Captain’s attempt to milk serious issue backfires

Congress is a well known party, which is known to take the “benefits” out of the serious issues of the state Punjab. When SYL issue was raised, congress leaders (out of nowhere) tried their best to take the “credits”, even when everyone knew that it was the party who initiated the issue. Something like this happened again when it came to the appointment of separate Chandigarh administrator.

On Wednesday, KJ Alphons, a retired bureaucrat and BJP leader was appointed as the independent governor Administrator for the Union Territory by the centre government. With this appointment, an old matter of Punjab-Chandigarh got heated up, and so the political environment of Punjab. As per Rajiv-Longowal accord, Chandigarh was to be transferred to the state Punjab, which never happened.

Considering this opportunity as a “golden” one, Captain Amarinder Singh “strongly rejected” this action of the central government but instead of getting the praise and appreciation, all he received was heap of questions and allegations from the people of Punjab. They blamed Captain and Congress for the division of Chandigarh and Punjab. People asked Amarinder to give clarifications on the 25-26 January 1986 incident, when Congress betrayed the trust of Punjab by making Chandigarh a union Territory instead of transferring it to Punjab. People would definitely want to know that why former CM  did not give resignation from the Congress party for doing  partiality with Punjab.

Akali Dal members, however, took the charge again just like SYL and warned the centre government to not to appoint any other administrator to Chandigarh. Now, the governor of Punjab is given the duty (additional) of Chandigarh administrator.

So, it’s high time when congress and Captain Amarinder Singh needs to understand that “blaming” others and “doing nothing” won’t help you in getting votes from Punjab.
