Independent legislator Simarjit Singh Bains-led Team Insaaf is likely to join hands with the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) for the 2017 state Assembly elections. Confirming this , Bains said talks with the AAP high command in Delhi were on.
Simarjit Bains and his brother Balwinder Bains, also an MLA, were earlier associate members of the Akali Dal in the state Assembly. In March 2014, they parted ways with the party. Later, the Bains brothers along with their supporters formed Team Insaaf.
Simarjit said talks between Team Insaaf and AAP were moving in a “positive direction”. Terming AAP as a “like-minded party”, he said: “We do not want to split the votes of the like-minded voters.”
“It would be a common platform. It may take time but in the Assembly elections, we would not like other political parties to reap benefit from any split in the votes,” he said.
