A 50-minute meeting that may bring Amarinder Singh to BJP
New Delhi : Amid a strong buzz of Amarinder Singh's likely inclusion in the Bharatiya Janata Party, his meeting with Amit Shah in Delhi has created fresh wave of speculations of the big announcement soon.
Earlier, some media reports had quoted sources close to Mr Singh, claiming that he may join the BJP after he resigned from the post of Chief Minister of Punjab.
Captain Amarinder Singh had arrived in the national capital on Tuesday and he had explained his arrival as a fact that he had to clear the Kapurthala residence so he has arrived here. He had maintained that there is no political motive behind his visit to Delhi.
“I am not going to meet any politician here,” news agency ANI quoted Amarinder Singh as saying.
“I had said that he (Navjot Singh Sidhu) is an unstable man, he won’t stay for long and the same happened,” said the former Punjab CM.
Congress veteran Amarinder Singh on Saturday resigned as chief minister of Punjab, capping months of a power tussle that had polarised the ruling party in the state headed for elections in just about four months.
