“Out of power for almost a decade now, Congress party in Punjab is now leaving no stone unturned to return to power. But there is no end to woes of factionalism led party, which is on the verge of collapse being weighed down under its own conflict. Adding to conflict is the expulsion of former MP, Jagmeet singh Brar.”
Contesting his fifth elections, Punjab congress Chief, Captain Amarinder Singh has already decided to hang his boots after the assembly polls scheduled early next year. Out of desperation, Captain has engaged well-known election strategist with a hope to turn around things. But in a party, where internal feud and differences with central leadership is mounting day by day ahead of polls, even Kishor’s marketing gimmick won’t help much.
After Bir Davinder, Jagmeet Brar faces party whip
This move has come close on the heels of expulsion of Bir Davinder Singh, former deputy speakers and senior party leader. It is noteworthy here that Davinder had termed Captain as ‘Inaccessible’ and he even went on record to state that the party is fighting a losing battle under the leadership of Captain Amarinder Singh. Jagmeet Brar shared same views against Captain, former Member of Parliament from Faridkot had to pay the price for his public ourbusrt against captain.
Outrage on Twitter
Media savvy Brar had resorted to twitter to express his outrage against party leadership. Mudslinging earlier surfaced in the public domain when Jagmeet Brar had questioned the credentials of Congress legislatures. He even went on advice them to perform in Vidhan Sabha rather than pointing fingers at others.
When the loyal supporters of Captain had sought expulsion of Brar, he countered them back by asking why did they remain mum on Captain Amarinder Singh.
