Will make any sacrifice to stop Navjot Singh Sidhu from becoming CM: Amarinder
Punjab : Former Chief Minister of Punjab Captain Amarinder Singh on Wednesday announced that he will leave no stone unturned to stop the elevation of Navjot Singh Sidhu towards CM post. He claimed that he is ready to sacrifice anything to save the nation from such dangerous man.
Capt Amarinder Singh also announced that he will pitch a strong face opposite to Navjot Singh Sidhu and will make every possible effort to stop him.
Asserting that he will only leave politics on a high, the former Chief Minister said, "I was ready to leave after victory but never after a loss." He also mentioned that the resignation was sent to Sonia Gandhi three weeks earlier but she had asked him to continue.
“If she had just called me and asked me to step down, I would have,” he said, adding that “as a soldier, I know how to do my task and leave once I am called back”.
“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,” he said, adding, “Priyanka and Rahul (Gandhi siblings) are like my children…this should not have ended like this. I am hurt.”
