Ahead of the assembly elections of 2022 in Punjab, the former Chief Minister of the state Captain Amrinder singh has made important announcements that can be shocking for the Congress Party and can put it in difficulty.

Captain Amrinder Singh, who resigned from the post of Chief Minister,just a month earlier, has made official announcement of him leaving the Congress Party. He also announced the making of new party. Captain Amrinder’s media adviser Raveen Thukral posted three tweets from the side of Captain, which made an attack on Navjot Singh Sidhu, gave a shock to Congress and also made an offer to Bharatiya Janata Party.

First tweet 

Captain’s first tweet announced his exit from the Indian National Congress, which he was a part of since a very long time. It also revealed that he is going to form a new party very soon.

Raveen tweeted, ‘The battle for Punjab’s future is on. Will soon announce the launch of my own political party to serve the interests of Punjab & its people, including our farmers who’ve been fighting for their survival for over a year’ : @capt_amrinder 1/3  

Second Tweet

The Second Tweet offered the Bharatiya Janata Party to enter into seating arrangement with Captain’s new party, however provided that the farmers’ issue be resolved in interest of farmers. He also invited “like-minded” political groups to enter into alliance with his new party.

The tweet said, “Hopeful of a seat arrangement with @BJP4India in 2022 Punjab Assembly polls if #FarmersProtest is resolved in farmers’ interest. Also looking at alliance with like-minded parties such as breakaway Akali groups, particularly Dhindsa & Brahmpura factions’: @capt_amrinder  ⅔”

Third Tweet

Since Captain has always described Navjot Singh Sidhu as a threat to state and country, the third tweet can be seen as an attack on Captain’s arch-rival Navjot Singh Sidhu.

The tweet said, “ ‘The battle for Punjab’s future is on. Will soon announce the launch of my own political party to serve the interests of Punjab & its people, including our farmers who’ve been fighting for their survival for over a year’: @capt_amarinder ⅓”
