PPCC President suspended Bir Devinder, Prashank Kishore met Devinder some hours
The differences between the PPCC President and former CM Capt Amarinder Singh between the strategist Prashant Kishore started in the beginning.
PPCC President, Amarider Singh suspended the former Deputy speaker, Bir Devinder on Thursday and Kishore without informing Amarinder, he met the suspended leader.
Bir Devinder was suspended from the primary membership of the party for his write up which accused Amarinder for his dictatorial behaviour.
Views of Amarinder and Kishore differs on Devinder
Amarinder Singh and Kishore have different views regarding the suspended leader. Amarinder cited that Devinder’s anti party attitude has been spoiling the environment in the party.
However, Kishore met Devinder in the evening on the directions of party high command. The sources said that Amarinder got furious after hearing the meeting.
Kishore met Devinder at Chandigarh Airport
In the evening, Prashant Kishor and Devinder had an hour-long meeting at the Chandigarh airport before the former left for New Delhi.
Bir Devinder said, “I got a call from Prashant in the evening. He met me and said he was worried over the developments and emphasised that the issue should be resolved amicably and we should not escalate it further. He had come to meet me with authority from the party high command and knowledge of Amarinder.” However, Kishore has not consulted Amarinder before meeting Devinder.
Amarinder criticised Kishore for his meeting
After the meeting, Amarinder questioned Kishore that why he met the suspended party leader without his consent. Kishore tried to justify his move but Amarinder was reluctant to hear any plea of the strategist.
Amarinder’s attitude will ruin the Congress
The Congress party had contested the Punjab assembly polls in 2007 and 2015 under the headship of Amarinder Singh. The former CM failed twice to take the reins of Punjab. The recent incidents of blame game between the leaders and suspension of the party’s senior leader indicated that lack of unity within the party and Amarinder’s dictatorial attitude will ruin Congress in Punjab.
