The Shi­ro­mani Akali Dal last fort­night 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 said. Brahm­pura’s son Ravin­der Pal Singh Brahm­pura and Aj­nala’s son Amarpal Singh Boni too were ousted for six years from the pri­mary mem­ber­ship of the party. Bains said the party re­gret­ted that Bra­ham­pura and Aj­nala along with their sons, “have re­cently been act­ing in a man­ner which showed ut­ter in­sen­si­tiv­ity and dis­re­gard for the im­mense re­spect to Parkash Singh Badal and the party pres­i­dent Sukhbir Singh Badal. Re­act­ing to his ex­pul­sion, Brahm­pura said that he wasn’t sur­prised by the core com­mit­tee’s de­ci­sion and went on to ques­tion Sukhbir Singh Badal’s lead­er­ship.
