Sitting Mansa AAP MLA Nazar Singh Manshahia joins Congress
Sitting Mansa Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLA Nazar Singh Manshahia joined Congress party on Thursday. This move strengthens the Congress in Bathinda parliamentary constituency. Chief Minister of Punjab Captain Amarinder Singh welcomed him to the party.
Captain Amarinder Singh said that like-minded people from other parties who had the interest of the state at heart were joining the Congress in Punjab in large numbers. He further said, “It was a clear sign of complete disillusionment with the AAP, which had lost its locus standi amid a party-wide rebellion.”
Nazar Singh Manshahia said that he wanted to serve the people of Punjab and he felt the Congress was the best equipped to do. The AAP had lost the narrative in Punjab, with no positive agenda or ideology to guide it, he added.
Nazar Singh Manshahia was a Member of House Committee and Committee on Farmer Suicides and Farm Labourers of the Punjab Vidhan Sabha (2017-18). He is currently Member of Committee on Government Assurances of the Punjab Vidhan Sabha (2018-19).
