Amarinder Singh reaffirms, neither joining BJP nor continuing with Congress
New Delhi : Reassuring his previous remarks, former Chief Minister of Punjab Amarinder Singh on Thursday reassured that he has no plans of joining the Bharatiya Janata Party; he also maintained that he is not continuing with Congress either.
Speaking at an interview with a TV channel, Amarinder Singh said, “So far I am in the Congress but I will not remain in the Congress. I will not be treated in this manner.”
“I have been in politics for 52 years. I have my own beliefs, my own principles. The way I have been treated. At 10.30 am the Congress President says you resign. I didn’t ask any questions. I said I will do it just now. At 4 pm I went to the Governor and resigned. If you doubt me after 50 years and my credibility is at stake. If there is no trust, what is the point of me staying in the party?” NDTV quoted him as saying.
His media adviser later clarified that Singh and Shah discussed the Centre’s controversial new farm laws that sparked widespread farmer agitations. “Met Union Home Minister @AmitShah in Delhi. Discussed the prolonged farmers’ agitation against #FarmLaws & urged him to resolve the crisis urgently with repeal of the laws & guarantee MSP, besides supporting Punjab in crop diversification’: @capt_amarinder,” the tweet read.
Meanwhile, Congress party symbol has been removed from Captain Amarinder Singh's official Twitter handle.
