HS Phoolka, after leaving AAP, asserts to reconstruct 2011 Anna Movement

A day after leaving Aam Aadmi Party, Senior Advocate and Former Punjab Leader HS Phoolka asserted that the move to convert the anti-corruption movement into a Political Party was ‘wrong’ he said while addressing a Press Conference in New Delhi.

Senior Advocate Phoolka announced his disassociation from the Kejriwal led party on Thursday through an announcement on Social networking site, Twitter. Phoolka wrote, “I have resigned from AAP & handed over resignation to Kejriwal ji today. Though he asked me not to resign but I insisted. Will be briefing media tomorrow (Friday) at 4pm at Press Club, Raisina Rd, New Delhi to explain the Reason of leaving AAP & my further plans”.

HS Phoolka on Friday also said that this is the time ‘recreate’ movement like 2011 Anna Movement. We should recreate a movement like the one created by Anna Hazare in 2011. Those who have left AAP need to unite to form an organization parallel to political parties,” while voicing that the decision to convert political party out of the Janlokpal Movement was wrong.”We will form a big organization within six months,” he added.

The AAP was formed by Arvind Kejriwal and others following the anti-corruption movement led by Anna Hazare in November 26, 2012.

Senior advocate, Phoolka who has been leading a Legal fight in 1984 Anti-Sikh Riots said, “After sending Sajjan Kumar to prison, I will now ensure that Kamal Nath and Jagadish Tytler are sent to jail.” He added, “Justice For 1984 Victims My Life’s Mission”. 1984 Anti-Sikh Riots: Sajjan Kumar surrenders before Karkardooma Court, sent to Mandoli Jail
