Expelled SAD leaders Ranjit Singh Brahmpura, Rattan Singh Ajnala, his son Amarbir Singh Bonyand Sewa Singh Sekhwan on Sunday said they would float a new political outfit based on the Akali Dal's old constitution, which was framed in 1920.
The expelled SAD leaders trained their guns at Sukhbir, accusing him of causing irreparable damage to the SAD and its cause.
Talking about the Kartarpur corridor, Brahmpura said credit for the project should go to Navjot Singh Sidhu as Pakistan's Prime Minister Imran Khan is his good friend and decided to honour Sidhu's wish.
Shiromani Akali Dal had recently expelled senior leaders Ranjit Singh Brahmpura and Rattan Singh Ajnala from the party's primary membership for six years. As the two leaders were indulging in "anti-party activities", the core committee of the Akali Dal took the decision with a "heavy heart", SAD senior leader Harcharan Bains had said then.
Brahmpura's son Ravinder PalSingh Brahmpura and Ajnala's son Amarpal Singh Boni too were ousted for six years from the primary membership of the party.
Notably, SAD had also recently expelled Sekhwan, a former minister, from the primary membership of the party, shortly after he had announced his resignation as senior vice-president and core committee member.
Sekhwan, Brahmpura and some other Taksali Akalis (old guard) have raised their voice against SAD's alleged deviation from its 'panthic agenda'.
