Punjab Speaker accepts Phoolka's resignation


Chandigarh, Punjab assembly Speaker Rana K.P. Singh on Friday accepted resignation of former AAP legislator H.S. Phoolka.

Phoolka, who resigned from the Aam Aadmi Party and as a legislator last year, asked the Speaker to accept his resignation or he would be "constrained to approach the Supreme Court".

The acceptance of resignation would pave the way for by-elections to three Assembly seats -- Phagwara, Dakha and Jalalabad.

Phagwara and Jalalabad by-elections are necessitated with the election of Akali Dal Sukhbir Singh Badal and Union minister Som Parkash to the Lok Sabha.
