 Chandigarh: The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has once again given a big jolt to the Punjab Congress. Since the implemented election code of conduct, two veteran leaders of Punjab Congress have joined the Aam Aadmi Party. On Tuesday, the Congress suffered a major setback when former minister and three-time MLA Jagmohan Singh Kang joined the Aam Aadmi Party. Along with him, his two sons Yadvinder Singh Kang alias Bani Kang and Amarinder Singh Kang also joined AAP. The three leaders joined AAP in the presence of AAP's national convener Arvind Kejriwal and Punjab affairs co-in-charge Raghav Chadha.

Jagmohan Singh Kang was Vice President of Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee. He has been elected MLA thrice, 1992-97, 2002-2007 and 2012-2017 and was a minister in the Congress government from 1992 to 1995. Kang is an influential leader in Punjab and has a deep hold among the people of Kharar and Anandpur Sahib region. His younger son Amarinder Singh Kang was the state general secretary of the social media wing of Punjab Congress. He has done his engineering from Punjab Engineering College and has been active in the politics of Kharar and Anandpur Sahib Constituency for the last 19 years. At the same time, his elder son Yadvind Singh Kang is a member of the Zilla Parishad (Khijrabad) and has been an active Congress leader.

After joining the Aam Aadmi Party, Jagmohan Kang said that the people of Punjab are fed up with the mutual discord between the Congressmen. Congress has now become a party of opportunists and power-greedy people. The poor and common people of Punjab have to bear the brunt of their tussle for the power. People of Punjab deserve better government, I have decided to support Aam Aadmi Party so that a pro-people government can be formed in our state.
