Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLA Baldev Singh Kalyan was on Tuesday disqualified from the Punjab Vidhan Sabha just a few months ahead of the Punjab Assembly elections 2022.
The orders against Baldev Singh Kalyan were passed by Punjab Assembly Speaker Rana Kanwar Pal Singh in response to a disqualification petition filed by some constituents of his Assembly seat Jaito led by one Simranjit Singh. The petition was filed in 2019.
He is the second rebel AAP MLA to lose his seat in the Vidhan Sabha this month. Sukhpal Singh Khaira’s resignation was also accepted by the Speaker earlier this month. Both had rebelled against the party in 2018.
