Bir Davinder locks horns with Captain
Senior Congress leader and Punjab media coordinator, Bir Davinder Singh has locked horns with Captain Amarinder Singh.

Bir Devinder Singh wrote a Guest Column’ in a leading newspaper expressing his doubts over Congress success in the 2017 assembly poll and predicted that Congress is loosing the battle.

Captain Amarinder Singh has gone public to defend himself on charges of being inaccessible to party cadre. He went on to reply in Guest Column in the same newspaper, “Too early to write Congress obituary”.
Captain termed Davinder as rolling stone who keeps hopping parties for personal gains. He went to state that Davinder twisted the facts and appropriated his public image to score personal grudges in front of entire party cadre.
