Captain Amarinder Singh’s love for “CLEAN CHITS”

PPCC President has turned to be a savior for his party members. Recently, Congress MLA Tarlochan Singh Soondh hurled a shoe at revenue minister of the opposition party during the last session of assembly for which he had to face a lot of criticism from all over the country.  However, a day after this incident, Amarinder Singh- The Savior, appeared to justify the action of his MLA and said,” Our legislator got emotional and reacted,”

This is not for the first time when Captain Amarinder Singh has given clean chit to his party members, before this he defended alleged perpetrator of Sikh genocide that happened in 1984, Jagdish Tytler by saying, “I am not the CBI, I am not the court. I am telling you what I saw, and felt. I was in Delhi, and went to all the camps, and everyone I met took all these names that I have told you, except Jagdish Tytler. When did Jagdish Tytler’s name come up? It came up when he was fighting Madan Lal Khurana in Delhi, and that was months later.”

Also, when Kamal Nath resigned from the position of general secretary in Punjab Congress, Captain came out for his defense. “Even if Kamal Nath would have been there as in-charge, there would have been nothing on the party. There would have been nothing. Things have changed,” he said. He defended the present general secretary Asha Kumari also, who faced opposition in Punjab due to the land grabbing case.

Not just his party members, he showed his love of “clean chits” to the rebelled members of the other parties as well. Here, we are talking about Succha Singh Chottepur, PPCC president defended and gave the clean chit to the ex- convener of AAP by saying that he had an “untarnished record of 40 years in public life”.

So, next time when you commit a mistake but don’t want to accept it, consult PPCC president, Captain Amarinder Singh, he would be happy to give you “CLEAN CHIT”. Don’t hurry, this offer is not limited.

Rahul Gandhi’s fake sympathy & failed campaign in Punjab

When elections become just a tool to gain power, the needs of a common man are often neglected & the latest example is set by Rahul Gandhi of Congress party.

Surjit Singh with Rahul Gandhi

 

Mr. Gandhi visited Punjab last month to meet distressed farmers where he had some conversation with a 60-yr-old farmer , S. Surjit Singh . Mr. Singh told him about the suffering caused by the crop loss due to adverse weather conditions including unseasonal rains. Today S. Surjit Singh allegedly committed suicide and the irony is that Mr. Gandhi showed all his “sympathy” to this man during his visit & even his “so called compassionate” picture made the rounds on media. 

It was 28th of April when Rahul Gandhi met Mr. Singh (in a white turban), who explained his troubles to the vice president of Congress during his visit to Sirhind. Rahul Gandhi, after hearing problems of Mr. Singh assured him to help, but we all know what happened later.

Congress party has been neglecting the needs and demands of farmers in U.P as well. We wonder if Mr. Gandhi cannot solve the issue of just one farmer in spite of assuring him every possible help, how would this party be able to take care of the needs of a farmer-state i.e. Punjab.  Did he come here just to get his pictures clicked and took Surjit Singh as nothing but a “voter”?

Forced on the backfoot, Congress in Punjab leaving no stone unturned to prevent third successive defeat

In a recent interview, PPCC president Captain Amarinder Singh claimed that his party has the capability of winning in the 2017 Assembly by two-third majority. The “overwhelming” response from the people was reason of his surety. As per Captain Amarinder Singh’s opinion, current government has created a gap b/w administration & govt. and Punjabis think that only Congress is capable of filling the void.

If the above-mentioned claims are true then here are few questions and public would definitely want to know the answers from the “KING” himself.

  1. Why Captain Amarinder Singh invited Navjot Singh Sidhu to his party?

Captain Amarinder Singh tried three times and invited Mr. Sidhu to his part, who recently gave resignation from the Rajya Sabha. Although in revert all Sidhu gave to him was “silence” and “pure silence”.

maxresdefault

  1. Why Captain Amarinder Singh shifted his focus to Pargat Singh (after hearing a “no” from Sidhu) and “welcomed” him in his party?

Pargat Singh, an ex member of SAD-BJP government was also offered an opportunity to join Congress party and just like Sidhu he said a big “NO”.

priyanka-confidential-759

  1. Why Captain Amarinder Singh suggested Priyanka Gandhi to support the party in Punjab?

Priyanka Gandhi, Daughter of Sonia Gandhi was asked to join the Punjab Congress party for the upcoming elections 2017 as she is the crowd puller and people like her.

