Reviving the Lok Bhalai Party (LBP) ahead of the 2022 Assembly elections in the state, former Union Minister and member of the Legislative Council in Uttar Pradesh Balwant Singh Ramoowalia today announced the renaming of the party as Lok Bhalai Mission (LBM).

He said he was all set to launch the Lok Bhalai Mission (mission for welfare of people), replacing his Lok Bhalai Party, in Punjab and had come here to offer prayers at Takht Sri Kesgarh Sahib for its success.

After paying obeisance at religious places, he would start his political activities in the state, he added.

Ramoowalia had formed the LBP in 1997 and merged it in with the SAD when he joined the latter in 2011. Later, in November 2015, he quit the SAD to become a minister in the Samajwadi Party government headed by Akhilesh Yadav.

Ramoowalia said all political parties had thrown away their ethics and were working for vested interest. The LBM would not hesitate to contest elections and would focus on issues related to peoples' welfare.

Nearly 40,000 members who were part of the LBP would now work under the banner of the LBM, he added. He urged people to support the SAD (Democratic) in the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) elections.

Blaming SAD president Sukhbir Singh Badal for his defection from the party, Ramoowalia claimed he had joined the SAD on issues regarding the welfare of the common man, but the former deputy chief minister didn't bother about these, forcing him to leave the party.
