Dullo was responsible for Congress defeat in 2007 Punjab polls
The former Congress head of Punjab, Shamsher Singh Dullo who was directly responsible for the defeat of the party in 2007 assembly elections in Punjab is the new face of Congress in Rajya Sabha now.
As per the information, the appointment of Dullo as Rajya Sabha member is credited to party high command. The president of AICC, Sonia Gandhi has approved the name of Dalit politician who had started crying in Delhi when the name of prominent singer Hans Raj Hans was announced for Rajya Sabha seat.
Dullo was not in the good with Capt Amarinder Singh
It is evident that the former Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee Chief was against the former Chief Minister of Punjab, Capt Amarinder Singh. The decisions taken by the Capt Amardinder Singh was often criticised by Dullo. Even the party had given a chance to the dalit leader as a president of PPCC. But, Dullo was a misguided missile and he had several altercations with Capt Amarinder on all fronts. As a result, the party had lost the battle in 2007 assembly polls. He was the main person behind the party’s defeat in the polls.
Dullo complained the party high command against Capt Amarinder
When Capt Amarinder Singh had announced the name of Hans Raj Hans for Rajya Sabha seat, the former PPCC Chief Dullo had approached the party high command. He had complained about the incumbent PPCC Chief to AICC president Sonia Gandhi.
Dullo had alleged that Capt Amarinder has no faith in the old leadership and that’s why he recommended a singer who was just 15 days old in the party.
He talked against Capt Amarinder and said, “He did not bother to invite me personally for the Bathinda rally, whereas I went to his residence to invite him when I became the party chief. Party workers had donated `5-6 lakh for installing the busts and the workers and marble came from Rajasthan. Now, some plants have been kept at the space vacated by the busts.”
The side lined leader Dullo was given the Rajya Sabha seat as he had started making excuse of his caste and that’s why party finally, allocated the Rajya Sabha seat to him.
