Tribune News ServiceJalandhar, October 18In a surprise move, SGPC member and SAD state vice-president Paramjit S Raipur joined the Congress in Phagwara today.
Raipur was annoyed with the SAD for ignoring his complaints against former SAD MLA Sarabjit Makkar over property disputes.
He had been much annoyed after the party chose Makkar as candidate from the Cantonment in 2017.
Raipur was also made the Jalandhar Improvement Trust (JIT) Chairman in the last fortnight in the previous SAD-BJP tenure for appeasement.
Raipur and his brother Jaspal Dhesi had heavily funded the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) elections in the past.
