Captain Amarinder SIngh has resigned from the Indian National Congress, once again creating buzz in the politics of Punjab. Captain also announced the name of his new party. It is being considered that Captain Amarinder Singh’s new party- Punjab Lok Congress can affect the Indian National Congress in the Punjab Assembly elections 2022. With Captain’s own party entering the competition, some political leaders of Congress might leave Congress and join the former CM.
The designation of Navjot Singh Sihu as the PPCC Chief was the main reason why Captain Amarinder Singh separated from the grand old party of India. Later on, Captain resigned from the post of Chief Minister of Punjab and now he has sent his resignation to Sonia Gandhi, officially parting ways with Indian National Congress.
Now everyone is eyeing the leaders and MLAs who were close to Captain Amarinder Singh. The camp of former CM is claiming that more than 2 dozen MLAs are in support of Captain. Now it will be interesting to see how many leaders will come in support of Captain Amarinder Singh.
Captain Amamrinder singh had made a clear indication of forming new party and has now named it Punjab Lok Congress, which can deploy its candidates on all the seats of the state. Last week, Captain had informed in a press conference that he has filed application for the name and symbol of new party and also said that if any settlement is made on Farmers’ protest, he can enter into alliance/seats arranegement with Bharatiya Janata Party for the upcoming 2022 assembly elections.