In interviews, Captain claims to win by major margin and on the other hand, he is trying all “hit and trial” methods. If this is nervousness, lack of clarity, confusion or what, we have no idea but Congress definitely needs to get an idea on this matter.

By doing such acts, Congress is doing nothing but showing its desperation to wear the crown of victory.

Battle of Waters: SYL (Satluj Yamuna Link Canal

Punjab, land of five rivers (before partition), is well known as land of farmers as the main occupation here is agriculture. For purposes like irrigation and farming, Punjab needs more water than the other states.  Punjab was asked to share its river waters with the neighboring state, which created a battle of “YES” and “NO”, known as  SYL (Satluj Yamuna Link Canal) . Just like other issues, even this time Congress was not able to clear its stand. The “not so good bond” of congress party members was revealed. Their internal rift caused harm to the party again as everyone gave different opinions and statements on this issue.

Manpreet Badal

As per Manpreet Badal’s statement, Punjab should not share its river waters. He said that government should not allow neighboring state to take any waters from Punjab. His exact statement was “Punjab’s case is very strong; the only issue is to follow it up. If there is no water to spare, how can we give it to others?”

But here comes the twist, Captain Amarinder Singh and Charanjit Singh Channi did not give a “green signal” to Manpreet’s statement. The thought of Manpreet did not go well with the other two and they clearly showed their “no support” sign to him. But People were not so shocked as this was not the first time when Congress Party’s internal rift made headlines. It’s the fight of “EGO” of “ROYAL PEOPLE”.

SYL3
Captain Amarinder Singh

On the other hand, S. Prakash Singh Badal (CM Punjab SAD), was so sure about his decision. He cleared the air with his words that Punjab will not share its waters at any cost, (AT ANY COST). He never changed his stand in this regards.

Giani Jail Singh (Chief Minister, Punjab Congress), took the initiative in the year 1976, and the SYL canal digging ceremony happened in 1982, where Indira Gandhi was also present. During the rule of Congress, a tripartite was signed between Punjab, Haryana and Rajasthan.

SAD-BJP government in Punjab cleared its stand that Punjab will follow the Riparian principle and won’t share its waters at any cost, no matter how hard sacrifice they have to make to fight this battle.

True face of Congress has been revealed and People of Punjab know pretty well about the “selfish motives” of this party. This party has got enough reasons to ensure their “defeat” in the upcoming 2017 Punjab elections.

Congress’ Boat Sinking in SYL waters

SYL has become the most serious matter of Punjab. But the question is if Punjabis don’t want to share their river waters then who allowed Haryana to think about this? Here’s the answer:

Prime accused in this case, Capt. Amarinder Singh took the worst decision and the Punjabis are still trying to bear the loss. Busy in his own life (be it be royal outings or love life), Amarinder Singh never really understood the need of Punjab.

Not aware of the Punjab’s situation and the internal conflicts of the party added to the woes. Termination of Water Agreement Act 2004 created a serious water crisis. It created a rift between Punjab and Haryana as well. 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 agricultural border state.

Being known as “Food Basket” of the nation, Punjab needs more water for irrigation, farming purposes than other states. But Congress missed no chance in ruining this state’s prime natural resource i.e. River Water. Congress is the party which ruled India and Punjab on the basis of famous policy “Divide and Rule”. Where 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 has no spare water to share with other states.

Amarinder Singh did nothing in the favor of Punjabis. He kept himself busy in provoking and hurting the sentiments of people. He instigated the agitation across 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 “sad one”. But we must say Congress is really great at creating disputes.

Nirvan Singh, another example of dynasty politics in Punjab Congress

The Punjab Congress has been denying the facts of dynasty politics in the party since long but truth can never be extinguished. Amarinder Singh, head of Punjab Congress boldly denied the allegation of dynasty politics and facts say something different. Amarinder Singh, his wife Preneet Kaur who is sitting legislator and former parliamentarian and son Raninder fought election from Lok Sabha seat of Bhatinda. For Amarinder, this is not dynasty politics in Punjab Congress.

201

Punjab Congress has exposed in front of the people over the issue of dynasty politics as the entire family is at the party and both husband wife enjoying prestigious positions in the party. But, for Amarinder Singh, this is not dynasty politics.

A new face is being emerged in Punjab Congress and he is Nirvan Singh. The younger son of Amarinder’s daughter Jai InderKaur, Nirvan has returned from the UK after completed his post-graduation.

