Today evening amid political turmoil in Punjab, former Punjab chief minister Amarinder Singh arrived in New Delhi. The political unrest in the state took place after Navjot Singh Sidhu resigned as the chief of Congress.
After arriving, Singh said he has come to the national capital to vacate Kapurthala House, the residence of Punjab CM in New Delhi. He clarified that he won’t be meeting any political leader. Singh also mocked the decision of Navjot by calling him an ‘unstable man’. “I had said that he (Navjot Singh Sidhu) is an unstable man, he won’t stay for long and the same happened,” the former CM added.
On September 18, Amarinder Singh resigned as Punjab’s chief minister. His visit to Delhi comes after his resignation as the CM of Punjab. Before that, Singh made several rounds to the national capital to meet the top brass of the Congress party.
Though Singh has said that he is not going to meet any politician during his two-day stay in Delhi, there is speculation that a meeting with the top leadership of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), including home minister Amit Shah, is planned. A meeting on Wednesday between Shah and the former Punjab CM has not been ruled out.
