Singh Badal's "wrong policies" for resigning from the primary membership and all posts of the party.
In a letter written to Badal, Ghubaya appealed to him to accept his resignation.
Later, the Akali Dal issued a press note here in Chandigarh through which Badal expelled Ghubaya from the primary membership of the party for his "anti-party activities".
Ghubaya is a two-time MP from Ferozepur parliamentary seat -- first in 2009 and then in 2014.
His relations with Akali Dal had allegedly turned sour after his purported video clip appeared before the 2017 assembly elections. In December 2016, the vigilance bureau under previous SAD-BJP regime had raided private engineering college owned by his family over complaints of embezzlement.
