The acronym underlines the acrimony. Sacked Punjab convener of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Sucha Singh Chhotepur will launch his new political outfit on October 1. The party — Apna Punjab Party (APP) — will be registered as a state party with the Election Commission and will either filed or support candidates on all 117 seats in the forthcoming assembly polls in the state.
Chhotepur will head the party and is expected to resign from the AAP on Wednesday. To begin with, the party is collaborating with the fourth front of suspended AAP MP Dr Dharamvira Gandhi. “Apna Punjab will not subsume Dr Gandhi’s group, but bind with it as an alliance,” Chhotepur told HT. Chhotepur met Dr Gandhi in Jalandhar on Tuesday and the modalities of the collaboration were worked out.
