Amarinder Singh dumped the people of Amritsar, resigned from Lok Sabha

captain_amarinder_singh

The people of Amritsar felt cheated by their Member Parliament Amarinder Singh who submitted his resignation on Thursday over the issue of SYL. The Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee President tried to pretend himself as a true well-wisher of Punjabis. However, he has ditched the people of Amritsar who trusted him in the general elections.

When the people of Patiala elected him as their representative for the Punjab assembly in 2012, he remained absent from the assembly sessions and even in the parliament, his attendance during the sessions recorded six percent.

An absentee in both assembly and parliament, Amarinder failed to raise the issues pertaining to his constituencies. So, how come a politician who preferred to relax instead of attending session will be the well-wisher of the Punjabis?

He has also dumped the people of Amritsar as there is no MP in the Amritsar constituency and moreover, the by election is too far in the constituency. So, it means the political ambition is very much important for Amarinder Singh as he has nothing to do with the people of Amritsar.

There was no need to submit the resignation from the parliament as he would have found other ways to protest against SYL verdict. Hence, it is proved that Amarinder Singh is an over ambitious politician.

Congress exposed on double-speak over SYL

SYL has been a contentious and emotive issue, which always remained bone of contention between Punjab and Haryana. Punjab would never spare their share of river water with Haryana for obvious reasons.
Capt. Amarinder Singh has been responsible for creating all the mess pertaining to sharing of river waters between Punjab and Haryana. Unfortunately, till date Punjabis are bearing the loss as Captain Amarimder never really understood the dire need of Punjabis.
Not comprehending the complex nature and history of internal conflict, Congress added fuel to the matter. Termination of Water Agreement Act 2004 further widened the rift between Punjab and Haryana. Congress Punjab got the full support of the Central Government (Congress) in this case. The main occupation of Punjabis is farming and it is well known as an agricultural border state.
Harbinger of Green Revolution in India, Punjab is known as food basket of the country. As a result, state requires more water for irrigation for farming purpose. Congress is the party which ruled India and Punjab on the basis of famous policy “Divide and Rule”. Where as Akalis always claimed that they won’t let any other state take a single drop of water from Punjab, Congress did the opposite despite knowing the fact that Punjab doesnt even have a drop of water to spare with anybody.
Amarinder Singh did nothing in tswarajya-2016-03-0982b193-e84c-4f97-a1f6-3c2ef52b0324-ind1he favor of Punjabis. He kept himself busy in provoking and hurting the sentiments of people. He instigated the agitation across the state a number of times. It’s been years now, but Congress failed to take any correct and helpful action in the same. For now, SAD-BJP government currently ruling in Punjab has taken a strict action to not share river waters at any cost.
So we will have to wait till this dispute gets sorted out. God knows if it will have a “happy ending” or a sad one. But we must say Congress is really great at creating disputes.

When a big tree falls

It’s November, the month of the largest massacre that happened in Punjab, i.e. Sikh Genocide 1984. During this month in the year 1984, a mass killing of Sikhs was planned and executed by the grand old party Congress as a revenge of assassination of Indira Gandhi.

What exactly happened?
In the year 1984, Indira Gandhi planned an attack on the holy shrine of Sikhs, Golden Temple Amritsar, which was unacceptable by the Sikhs at any cost. Many Sikhs were killed during the attack and religious sentiments of Sikhs were badly hurt. So, two Sikh bodyguards of then prime minister, Indira Gandhi killed her as they were fed up of her dictatorship rule and her discrimination towards Sikh community.

