Chandigarh, Sep 16: Sucha Singh Chhotepur, who was sacked by AAP as its Punjab convenor over a purported sting video, today said he will approach former BJP Rajya Sabha MP Navjot Singh Sidhu and suspended AAP MP Dharamvira Gandhi to float a political party to a give the “best alternative” to the people of Punjab. “My supporters and volunteers have suggested that I set up a new political platform with those with a clean image and who are committed to saving Punjab,” he told PTI after concluding his ‘Punjab Parivartan Yatra’ at Faridkot district today. Chhotepur, who played a key role in building Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in Punjab, had launched the initiative on September 6 to collect suggestions of his supporters as regards his future course of action.
“I will meet (Navjot Singh) Sidhu, (Dharamvira) Gandhi and other like-minded people to bring them together and have one political party to provide the best alternative to the people of Punjab in the (2017) Assembly election,” he said. However, he said he was yet to meet Sidhu or Independent MLAs from Ludhiana, the Bains brothers. “But, I have met Pargat Singh once,” he said. “My efforts will be to bring all these people on one platform now,” Chhotepur said, adding that more like-minded people will be roped in to form a party as soon as possible. Recently, cricketer-turned-politician Sidhu, former captain of the Indian hockey team and MLA Pargat Singh and the Bains brothers — Simarjit Singh Bains and Balwinder Singh Bains — launched ‘Awaaz-e-Punjab’, a political front.
