In U-turn, MLA seeks to withdraw his resignation

A day after the Lok Sabha poll, former AAP leader and Jalandhar (West) MLA Sheetal Angural, who had defected to the BJP along with MP Sushil Kumar Rinku on March 27, requested Assembly Speaker Kultar Singh Sandhwan to allow him to withdraw his resignation. The Speaker confirmed that he had received a letter from Angural. The MLA stated in his letter that had his resignation been accepted, elections would have been held again in the Jalandhar (West) segment, which would have caused the government to incur undue expenditure. Thus, he has decided to withdraw his resignation. In April, Angural had threatened to move the court, if his resignation was not accepted. Both Rinku and Angural posted photos and videos of each other on social media platforms. Rajan Angural, MLA’s brother, posted on Facebook, “Liars and frauds will be confronted in the Vidhan Sabha. Our only aim is to save Punjab from destruction.”
