After stepping down from the post of Chief Minister of Punjab, Captain Amarinder Singh has started showing rebellious attitude against the Congress. At present, the Congress will follow the strategy of wait and watch on Captain Amarinder’s remarks that openly challenge Navjot Singh Sidhu in the electoral fray and call Rahul Gandhi-Priyanka Gandhi inexperienced. At present, the Congress will not take any action on the rebellious attitude of the Captain. It is believed that the Congress is not in a mood to take any action in view of the upcoming elections.
Captain Amarinder Singh on Wednesday attacked Navjot Singh Sidhu and said that he would not let him win the election at any cost. Not only this, he is ready to make every sacrifice to stop Sidhu from becoming the Chief Minister. Captain Amarinder Singh had said that in the upcoming 2022 assembly elections, he would field a strong candidate against Navjot Singh Sidhu and ensure his defeat. Not only this, the Captain had said that he is ready to make any sacrifice to save the country from this dangerous man.
News-18 quoted sources as saying that top Congress sources said that no action is required to be taken for these statements against Captain Amarinder Singh. Sources said the party would wait for the captain to calm down. Let us inform that due to factionalism and internal strife in the Punjab unit of Congress, Amarinder Singh had recently resigned from the post of Chief Minister of the state and expressed his displeasure with the Congress leadership. Not only this, he had also said in front of Sonia Gandhi that he was being insulted a lot.
Amarinder Singh said in many of his interviews, ‘Priyanka and Rahul are like my children. It should not have been like this. I am upset.’ “I did not take the MLAs by plane to Goa or any other place,” he said in a statement. This is not how I work. I don’t gimmick and the Gandhi sibling knows this is not my way.’
Amarinder Singh insisted that the ‘Gandhi children’ are largely ‘inexperienced’ and their advisors are clearly ‘misleading’ them. He said he would try his best to stop Sidhu from reaching the chief minister’s post. The former chief minister said that he is ready to make any sacrifice to save the country from such a “dangerous person”. He said that he would field a strong candidate to ensure the defeat of the Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee (PPCC) President (Sidhu) in the 2022 assembly elections.
Amarinder Singh said that he had even told Congress President Sonia Gandhi that he was ready to quit for someone else after another landslide victory for the Congress in the next assembly elections in Punjab. He said, ‘But it did not happen, so I will fight.’ The former chief minister had secretly called a meeting of the Congress Legislature Party and expressed strong protest over ‘humiliating’ him. Amarinder Singh said that he is keeping his political options open and discussing with his friends before deciding the future course of action. “You can be old at 40 and young at 80,” he said. Singh made it clear that he does not consider his age as a barrier.
