The Punjab unit of BJP here on Tuesday claimed that 11 MLA's of Aam Adami Party (AAP) from Punjab are keen to switch over, whereas Bhagwant Mann, the newly-appointed state AAP convener, said that accompanied by "all party legislators", he would pay obeisance at the Darbar Sahib later this week.
Waraich was made the AAP's Punjab convenor in September previous year.
According to Ghuggi, he attempted to rope in several high-profile leaders for the Punjab elections, but was not allowed to by the party.
Ghuggi was appointed as the convener of the party's Punjab unit ahead of the Assembly elections in the state. Ghuggi, who is the former Punjab convener of the AAP, said that he would stay in politics but not be associated with the AAP.
Ghuggi's decision to quit comes just two days after the party chose the Sangrur MP as its Punjab unit chief.

"Not only after the disintegration of the state unit, but even during the elections a number of leaders were in touch with us after the AAP's bubble burst, particularly when AAP leaders faced allegations of rape, exploitation of women and cash for tickets".
Notably, the rejig was followed by resignation of senior leader and MLA Sukhpal Singh Khaira as party spokesperson and chief whip in the Punjab Assembly. He accused the party of adopting a "pick and choose policy" and said inviting AAP members for the election was only a sham. "Also, a convenor I kept asking the party leaders in Delhi to show me the video on basis of which Sucha Singh Chottepur had been thrown out of the party". He too was allegedly upset over Mr. Mann's appointment to the top post in the State.
Asked whether the party will suffer any setback because of Ghuggi's resignation, Mann said, "Parties are above individuals".
"But they chose such a person, who was recently in the news as per which he had torn AAP posters outside his house.In this backdrop, there was no need to make the appointment in a hurry because the feeling which one gets is that somebody was putting pressure", he said. "I held three rallies for him in his constituency", he said, adding, "In organisations, positions keep changing".
Ghuggi, however, didn't rule out the possibility of joining another political party. "His resignation is a direct result of the moral degradation of the AAP", SAD secretary general Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa said.
