Days after former Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh resigned from the Congress, the Election Commission has received an application from an association seeking to register itself as a political party named Punjab Lok Congress. Singh had announced during his resignation that he would launch a political party under the name.

"An application for registration of a political party under section 29A of Representation of the People Act, from an association wanting to be registered as a political party under name of Punjab Lok Congress party, has been received in the ECI," a source in the Commission said. The application is under process, they added.

The 79-year old leader resigned earlier this month, accusing party president Sonia Gandhi and leaders Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi of hatching a midnight conspiracy to oust him from the party.
