Muktsar, March 18
Former MP and senior vice-president of SAD Jagmeet Singh’s son has entered politics. Akal Arpan Singh (31) is appointed as senior vice-president of the Youth Akali Dal (YAD) on Wednesday. This is the third generation of the Brar family into politics now. Jagmeet’s father late Gurmit Singh remained MLA for five times and also the general secretary of the SGPC.
Jagmeet said, “I have directed Akal to first collect the data of 300 farmers’ families, whose kin have sacrificed lives in the ‘kisan andolan’. He has done his Masters in Law from the University of California, Berkeley.” — TNS
