As the mud seemingly settles on long-drawn switch of energy in Punjab, the massive query on everybody’s minds is – is Captain Amarinder Singh heading to the BJP? The Congress chief and former chief minister has mentioned that each one political choices, besides the Akali Dal, are open for him.
Speaking to News18, Punjab BJP chief Ashwani Sharma weighs in on the hypothesis, saying that whereas he received’t reply to hypothetical eventualities he believes that the Captain is a pacesetter of excessive stature who has performed a protracted political innings. Sharma provides that the BJP has at all times welcomed his nationalistic statements made in Punjab’s curiosity.
Sharma additionally says that the Congress continues to be not clearly spelling out whether or not new CM Charanjit Singh Channi can be its face for 2022 meeting elections. He provides that the association is that of an evening watchman, one to mislead the SC neighborhood in Punjab.
The Congress is asking the appointment of Charanjit Singh Channi, Punjab’s first Dalit CM, an enormous transfer…
The Congress, in an try to finish its bitter infighting, has made this transfer. This will not be a case of the Congress creating love for the Dalits. The assertion of Harish Rawat, that Navjot Singh Sidhu who can be their face in elections, has uncovered the mindset of the Congress. Channi has been made an evening watchman for 4 months and an try is being made to unfold a incorrect notion amongst the SC neighborhood for votes. This is the true intent. But Punjabis perceive every little thing after Rawat’s assertion about how the Congress will battle the following election.
But the Congress in Delhi later mentioned the election can be fought beneath the management of each Channi and Sidhu…
That is solely harm management now. They are nonetheless not making it clear if Channi can be their chief ministerial face. And they won’t do it additionally. What does the Congress imply that each faces can be there?
In the final election, the Congress put ahead the title of Captain Amarinder Singh and fought the election. That time additionally there was a state Congress president in Sunil Jakhar, however centre-point of the marketing campaign was Captain. So on this election, who can be on the forefront of the Congress? This will not be clear but. We have congratulated Channi on turning into the CM. There are some controversies related to him however this isn’t the proper second to boost them. It will emerge slowly.
What do you make of Captain Amarinder Singh’s assertion that for him political choices are open besides the Akali Dal? Is BJP focused on Captain?
I might not touch upon imaginary or hypothetical eventualities. Captain has served a protracted interval in politics and he’s a pacesetter of huge stature. He has mentioned that he was humiliated by the Congress, so each particular person has a proper to decide on his path. I might not prefer to remark extra. But what Captain has mentioned about Sidhu and the hazard to nationwide safety is vital. No particular person will be above nationwide safety and no private friendship will be above the nation’s integrity and sovereignty. What Captain has mentioned about Sidhu going to Imran Khan’s oath-taking ceremony or hugging the Pakistani military chief… the BJP had additionally raised them.
The BJP and Captain’s views on nationalism have at all times matched…
When Captain has spoken about nationalism and Punjab’s pursuits, and even deviating from his get together line to take action, we within the BJP have at all times welcomed his statements. His soldier background has at all times mirrored in his statements, placing the nation above all.
