The Election Commission has received an application from an association seeking to register itself as a political party with the name of Punjab Lok Congress, sources said. This comes days after former Punjab chief minister Amarinder Singh resigned from the Congress and announced that he would launch a political party under that name. Earlier, Amarinder Singh formally quit the Congress party and announced the name of his new political outfit - Punjab Lok Congress. In a scathing seven-page resignation letter addressed to acting AICC president Sonia Gandhi, he accused the Gandhi family of a “midnight conspiracy” to oust him, adding that he was deeply hurt by Sonia’s conduct and that of her children Rahul and Priyanka. Amarinder also questioned the appointment of
Navjot Singh Sidhu as the PCC chief.
