Sacked Punjab Finance Minister Manpreet Singh Badal will float a new political outfit on March 27.
The outfit will struggle to fulfill a five-point programme which includes eradication of corruption and unemployment and improvement in agriculture and economic sectors, Manpreet, who was expelled by the Shiromani Akali Dal in October last year, said here today during his ongoing 'Jago Punjab Yatra'.
The new party would be announced at a rally at Khatkar Kalan in Nawanshahar district on Punjab on March 27.
Manpreet alleged that people of Punjab were being "misled" with the promise of new projects though the state lack the finances to carry them out.
He claimed he was "sidelined" from the beginning when he was in the SAD-BJP government.
