Chandigarh:

Former BJP MLA from Abohar constituency Arun Narang on Wednesday joined the Aam Aadmi Party here.

Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann inducted Mr Narang into the party, according to an AAP statement.

He had opposed Mr Jakhar's appointment as the Punjab BJP chief in July.

After welcoming Mr Narang into the party, Mr Mann said the AAP family is growing in Punjab.

Mr Narang's joining the AAP will strengthen the party in Abohar and its surrounding areas, he added.

The AAP said Mr Narang was impressed by the “pro-people” policies of the AAP government, said the statement.