Nirvan Singh has been taking care of his maternal grandfather’s campaigns and he is also actively participating in social media. Amarinder has assigned the task of Nirvan’s training to his poll strategist Prashant Kishore.

Kishore has been taking Nirvan to different places so that he could be acquainted with the activities of the party as well as with the party cadre. However, Amarinder has not formally announced Nirvan’s name in the party but the sources in the party revealed that he would be given prominent position in the party.

Earlier, Amarinder took a u-turn on dynasty politics. He told the media that his son Raninder was no longer interested in politics so, there was no question of dynasty politics. Moreover, he had announced that the loyal party worker would be the replacement of Raninder.

The sources in the party said that Amarinder was scared after the Raninder exit as earlier his brother left the Congress so Nirvan was the only hope of Amarinder. He kept on insisting Nirvan to enter the political arena. Nirvan had planned to set up his consultancy in the UK but he dropped the idea to join his maternal grandfather.

Even Nirvanadmitted media that he has been helping his maternal granddad and handling his Twitter and Facebook account so that the reach with in the masses could be increased.

If this is not the definition of dynasty politics for Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee President Amarinder Singh then there must be another word for the proper definition. However, one this is being cleared that the tradition of family politics still continues in Punjab Congress. The political family of Congress party in Punjab don’t want the reins of the party in other hands.

Senior panel gave a miss to PPCC Meet!

Punjab Congress Committee never misses a chance to make a headline. This is all revealed that nothing is going smooth in the Captain’s team. And it is once again witnessed at a recently held meeting at Chandigarh where all the top slot players of the Punjab Congress committee decide to give it a miss.

The first-ever meeting of the newly constituted PPCC meant for interaction between the top leadership and members of the apex body saw various big wigs of the team giving it a miss.

Amarinder loyalists got upset

Those who doesn’t made it to the meeting were Pratap Bajwa, Shamsher Singh Dullo, Mohinder Kaypee, Sunil Jakhar, Sukhjinder Randhawa, Parminder Singh Pinki, Charanjit Singh Channi, Sukhjinder Raj Lali Majithia, Navtej Cheema and many more.  The reason for absentees was cited personal issues or commitments. But sources told a different tale that they preferred to stay away as they were peeved off at the way they had been placed in the new set up.

Turning down the issue, the Chief of PPCC Captain Amarinder Singh opted to choose the occasion to uplift the morale of those present. He talked about the recent and poor performance of Aam Aadmi party at Delhi municipal by-elections. He quoted, “Now the army of Congress is in place and our victory is sure.” The AAP has already lost in Punjab with a vertical division between the four MPs.

Meanwhile, Ambika Soni, Chairperson of the PPCC and State In-Charge Shakeel Ahmad asked the newly appointed office bearers to take up the charge and get along everyone to mark a victory in Punjab.

Also, putting all speculations to rest, Captain Amarinder Singh and party strategist Prashant Kishore found sharing camaraderie. Though Prashant was seated behind Captain, indicating the role being defined by the top panel only!

Punjab Congress struggle hard as Assembly Elections near Approaches

Alleged as the main challenger in the forthcoming Assembly Elections 2017 in Punjab, the Congress party is gearing hard to develop a constructive vote bank. The poll elections are less than a year away now, the unit of Punjab Congress party has been striving to turn the tide in its favor. But rather to moving towards progress, it seems to head on a self-destruction way.

The Congress’ chances turn out to be fading in the assembly elections due to the increasing in-fighting in the party. The ministers and members of the unit failed to share a cordial relationship. It has been discovered in the recent rallies and meetings held by Punjab congress in different parts of the state in view to share the party plans with its members or supporters.

The Punjab Congress chief Captain Amarinder Singh himself was ashamed on finding such nuisance and lack of trust among the party members itself. He tried to pacify the environment but no one bothered to pay any heed to him. Such incidents would definitely bring them no win. The tension grips the Congress people.

ASSEMBLY ELECTIONS IN PUNJABWhile the opposition parties take full advantage of the situation and leaving no chance to deface the congress party. Even the appointment of Prashant Kishore, a famous poll election strategist, is not able to unite the team as whole. While trying to give a political makeover to Punjab Congress chief, his own reputation is at stake in the state.

The appointment of Amarinder Singh as state chief by Rahul Gandhi (Vice President, Congress) is not welcomed by every member of the party. Rahul failed to please the disgruntled sections of the party. Next, in an effort to bring balance in PPCC (Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee), Rahul Gandhi put Ambika Soni (former Union Minister) as in charge of Election Campaign Committee. Again this move did not go well with Amarinder Singh.

