Punjab Congress suffered another blow when Sukhdev Singh Libra, sitting Congress MP from Fatehgarh Sahib left the party and joined the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD).

The formal announcement to this effect was made by Mr Libra in the presence of SAD president and Punjab Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal at SAD headquarters here today.

Mr Randhir Singh Kukku, son of Mr Libra, also joined the SAD alongwith his father.

The Fatehgarh Sahib MP had been feeling dejected ever since Congress has fielded Nabha MLA Sadhu Singh Dharamsot againt SAD candidate Kulwant Singh from Fatehgarh Sahib.

Mr Libra had left the SAD before the last Lok Sabha polls to join Congress. He defeated SAD candidate Charanjit Singh Atwal from Fatehgarh Sahib on Congress ticket in the last Lok Sabha elections.
