Another Major blow to the Congress Party
“When ill luck begins, it does not come in sprinkles, but in showers” is the perfect quote for the current situation of Punjab Congress and its president Captain Amarinder Singh. Currently on the edge of “defeat”, Mr. Singh is trying too hard to prevent the defeat of congress in the upcoming elections 2017 in Punjab, but nothing seems going in “right” direction.
Mrs. Sidhu, wife of cricketer turned politician Navjot Singh Sidhu has disparaged PPCC president Captain Amarinder Singh and denied the reports of the couple joining Congress as their conscience do not allow them to join “such party”. When asked about joining the grand old party congress, Mrs. Sidhu said “Amarinder Singh not of that moral level that he can lead Punjab. He is as guilty as any other party of not being a defender of Punjab’s interest,” (Source: CNN-News18). “How can Congress be an alternative for us? If you talk about honesty, if you are asking for a change in Punjab, to save Punjab, then you certainly cannot place Amarinder Singh at that position,” she added (Source: NDTV)
Whereas, Captain Amarinder Singh recently stated that Congress is all set to welcome Navjot Singh Sidhu as the party’s doors are never closed to him. Before this statement, PPCC president quoted “Sidhu has the Congress in his DNA. His father was a general secretary of the party and remains a member. I know him since he was a boy,”.
Hard Luck, Mr. Singh.!!
