Capt Amarinder readies to hang up his electoral boots

CONGRESS 96
Punjab Congress chief Capt. Amarinder Singh will fight his last electoral battle

“This will be my last electoral battle. Every soldier needs to hang up their boots some time,” said former Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh during his much talked “Coffee with Captain” campaign in Amritsar.  

 Playing safe, as he is aware of his defeat in Punjab, he further stated that “We want to provide opportunities to others, to the youth and those who have a potential to grow as good leaders but do not have any family connections.”

It is important to mention here is that Captain had been blaming Badal for not looking beyond his own self and the family. Now, the same Captain is geared up to introduce his 27-year-old grandson, Nirvan Singh, to politics.

Ahead of Punjab assembly polls, Captain is leaving no stone unturned to make his mark. He even urged people of Punjab to vote for the Grand Old Party – Congress, saying, “This is not the time for experiments, and that the state needs an experienced party and an experienced leader.”

Sitting on an exclusive Royal Chair and making a pitch for Industrial development in Punjab, Captain said, “People of Punjab are in debt, industries, agriculture, economy all have deteriorated. It is very much important to create an ecosystem that will let industries thrive. Punjab cannot work on trial and error basis when electing a government.”

Also, Captain did not miss a chance to degrade ruling SAD-BJP government. “While the ruling politicians are amassing huge wealth growing richer and richer, Punjab was getting poorer and poorer to the extent of going bankrupt”, he said, while adding, he will ensure that they are made to account for each penny they looted from Punjab.

Noteworthy, the same Captain, who is showing concern about Punjab and Punjabis’, had been ‘inaccessible’ to his own party cadre. One of the senior leaders from Congress had highlighted that despite of repeated reminders and phone calls, he could not get audience with Captain for over two months.

If Captain is really concerned about the welfare of Punjab then he should make an effort to reach ‘poor’ in Punjab, instead of inviting ‘rich’ to his much hyped ‘Coffee with Captain’ campaign in the state, which he claims as the best interactive mode to understand the people of Punjab.
