Amarinder Singh resigns from Congress,Sonia Gandhi accepts

Announces his new party Punjab Lok Congress

Former Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh resigned from the Congress party.
Congress president Sonia Gandhi has accepted former Punjab chief minister Capt Amarinder Singh’s resignation from primary membership of the party, AICC general secretary K C Venugopal said on Wednesday.

Capt Amarinder Singh had resigned from the Congress, accusing party president Sonia Gandhi and Congress leaders Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra of hatching a conspiracy to oust him.

The 79-year-old leader had timed his resignation letter with an announcement on the name of his new party. The Punjab Lok Congress will be formally launched after the Election Commission registers it and allots a poll symbol.
