Stirring speculation in the wake of meeting Union Minister Amit Shah, previous Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh on Thursday explained that he was not joining the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) yet had no aim of proceeding in the Congress, which he said was going downhill with senior pioneers totally disregarded and not given a voice.
In one more advance towards settling the emergency in Punjab, senior Congress pioneer Kamal Nath has contacted Captain Amarinder Singh whose meetings with Home Minister Amit Shah and NSA Ajit Doval started a buzz of his escaping to the BJP.
While the top of the food chain attempts to placate Captain, previous PPCC boss Navjot Singh Sidhu has chosen to meet boss pastor Charanjit Singh Channi for talks after dissension over the new bureau prompted the previous cricketer to leave his post. Sources near Captain said ‘every one of his alternatives is open’ while those in the saffron party said the party is ‘quick to work with the Captain, however, a goal should be reached over the farmers’ fights’. The annoyed previous CM arrived at Delhi on Tuesday in the midst of a hypothesis about his future strategy, in the light of the ‘treatment’ allotted to him that prompted him at last venturing down as the Punjab Chief Minister. This was his first visit to the public capital after he surrendered on September 18.
“Met Union Home Minister @AmitShah in Delhi. Talked about the drawn-out ranchers’ unsettling against #FarmLaws and encouraged him to determine the emergency desperately with the annulment of the laws and assurance MSP, other than supporting Punjab in crop expansion,” Amarinder tweeted after the gathering. “We will not pull out the homestead charges however an exit plan should be given to the Captain that will advantage the two sides,” a top party source told CNN-News18.
