interlocutors find captain impatient to fight politically | Latest India News
Former Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh may have discussed the farmers issue with Union Home Secretary Amit Shah and Pakistan’s shenanigans with National Security Advisor Ajit Doval, but his interlocutors in Delhi were convinced that the captain of the veteran Sikh regiment was eager to fight electorally in the upcoming State Assembly elections and avenge his humiliation at the hands of the Congress party.
Like a true soldier, Captain has announced his intention to quit the Congress party and set his goals, including state congressional chairman Navjot Singh Sidhu, for his next rounds. As the former CM has made it clear that he will not be joining the BJP, it is quite obvious that Captain Amarinder Singh will launch his own regional political outfit as his interlocutors saw that there was still a lot of fighting left for the leader of the Punjab.
It is quite obvious that the Captain’s new sleeves will be woven around the nationalist Fauji plank, which will show Sidhu’s love and admiration for the Prime Minister across the border Imran Khan and the leader. Pakistani army Qamar Jawed Bajwa in stark contrast. The former Punjabian WC has already identified Sidhu as his political opponent and has announced that he will not let the former cricketer win the next parliamentary elections.
With the nationwide Congress Party buzzing nationally also in the Punjab, Delhi will closely monitor whether the state party leaders rebel against the high command above Sidhu’s upper housing and join the former CM of the Punjab. As late BJP leader Arun Jaitely, once Sidhu’s political mentor, discovered when he challenged Amritsar’s 2014 Lok Sabha elections against Amarinder Singh, the state’s congressional president is politically very ambitious. and will do everything possible to achieve its goal. The fact that Sidhu will not play a supporting role to anyone in politics to achieve his goal is known to senior BJP leaders and Captain Amarinder Singh. To this extent, Sidhu is unstable or unstable as Captain describes it and uncompromising when it comes to his personal political ambitions. Just as Captain enjoys delegating work while handling the bigger political situation, Sidhu’s ability to lead an already fragmented Congress party in Punjab has yet to be tested.
To add to the congressional party’s unease, statements from top leaders like Kapil Sibal and Manish Tewari, both from Punjab, criticizing how the captain was unceremoniously removed from his post as CM. The congressional demonstration against Kapil Sibal is also a warning to other members of the G-23 to refrain from questioning the party’s high command.
While the Punjab electorate has yet to recover from Badal’s 10-year rule in the state, the former Punjab CM has left his ruling opposition to the Congress party under Charanjit Singh Channi and Sidhu with his political credibility and personal intact. Unlike Sidhu’s political theatricality, Captain is a regular electoral player without any song or dance. He cannot address five political rallies a day during the election campaign, but he still has the pulse of the people.
The BJP, on the other hand, may not have the capacity to win Assembly seats due to its support for farm laws, but has both its cadres and support intact to tip the elections away from the Congress and AAP.
All eyes are now on Captain.
