"Told you… he is not a stable man": Captain Amarinder Singh
Punjab : Minutes after Navjot Singh Sidhu announced his resignation from the post of Punjab Congress chief, former CM Amarinder Singh bashed Gandhis for making a wrong choice. "I told you so... he is not a stable man and not fit for the border state of Punjab," the former Chief Minister tweeted.
Coincidently, Navjot Sidhu's resignation comes on a day when Amarinder Singh came to Delhi amid speculation that he is scheduled to meet BJP leaders. Officially, his visit has been called as a personal visit to the national capital.
"Too much being read into Captain Amarinder's visit to Delhi. He's on a personal visit, during which he'll meet some friends and also vacate Kapurthala house for the new Chief Minister. No need for any unnecessary speculation," tweeted Raveen Thukral.
Meanwhile, Congress replaced Amarinder Singh as the CM sooner that he may have anticipated.
Just two days after he resigned, Congress appointed Charanjit Singh Channi as the new Chief Minister of the state.
"I would not have taken MLAs on a flight to Goa or some place. That is not how I operate. I don't do gimmicks, and the Gandhi siblings know that is not my way... Priyanka and Rahul are like my children... this should not have ended like this. I am hurt," he had said.
