The coming week is very important for the politics of Punjab. Former Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh can play big political bets. It is being said that the Captain can also announce a new political party. In such a situation, the eyes of Congress are fixed on the next step of Captain Amarinder Singh.
The Congress high command seems to be recovering from the party’s internal turmoil in Punjab but former Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh has so far remained a matter of concern for the party. With the captain’s second visit to Delhi after leaving the chief minister’s post, the Congress high command is waiting for the captain’s next move. At present, Navjot Sidhu’s resignation from the post of the chief in the state Congress and strengthening Chief Minister Channi for the next elections are the main questions before the high command. But Congress is shying away from making a decision on Sidhu’s resignation without seeing the next step of the Captain.
According to sources, Captain can reveal his strategy next week, under which he will also quit the membership of the Congress party and can also announce the formation of his new party. There are also speculations in the political circles that the Jat Mahasabha formed by the Captain, which is not active these days, will be reactivated so that the farmers of Punjab, especially the Jat Sikhs can be connected.
During his last visit to Delhi, the Captain had met Union Home Minister Amit Shah and National Security Advisor Ajit Doval, but in Punjab, all political parties, including the Congress, raised questions on their meeting, in what capacity the Captain went to meet about Punjab.
Eventually, the Captain had to get rid of the statement by issuing a statement that he was not joining the BJP. In the meeting with Amit Shah and Doval, the Captain had cited the threat to Punjab from Pakistan and even after returning to Punjab, the Captain raised the issue of security of the state. Then the Captain was accused that he was giving an opportunity to the Central Government to intervene in the state by making the issue of the bad situation in Punjab. Now regarding the latest visit of Captain, it is believed that he is going to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi. At present, the Captain is staying at the residence of his wife MP Preneet Kaur in Delhi.
