Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Punjab got a big boost when the famous political figure ‘Kohli family’ of Patiala left Shiromani Akali Dal Badal and joined AAP. The Kohli family has been active in the politics of Patiala and Punjab for a long time. This family has lived from the mayor of Patiala to a minister in the Punjab government. Ajitpal Singh Kohli, son of Kohli family and former mayor of Patiala, joined the Aam Aadmi Party in Chandigarh on Thursday.
AAP Punjab President and MP Bhagwant Mann formally welcomed Ajitpal Singh Kohli into the party. Mann expressed the hope that with Kohli joining the AAP, the party would be much stronger in Patiala and adjoining districts.
On this occasion, Ajitpal Singh Kohli said that his father Surjit Singh Kohli and grandfather Sardar Singh Kohli have served the cult and Punjab. His father and grandfather were also the city council president, MLA and minister of Patiala city. Ajitpal Singh Kohli said that Shiromani Akali Dal Badal is no longer the same. Akali Dal Badal has no good intention and policy for the youth. At the same time, Arvind Kejriwal has become a role model for the youth of Punjab today. This is the reason why he has decided to leave Akali Dal and join Aam Aadmi Party.
