AMRITSAR: Congress General Secretary Navdip Singh Goldy here today joined SAD the ruling party of Punjab in the presence of Punjab Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal and Senior BJP leader Arun Jaitley here today.

It may be mentioned here that earlier in past, Goldy unsuccessfully contested by-election from Amritsar South constituency. Goldy remained District youth president of Congress in past.

However, Congress leaders today reacted and said that Navdeep Singh Goldy’s joining Akali Dal was a good riddance as his activities were suspected for a long time and he was acting as a mole in the party. They said, he was already under watch and was likely to be expelled in a day or two as his suspect activities had already been exposed.

In a joint statement senior party leaders and MLAs including OP Soni, Sukh Sarkaria, Amritsar Urban district president Rajiv Bhagat and rural president Gurjeet Aujla said, Goldy had vested interest in joining the Akali Dal.

They disclosed that his wife was a PCS officer and Goldy was negotiating a lucrative posting for her. Besides, they added, he had constructed an illegal hotel and wanted its approval from the government.

They said, his exit could not have come at a better time for the Congress as he was acting as an Akali mole and passing on all the information to the ruling alliance.
