Khaira gets disqualification notice from Punjab Assembly
Chandigarh, Jan 21 : The Punjab Assembly on Monday issued notice of disqualification to former AAP leader Sukhpal Singh Khaira under the Tenth Schedule of the Constitution.
"As directed by the Speaker, Khaira has been given 15 days to file his reply as to why action under the above provisions of the Tenth Schedule of the Constitution should not be initiated against him," the spokesperson said.
In case of failure to file the reply within the stipulated period, it will be presumed that Khaira has nothing to say in this regard, the spokesperson added.
Khaira had on January 6 resigned from the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP). He floated the Punjabi Ekta Party (PEP) on January 8.
