Manpreet’s support base swells online

“Thank you for your overwhelming support, we have now maxed the number allowed as friends on Facebook at 5,000…” posted Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal’s beleaguered nephew Manpreet Badal on his wall on the social networking website on Wednesday.

The ousted finance and planning minister of Punjab may no longer enjoy support from the state’s “first family” and the ruling Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD), but his support is swelling online.

With his ouster from the Punjab cabinet and expulsion from the party, Manpreet has also changed his profile picture. In place of his old photograph, in which he was shown sitting in his office swarmed with files, his present account profile shows a close-up.

As the 48-year-old expelled MLA thanked his friends for their support, his Facebook wall was flooded with posts from his friends, venting ire against the Badals and the SAD, and particularly the Akali MLA, Sant Ajit Singh, who switched sides on Tuesday.
