New Delhi: Amid Captain Amarinder Singh’s declaration of ‘leaving’ Congress, AICC in-charge of Punjab Harish Rawat on Friday (October 1) urged him to “rethink” and not help BJP in any way.
Denying reports of Singh being snubbed by the Congress, Rawat said that former Punjab CM’s recent statements sound as if he is under “some pressure”. “No facts in reports that state Captain Amarinder Singh was insulted by Congress. It appears from Captain’s recent statements that he is under some sort of pressure. He should rethink, and not help BJP directly or indirectly,” ANI quoted Rawat as saying.
- He added, “All that has been done by the Congress party till now is to protect the respect and dignity of Captain Amarinder Singh and increase the party’s chances (in 2022 assembly polls) in Punjab.”