After her murder, Rajiv Gandhi, Jagdish Tytler & Sajjan Kumar of Congress party planned a revenge which involved mass killing of Sikhs in the National Capital, Delhi. Over the next few days, thousand of Sikhs were killed in fully systematic planned riots, which were led by Congress activists & leaders. The killings were so brutal that burning tires were used to kill the Sikh men in the broader daylight and Congress leaders provided the voting lists to the mobs to identify Sikh families.
The then Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi, allegedly made a statement justifying the killings, “When a big tree falls, the earth is bound to shake” and there was no apology from the Congress party.
Till now no culprits have been punished and Congress is trying to save them using the “political power”.
Punjab Congress rubs the salt on the wounds of Sikhs 
Declaring Indira Gandhi martyrdom has already initiated the hate war for Congress party in the Punjab. Congress leader Raja Warring’s image wearing a t-shirt with a message “Maa Tujhe Salaam” to pay the homage to former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi on her martyrdom day is doing the rounds on social media is more than enough to add fuel to the fire.

All we want to say to Captain and Congress party is that don’t forget the humanity for the sake of getting political power & position.

Desperate Amarinder Singh offers Deputy CM seat to Navjot Sidhu

The Punjab Congress seems to be in the troubled waters as the PPCC President has been showing his desperateness for Sidhu and finally, he is going to offer him the post of Deputy Chief Minister.

According to the sources in the Punjab Congress, the PPCC President Capt Amarinder Singh is still in the vacillating condition for Navjot Singh Sidhu.

The upcoming Punjab assembly polls would be the acid test for the former Chief Minister of Punjab, Amarinder Singh, as he has already witnessed two consecutive defeats in the last two assembly elections.

So, the desperate Punjab Congress head Amarinder Singh is keen to get the cricketer turned politician Navjot Singh Sidhu into the party fold. When the former BJP MP Navjot Singh Sidhu resigned from the Rajya Sabha seat, Amarinder Singh had shown his keenness to get Sidhu into the party.

At that time, he tried to please Sidhu and told that his father was the Congress leader from Patiala. Amarinder also told that he also hails from Sidhu clan. When Sidhu announced his new platform Awaz-e-Punjab, Amarinder took a u-turn and lambasted at Sidhu.

However, the incumbent Punjab Congress head has been desperately changing statements for Sidhu. Sometimes he looks annoyed with Sidhu, but he wants Sidhu’s entry into Punjab Congress so that the party’s chances of winning the polls could be enhanced.

The Punjab Congress has already lost the two assembly elections consecutively in the headship of Amarinder Singh and now the party has been contesting under his leadership for the third time.

Amarinder Singh is confused these days as all programs made by the party’s poll strategist Prashant Kishore has totally failed. So, that’s why Amarinder needs a prominent face because he knows that he alone can’t do anything so that’s why he is showing his desperateness for Navjot Singh Sidhu.

 

Amarinder scored a self-goal

captain_amarinder_singh

The infighting within the Punjab Congress has been going on and the Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee President Capt Amarinder Singh making statements that the party is not divided.

Amarinder Singh scored self-goal as he openly made a statement to the media that the Punjab Congress is all set to clip the wings of the influential factions’ leaders within the party.

As per the information was given by Amarinder Singh, the party has framed a strong strategy to shortlist the probable candidates by the survey reports by various independent agencies so that the party could give the ticket to the candidate having win ability.

Even the PPCC President himself revealed that in the 2012 assembly elections, the faction of leaders supported the rival party candidates and that’s why the Punjab Congress had lost the assembly polls.

Amarinder further told that during the 2012 assembly polls, the party gave tickets to 46 faction leaders but only eight could manage to win the polls and rest of the candidates supported the rival candidates.

The PPCC President revealed the truth about his party, and he proved that the infighting led to the party’s defeat in the last assembly polls and still the infighting continues in Punjab Congress.

However, the former Chief Minister of Punjab made statements regarding the party’s unity and ruled out the possibilities of infighting within the party. But, the recent statement of Amarinder Singh has completely exposed the party that the party is not at all united.

Even the party had taken the candidates applied for the party ticket to the religious places and asked them to take an oath that they would work hard for the party.

So, it is crystal clear that the Punjab Congress has been heading towards its doomsday as infighting is continuing in the party.

 

Punjab Congress leader had promised to open opium vends in Punjab

Capt Amrinder Singh

Capt Amarinder Singh, the President of Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee, has forgotten that his aide and Congress leader Sukhpal Singh Bhullar had promised that if the party formed the government in Punjab, the opium vends would be opened in Punjab.

