Former Punjab finance minister Manpreet Singh Badal has received a setback after one of his key leaders quit his party to return to BJP.

The entry of Sukhdev Singh Chahal in People's Party of Punjab (PPP) four months back was seen as an achievement for Chahal was the sitting municipal councillor here.

The development took place last evening when local MP Navjot Singh Sidhu and other BJP members met Chahal at his residence to bring him back in the party fold.

Chahal without indulging in any arguments announced his return to BJP in the presence of the party leaders.

Political observers said Chahal was seeing a bleak future as Manpreet had expressed his inability to give him the Khadoor Sahib (Chahal's home town) seat since he had already promised it to someone.

Manpreet received another jolt when his uncle and chief minister Parkash Singh Badal publicly announced that SAD MLA Manjinder Singh Kang was very much with the party.

Things became clear when Badal during his recent visit in the city spent one hour at Kang's residence.
