Punjab Congress is not strengthened yet

disappointment

The Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee has been sitting silently as assembly elections are not far and moreover, there is no sign of strengthening of the party by the PPCC President Capt Amarinder Singh.

As per the information, the party has been working not even up to the mark in the state and still there is factionalism prevailing in the party. Even Capt Amarinder Singh has been waiting for the official announcement of his candidature as CM candidate of the party in the assembly polls.

The political atmosphere in Punjab Congress is not heated up as party cadre is waiting for the official announcement of the Chief Ministerial candidate by the party high command.

However, the differences between the top leadership have not been sinking as still there are factions against Capt Amarinder Singh. The former PPCC President and incumbent Rajya Sabha MP Partap Singh Bajwa is not in the good terms with Amarinder. Even the other Rajya Sabha MP, Shamsher Singh Dullo has cornered himself from Amarinder because the PPCC president had given the name of Hans Raj Hans for the Rajya Sabha nomination but when Dullo approached the high command, the name of Sufi singer was dropped from the list in the eleventh hour.

The two senior leaders Jagmeet Brar and Bir Devinder Singh already facing expulsion from the party and definitely their absence would affect the party in the assembly polls.

There is no much time left for the assembly polls and the party has not pulled up its socks to give a tough fight to the rivals. Already the Punjab Congress has witnessed two consecutive defeats in the assembly polls. If the party would not be strengthened its cadre across the state then definitely it would taste the third consecutive defeat in the polls.
It is evident that the Congress leaders have not eliminated their differences and the rift between the top leadership would put the party on a political ventilator.

Infighting with in Punjab Congress still on

bir devinder 

This time Bir Devinder targets Sukhjinder Randhawa

 The suspended Congress leader and former Deputy Speaker, Bir Devinder Singh has been firing the salvos against his party leaders. He was suspended by PPCC President because of a write up spat between the duos.

After a day of his suspension, he has fired another salvo at Dera Baba Nanak MLA Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa. He continued his tirade against his own party leaders. Randhawa has been leading the committee formed by Amarinder Singh to prepare a report of further course of action against Devinder.

Devinder called Randhawa an “Amateur Hangman”

Davinder called Randhawa an “amateur hangman” and told Amarinder Singh to assign a “dignified senior” to head the inquiry against him. Devinder had been suspended after the write up spat between him and Amarinder.

He said, “If he wants to hang me, he should at least assign an experienced hangman. I am willing to be hanged but at least consider my personality and assign a senior man. I do not want to be tried by an MLA, much junior to me. His father and I were colleagues.”

Former PPCC presidents sitting idle with nothing to do, say Devinder

It’s now open that Congress is divided in the state and moreover, no leader showing respect to another. Devinder said that Amarinder should have assigned the task of inquiry to a senior member. He said, “Why cannot he assign this task to an ex-PPCC president. Quite a few are sitting idle with nothing to do.”

Amarinder wants to slit my throat, says Devinder

Devinder said, “I am not among those who snatch the microphone to speak. Amarinder knows how my vocal chords dried up in Amritsar when I asked people to vote for him as their MP. Amarinder wants to slit the same throat.”

Infighting within Congress will defeat the part in assembly polls

The senior Congress leader Manish Tewari had advised the party leaders to not fight with each other. He had lambasted the Punjab Congress leaders to maintain unity in the party otherwise the infighting of the Congress leaders will defeat the party in the assembly polls.

Infighting within Punjab Congress still on

“After Bir Devinder, it’s time for the former Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee President, Partap Singh Bajwa to target Captain Amarinder Singh and his “autocratic” behavior”

captain bajwa rift

Earlier, former Deputy Speaker, Bir Devinder Singh got suspended by PPCC President Captain Amarinder Singh because of a write up spat between the duos. On his suspension, Bir said, “I do not know I have been suspended. If I have been suspended then I can say that Amarinder would have put his sagacity and wisdom at stake while deciding action against me. As my vocal chords had dried up when I canvassed for him in Amritsar, I am sure he would have been pained by this decision. Captain has taken a destructive path and has been destroying himself as well as the party in Punjab.”

Bajwa accused Captain
In a row, after Bir Devinder, now Bajwa is accusing Captain for his oppressive behavior, while he visited Jallandhar with his group leaders and workers for the rally which was being organized by Captain. They were simply ignored by Captain and his team and were not allowed to speak in the rally. Not even a single microphone was given to Bajwa group of leaders in such huge rally.

Not only this, but Captain made fun of Bajwa, saying, “Bajwa is now out of Punjab politics and I am the wholly solely Incharge in Punjab.”