Bhullar had promised to open poppy husk and opium outlets in Punjab if Congress formed a government in 2017 polls. Bhullar had made the statement in front of Amarinder during a rally.

The entire Punjabi community would be shocked to hear that the Congress leader had given the statement in front of Capt Amarinder Singh.

Bhullar made the statement in a public rally which was also attended by Punjab Pradesh Congress head, Capt Amarinder Singh at Amarkot in 2015. Sukhpal Singh Bhullar is a staunch supporter of Capt Amarinder Singh.

Bhullar had stated that poppy husk and opium vends would save the people of Punjab. When media had asked him the question regarding his absurd statement, Bhullar said, “The opium and poppy husk vends would save the lives of people as poppy husk and opium were the best options for curing the different diseases.”

Bhullar had said, “The only way to get rid of heroine is to legalise it. The US did the same. The drugs being produced illegally are impure which are killing Punjab youths.”

How such leaders who favoured the drugs would bring revolution in the state?

The Congress party is boasting that it would eliminate the drug menace from the state if the party forms the government. However, the statement of Capt Amarinder and his aide, Bhullar differ. It seems that party is directionless over the issue of drugs.

On the one hand, Amarinder claiming that he would eliminate drugs and on another, Bhullar demanding the opening of liquor vends. How such leaders would bring revolution in the state. The Congress party has been moving towards its end in the state.

Reality check on Congress performance in midst of pre -poll surveys

T.V channels are all set with their assumptions, facts, and theories about the results of upcoming poll results? And the recent addition is the survey of India Today Group. As per their opinion poll, Congress is going to mark a victory next year. Their poll made a projection that Captain Amarinder Singh is emerging as one of the popular chief minister candidates in Punjab.

14720466_1597616187210332_1769709287550853646_n

Maybe, PPCC President tried to “use” the “media” for the self-praise but totally at the wrong time. As we all know, this is the era of technology and we have all the proofs of India Today’s fake surveys and “self-created” results, which claimed the victory of Congress in the year 2012 also and we all know the actual results.

What’s the reality?

Keeping these “paid” results aside, what’s the real scenario of Punjab? Congress’ has gained all the popularity due to the “infighting” and “violence” created by its members. Here are some headlines:

14543948_1597263027245648_7363037089134813969_o 14711186_1597554817216469_7434189249396294228_o

  • Youth congress secretary got arrested in Ludhiana for violence and 37 more members were booked on the same charge.
  • Members of Congress, Bittu and Ashu are booked under kidnapping and attempt to murder cases.
  • Congress leader shot a nephew of political leader
  • Captain Amarinder Singh chooses Politics over Nation’s security
  • Rahul Gandhi slammed over “Dalali” statement
  • Congress aspirants to boycott party interview

Looking at the point given above, it is quite hard to imagine that Captain is getting “popular” and Congress is ready to mark a “victory”.

Suggestion to Captain:

So, we have come up with some suggestions for the captain. It’s better to face the reality than to hide it behind the “paid media results”. You should focus on solving the issues with your own party members, and teach them some lessons on “Teamwork” and “Unity”. Tell your youth members to stop misusing their political powers. Last but not the least, before publishing such “poll results”, save your own “CM Seat” because Sidhu is all set to replace you.

Capt Amarinder Singh desperate for Navjot Singh Sidhu

amrinder-mar7-1_647_022516090404

The Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee President, Capt Amarinder Singh seems to be lost his senses as he is frequently changing his statements for the former BJP MP Navjot Singh Sidhu.

Amarinder Singh said that Sidhu is welcome to join the party. In fact, the PPCC head is totally confused over the Sidhu’s next move and frequently showing his eagerness for the cricketer turned politician.

In Amritsar, Amarinder said that everyone was “welcome” to join the party “without any condition” and “whoever does so, would have to follow a certain discipline”. If Sidhu wants to join Congress, the doors of the party would remain open for him.

