Ludhiana (Punjab) [India], Nov 21 (ANI): The Bains brothers, who were earlier part of the Awaaz-e-Punjab front, today said that they are entering into an alliance with the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) to save the state.

Simarjit Bains told ANI that they are joining the AAP to revive Punjab, which has been destroyed by the Badals and the Congress.

"All details pertaining to alliance will be told in a press conference which will be held at the Press Club Chandigarh. The Congress and SAD have caused a lot of harm to Punjab. Our main issue is to revive Punjab out of drugs and bankruptcy. This time a government of leader will not be formed, but a government of people will be formed," said Simarjit.

Echoing similar sentiments, Balwinder Singh Bains said that he was joining Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal-led party to pull Punjab out of miseries like drug menace.

"The biggest issue is to save Punjab. This alliance has happened to save Punjab. This alliance has come into existence to pull Punjab out of drug menace. The country's biggest issue at this time is to save Punjab," he said.

Simarjit and Balwinder, who have announced their resignation as MLAs during the special session of the assembly on November 16 in Chandigarh over the river water-sharing issue, are expected to announce their move in a press conference in Chandigarh later this afternoon. (ANI)
