Punjab Congress president Amarinder Singh announced that 34 members of the Akali Dal from Suman and 21 leaders of AAP from Sangrur district have joined the party.

Those who joined included former Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) member Inder Mohan Singh.

Interacting with the media here, Amarinder Singh apologised that senior Congress leader and former MP Jagmeet Brar was not invited to address a big rally that the Congress party organised in Bathinda earlier this month.

"I apologise to him for this," Amarinder said, with Brar seated next to him at the press conference.

Amarinder said the exit of Khaira from the Congress would not affect the Congress in Punjab.
