Capt Reaches Amit Shah’s Residence

Punjab Chief Minister

Former Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh reached the residence of Union Home Minister Amit Shah here on Wednesday amid a fresh crisis in the ruling Congress in the state.

Amarinder Singh, who stepped down as Chief Minister earlier this month, had reached Delhi on Tuesday.
The Congress leader had told reporters on his arrival in the national capital that he had come to Delhi to vacate Kapurthala House. He had also said that he was not going to meet any political leader.

“I am here to vacate Kapurthala House (the official residence of Punjab Chief Minister in New Delhi). I am not going to meet any politician here,” he had told reporters.

Singh’s visit to Delhi has coincided with Congress in Punjab reeling under fresh crisis following resignation of PCC chief Navjot Singh Sidhu on Tuesday. A minister and some other leaders considered loyal to Sidhu also subsequently resigned.

Capt Amarnider Singh had taken a dig at Sidhu over his resignation, saying that he is not a stable man.

“I told you so…he is not a stable man and not fit for the border state of Punjab,” Amarinder Singh had said in a tweet.

While stepping down as chief minister, Amarinder Singh had slammed the party leadership saying he had been let down.

The former chief minister had also said that he felt “humiliated” adding that he had been summoned thrice by the central leadership in the past two months

His media advisor Raveen Thukral had played down his visit to Delhi.

“Too much being read into Cap Amarinder Singh’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 CM. No need for any unnecessary speculation,” Thukral said in a tweet yesterday.

Sidhu was made PCC chief by Congress leadership in July to stem infighting in Punjab Congress ahead of next year’s assembly polls but the party is now grappling with a fresh crisis. (ANI)
