Jalandhar: Upset over being overlooked, Dalit leader and two-time MLA Avinash Chander on Friday quit Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) and also resigned as MLA from the party.
Chander’s resignation came barely within two-days after SAD released its first list of candidates on Wednesday. The ex-SAD MLA was the second dalit leader after Sarwan Singh Phillaur to quit SAD within two-days.
After resigning from SAD, Avinash Chander kept media at bay but it was learnt that he was likely to go back to BSP fold, from where he had shifted base to SAD a decade ago.