He told that Sidhu’s ‘Awaaz-e-Punjab’ front was “welcome” to merge with the Congress.
Amarinder Singh has been changing his colours on Navjot Singh Sidhu.  Earlier, he raised questions at Sidhu’s credibility to change the 120-year-old history of Congress party. He said that party would take him if he would come unconditionally.

When Sidhu had resigned from the post of Rajya Sabha MP, the PPCC President told that Sidhu could adhere to the party and the doors of the party would always remain open for him.

At that time Amarinder Singh had also stated that Sidhu’s father was his friend and he is from Sidhu clan. He had appreciated the move of Sidhu’s resignation from the Rajya Sabha.

However, Sidhu announced a platform ‘Awaz-e-Punjab’ and Amarinder had changed his stance for Sidhu. He told that Sidhu is a misguided missile and the platform would result in a failure.

Amarinder Singh even remarked that who knew Sidhu in Punjab and Punjab Congress didn’t bother that whether Sidhu formed his political outfit.

However, the PPCC President is totally confused over Sidhu as he wants that Sidhu joins the party. Even he is also showing his desperation for Sidhu as Amarinder is popular for his opportunism.

Punjab Congress confused, making campaigns after campaigns

The Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee has been making campaigns after campaigns as confusion prevailed within the party for making a concrete strategy for the upcoming Punjab assembly polls.

The AICC had signed the prominent poll strategist Prashant Kishore for the political makeover of Punjab Congress and Uttar Pradesh Congress. However, the poll strategist Kishore completely failed to gain grounds in Punjab as the party is affected with the factionalism within the leadership and workers.

Kishore had designed the program, ‘Coffee with Captain’ which drew flak as the youngsters started asking him the questions regarding his absenteeism in assembly and parliament.

Another programme, ‘Halke Da Captain’ didn’t fetch the crowd, and ‘Punjab Congress Express’ derailed in the state. Finally, the Punjab Congress is all set to kick off its farmer outreach campaign to reach out to each and every farmer from October 12.

Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee President Captain Amarinder Singh said in the first phase – from October 12 to October 25, party workers will engage with more than 25 lakh households.

The party will establish direct contact with 75 lakh voters, reaching out to more than two crore people in this period. Amarinder played farmer card to woo the farmers of Punjab. He said that if the party forms the government, the farmers would be waived off from their all farm debts.

It is evident that the former Chief Minister of Punjab had done nothing for the welfare of the farmers in his five years regime. Farmers held protests during his tenure as Punjab Chief Minister.

It seems the Punjab Congress has been struggling hard to gain the grounds in Punjab politics. The party has been coming out with some programmes to reach out the masses, but programmes failed to woo the voters of Punjab.

 

 

 

Capt Amarinder Singh changes his colours like chameleon

Capt. Amarinder Singh 2
The Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee President, Capt Amarinder Singh has been changing his colours on Navjot Singh Sidhu. Currently, he has come out with the statement that Sidhu can join the Congress without the riders.

He also raised questions at Sidhu’s credibility to change the 120-year-old history of Congress party. He said that party is willing to take him if he joins unconditionally.

When the cricketer turned politician Navjot Singh Sidhu had resigned from the post of Rajya Sabha MP, the PPCC President told that Sidhu could adhere to the party and the doors of the party would always remain open for him.

At that time Amarinder Singh had also stated that Sidhu’s father was his friend and he is from Sidhu clan. He had appreciated the move of Sidhu’s resignation from the Rajya Sabha.

However, Sidhu announced a platform ‘Awaz-e-Punjab’ and Amarinder had changed his stance for Sidhu. He told that Sidhu is a misguided missile and the platform would result in a failure.

Amarinder Singh even remarked that who knew Sidhu in Punjab and Punjab Congress didn’t bother that whether Sidhu formed his political outfit.

Currently, Amarinder changed his colours as he told that Sidhu could join Congress unconditionally. Amarinder Singh has lost his direction as he is altering his statements for Sidhu.

However, the statements of Amarinder proved that he is keen to induct Sidhu he gets a green signal from the former BJP MP.
