MLAs Baljinder, Ruby skip AAP MP Bhagwant’s rallies in Bathinda
BATHINDA: Amid the competition for show of strength between AAP MP Bhagwant Mann and party dissident MLA Sukhpal Khaira, two staunch supporter MLAs of the former — Baljinder Kaur and Rupinder Kaur Ruby — were missing from his two public meetings in Bathinda on Saturday.
In the face of Khaira flanked by four MLAs from the 'Malwa' region at the Malout rally, Mann was the only elected representative at his two public meetings at Sibia and Tungwali villages in the vicinity of Bathinda city.
Both Ruby, an MLA from Bathinda Rural and Baljinder, who represents Talwandi Sabo, were absent from Mann’s meetings. Ruby said she had "a family function at home".
Baljinder said she had to attend a wedding, besides she was bust with her "hectic campaign schedule" for zila parishad elections.