Arrogant Captain
This arrogant attitude of Captain had showed publicly that there is lack of respect and unity between Congress leaders. It would not be wrong to say that the party is divided in the state.

Agitated Bajwa and his group of leaders have decided to brainstorm against Captain for his egoistic and high headed attitude. On the 24th of April, there would be a function by Bajwa group to celebrate the Bajwa’s entry in Rajya Sabha, where they would teach Captain a lesson on clean Politics.

Noticeably, Bajwa group did not welcome Captain’s decision of nominating a new comer Hans Raj Hans for Rajya Sabha seat.

With this kind of leadership, the day is not far when Congress would lose its existence in Punjab.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Amarinder: How dare you, Bir Devinder? Get lost

CONGRESS 94

Amarinder suspended Bir Devinder from party’s primary membership

The write up spat between Capt Amarinder Singh and Bir Devinder has shown the poor plight of the party in the state. First Bir Devinder accused Amarinder in his write up and later Amarinder accused Devinder in a counter write up.

PPCC Chief suspended Bir Devinder from primary membership

Finally, the furious PPCC President showed his dictatorial attitude and suspended Bir Devinder Singh from the primary membership of the party.

Devinder was shown door because of his allegations against Amarinder in a write up. Even he has also requested the party high command to suspend senior Congress leader Jagmeet Brar because technically Amarinder cannot suspend Brar as Brar is a member of AICC.

Even a penal of three members under the headship of a sitting legislators is formed which would decide the further action against the former Deputy Speaker of Punjab.

Punjab Congress is not united

Only a year has left for the assembly polls and the Congress leaders are fighting with each other. A war of words has started between the leaders which can be seen in the newspapers by the personal write ups of Amarinder, Bir Devinder and Jagmeet Brar.

Even the Congress state head faced criticism in Amritsar by party workers. The incident has exposed the party in front of the public that except framing allegations against each other the party has lost its vision.

The party workers are not satisfied with the party’s top leadership and the top leaders have been fighting with each other. The Congress head Amarinder Singh has proved that he is a dictator of the party and if anyone would remember his weaknesses, he would be thrown out from the party.

Amarinder had fired a salvo against former PPCC President

The disunity within the party had come out when the incumbent PPCC Chief had written a letter against the then PPCC President Partap Bajwa to party high command few years back. In his letter he had stated that Bajwa had links with the terrorists. He had mentioned that Bajwa also knew the drug lords in Punjab.

Congress dirty linen washed publicly

CONGRESS 94

PPCC Chief Captain Amarinder Singh hits back at his own party leader and former Vidhan Sabha Deputy Speaker Bir Devinder. He had idiom Bir’s ‘Guest Column’ write-up as Congress Obituary and fired him for his act.

Captain defends himself
Capt Amarinder Singh has gone public to defend himself on charges of being accessible to public and party leaders after Bir wrote an article in a leading newspaper expressing his doubts over Congress success in the 2017 assembly poll.  Bir had predicted that Congress is going for tough triangular contest and party seems losing battle. While targeting Capt Amarinder Singh for his autocratic style of functioning, Bir noted that party’s grass root cadre is facing a comprehensive disconnect with state’s top leadership.

“Paradox apart, it is strange and amusing that Punjab Congress chief media panelist Bir Devinder Singh, otherwise supposed to present and highlight the party’s point of view in a positive way, has chosen to start his new job with a vicious and wishful obituary of the party itself in his guest column (‘Can Cong rescue itself before Punjab polls?’) in the newspaper”, said Captain defending himself.

He also addressed Bir as “sulking, uprooted” leader indirectly. “Leaders like Bir must be feeling demoralized, disgruntled and disillusioned, but certainly not the rank and file of the Congress which is as enthused and excited as it should be”, said Captain.

Bir, a seasoned leader; says Captain
Captain termed Bir Devinder, who at time was among his best pals, as a seasoned leader. Also, he said that he had made a mistake by rehabilitating Bir Devinder who was desperately struggling in political wilderness by appointing his chief media panelist.

Captain mentioned in his write up, “A seasoned leader as he happens to be, Bir Devinder has the political experience and exposure, having travelled across the wide political spectrum from the Congress to the People’s Party of Punjab, to the Akali Dal and then back to the Congress and may be a possible future adventure somewhere else. No wonder, such “insightful and thoughtful” revelations can come from such “distinct and exclusive experience” only.”

The infighting between the Congress units of Punjab has proved that the party would create hat trick in Punjab assembly poll by repeating its defeat for the third time in a row.

Congress leaders are no more united and they don’t even speak in a single tone over crucial issues.
