Former AAP leader Sukhpal Singh Khaira on Tuesday withdrew his resignation as MLA from the Punjab Vidhan Sabha.

Talking to The Tribune, Khaira said, “Why should I leave my membership for Kejriwal and Company? They removed me undemocratically as leader of opposition; no suspension orders were served. Why should I break the trust of voters of Bholath, who sent me to the Assembly? They want me to continue and I am continuing as MLA”.

However, sources in the Aam Aadmi Party have denied a thaw in relations with Khaira, the news report said.

Last week, Master Baldev Singh had announced his comeback to the AAP. He had rebelled from the AAP along with Khaira.

Both Khaira and Baldev Singh had contested the lok sabha elections 2019 in May on the Punjabi Ekta Party tickets. Baldev Singh contested from Faridkot and Khaira from Bathinda, where he was a distant third.