The situation goes haywire when party leaders started raising petty issues relating to own constituency. The lack of trust and unity ensue the congress unit. A team which is not able to ally its own people than how could it be able to bind the entire Punjab?is a question to ponder upon.

In short, the Punjab Congress has been hurtling from one crisis to another and its leaders are voicing our differently.

After AAP; it’s now Congress to woo voters

“It would not be wrong to say that the grand old party of the country, Congress is following the footsteps of AAP in Punjab”

After Aam Aadmi Party’s much hyped “lunch” and “dinner” polity, Congress has launched “Coffee with Captain” campaign in state, where Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee (PPCC) President, Captain Amarinder Singh hosts coffee parties for select audience.

It is a known fact that it was Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) that had started organizing paid meals with political leader as a part of its cheap frolics to be in media and social media. And now when the state is heading towards 2017 assembly polls; Punjab Congress is also going the AAP way of despicable politics.

The only difference between the two is that AAP’s lunches and dinners are aimed at raising funds for the party and its leaders; Captain’s coffee party was held free of cost for a select audience.

But, as it was launch of Campaign, more than 500 people had gathered at a local park to attend the event, where youth raised questions on Captain’s plans to provide them with jobs if he formed government in the state.

Noticeably, it was Prashant Kishore who had extolled Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s past as “Tea-seller” and turned it into a generic outreach with ‘Chai Pe Charcha’ campaign. The same Prashant Kishore has now picked up coffee to promote Captain Amarinder Singh’s electioneering. He has been appointed as the Congress’ poll strategist for Punjab assembly polls and also possesses Indian Political Awareness Committee (IPAC).

It is worth mentioning here that Captain, who comes from the ‘Royal family’ of Patiala, has often come under lot of criticism for his inaccessibility.

An official Facebook page ‘Punjab Da Captain’ has been created especially where the quiz, ‘8 Baj Gaye Kya’ is uploaded at 8 pm every day. Congress has been offering Rs 1,500-worth Flipkart vouchers every day to those who answer correctly and even for those who answer incorrectly as a “bribe”.

“Coffee with Captain” campaign is more or less being billed as an exercise to woo urban voters which are largely divided between the BJP and the Congress in cities like Amritsar, Ludhiana and Jalandhar.

At the end, fact remains that despite of ridiculing Prime Minister of India Shri. Narendra Modi, all these politicians want to copy him. A day is not far when other leaders across nation would be copying him too 🙂

 

 

Congress Woes: Crunch or Corruption?

The Congress-led UPA escalates inequality in their policy slate that allows a narrow portion of the Indian populace to mount vast amounts of wealth. The policies which were sought to enhance the entrepreneurial class as the engine of growth provided that class with the methods to benefit through corruption. The number of scams and scandals rocked the Congress began under the leadership of Dr. Manmohan Singh. And the time Indian electoral began; the Congress was tagged as the party of corruption. It was something that the incumbent party could not shake.

On the flip side of the coin, it is displayed that the Grand Old party of Indian political ground is facing a financial crunch. In the power of ten years, the party took a huge overdraft from the banks while serving at the Centre. The party treasurer admitted to the same but tried to conceal the facts while terming it as a normal thing. The party didn’t even reveal the amount borrowed when asked. Rather they have been quoted saying that it is their personal and internal matter.  But few of the sources peg the amount to be around Rs. 300 crore.

369369369

The Congress aspirants complained on getting no fund from the party. Each contender can spend up to Rs. 60 lakh per constituency as per the election commission guidelines but many of them were told to seize for themselves.

The corrupt congress displayed the fake financial crunch to its leaders and public. In fact the reality was something else. It was to defraud the emotions of own leaders. The party involved in different scams and corruption cases. Even today many of the Congress ministers are struggling to prove their innocence before the law.

Spearheaded by Sonia Gandhi, the Congress party has now lost all its charm which was build be the Gandhi clan for years.  Over and above, Mr. Rahul Gandhi (trolled as Pappu) leading the party backwards with his so called antics, statements and speeches!!

369369369 There is no unity in the team and leaders try to drag the fellow members down. Even the Gandhis are blamed for making no-participatory decision. They follow the rule of autocracy while Madam and Pappu rule the empire.

In short, Congress tenure comes to a horrific end. From here there is no scope to improvise and lead in the power. The golden era concludes on a very disturbing note.
