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.

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.

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.

Congress theme song: entertainment or poll gimmick?

Congress theme song: entertainment or poll gimmick?

PPCC president Captain Amarinder Singh and party are highly desperate to mark a victory in the upcoming Punjab elections 2017. A huge amount was spent to hire the best strategist Prashant Kishore to plan and manage the election campaigns and strategies for the same. “Halke Vich Captain” and “Sune aur Sunayein” campaigns were also organized to increase the public interaction in order to “understand” the public demands. However, these efforts went in vain when public refused to fall into the trap of congress and captain.

Therefore, Congress came up with a new and unique plan to woo the voters i.e. Music. Yes, you heard it right; PPCC is all set to take the help from the best form of entertainment, music. During the next campaign of congress party, background music will be played for the audience. Not normal songs, but the “praise songs” will be on the track list. Richa Sharma and Shahid Mallya (singer of Chitta Ve song of controversial movie ‘Udta Punjab’) have sung the song named “Chaunda Hai Punjab, Captain Di Sarkar”. This song would be the theme song, which has already been test played in the program “Halke Vich Captain” of captain Amarinder Singh.

As per the sources, the song is prepared to give certain “messages” to the people of Punjab. It is to tell the people that Punjab belongs to a Punjabi and that Punjabi is none other than Captain himself (We wonder where was this “Punjabi Son” before?). “It will get people into the Bhangra mode,” a Congress leader said in his statement. Opening line of the theme song is “pind pind the sheher sheher, bas ikko challe leher leher”.

Looking at the efforts of Congress to win in the upcoming elections, we will not be surprised if they release a movie with the title like “I’m the Punjabi” (starring Captain Amarinder Singh and Aroosa Alam) before elections. But both Captain and Congress should know the fact that Punjabis have already a long list of songs’ on their playlist, they really don’t need your “sensational music”.


 

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.

_21ec6956-64fe-11e6-b7cc-991406f1fe11.png

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.

Captain’s hunger for supremacy amounts to downfall of Congress

The factionalism and internal rifts of Congress party are not hidden from anyone and this is known to be one of the major reasons of Congress’ downfall on the political ground. This is not a new “trend” in Congress when one member would blame other for all the wrong doings. In this battle of blames and lies, Captain Amarinder Singh seems to be taking all the “benefits”. He does not look worried due to these rifts at all, but is constantly trying to turn these internal rifts beneficial for him.

congress-94

We can do better analysis on the situation by taking the example of Gulchain Singh and Shakeel Ahmed. They were not the strongest contenders but were still given powerful positions. The reason was their “close links” with the royal Singh. Harish Chaudhary, another member when tried to make his point was treated badly in the party, as Captain Amarinder Singh never wants to transfer his powers to anyone else.

Also, as per sources, when Pratap Singh Bajwa was the president of Congress, Amarinder left no chance to take his position and wrote a letter to Mrs. Gandhi saying that bajwa is a “drug lord”. Not just that, when there was doubt of making Mr. Singh, the president of party, he threatened the high authorities to form a new party of his own, after which he was granted the “president” position.

If we look at the recent incident of welcoming Asha Kumari in Punjab, sources claim that this happened because of the Captain himself. He wanted to take charge of the party hence appointed Asha Kumari here. 

From all above-mentioned incidents, it is clearly exposed that what Captain craves the most is power and charge. He would never allow someone else to take his position.  But here we would want to remind Captain Amarinder Singh that “TEAM WORK” is a practice that is important to accomplish any project, so you better learn it.

Jagmeet Brar fires another salvo at Capt Amarinder

15 August, Independence Day, is the day of celebration as we Indians got independence on this date in the year 1947. But as this date is coming closer, it is increasing the “nervousness” of the Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee President, Captain Amarinder Singh. The reason is nothing but the own party member of congress Punjab, Jagmeet Singh Brar, who has been expelled from the party recently. His harsh tweets and frustration towards Congress party has become the reason of his suspension from the party. Jagmeet Singh Brar did not stop commenting harsh and negative things about the party even after series of warnings, so high authorities finally decided to expel him. He showed his anger by taking the support of social media like twitter and stated the reasons of annoyance.

brar

In a recent interview, he said that he has the entire details of Captain Amarinder Singh’s Swiss bank accounts. He claimed that former Cm has more than 860 Crore rupees in the foreign accounts on the name of his son Raninder Singh and wife Preneet Kaur. He added that Captain looted the hard-earned money of Punjabis and transferred the same to countries like Dubai, Switzerland and Pakistan. He has also saved the money under the name of some foreign trust. Sending money to country like Pakistan is purely Anti-National, Brar said.

swissleaks

With these statements, Jagmeet said that he is all set to reveal all the secret information of Captain Amarinder Singh and his family’s Swiss bank accounts. He added that he would do the same on 15 August 5, 2016. So, we all should get ready to celebrate the Independence Day, this is going to be special you know…!!!

Congress: Failing to make an impression in politics, Raja Warring to act as matchmaker

Not because of the victorious rallies or the successful campaigns but Congress is gaining the public attention because of the “ridiculous comments” of its own party workers. If it is a new way of Congress to get prepared for the upcoming elections 2017 or what, we are definitely confused.

13620976_657089407782333_7676184185792202189_n

In the recent speech, President of the Indian youth Congress, Amarinder Singh Raja Warring, claimed to have done the entire arrangements to make sure that “all the boys” of his regions get “married” on “time”.

                               Yes..!! This might sound weird but that is something he seems to be really concerned about. While discussing the “achievements” of Punjab Congress and making 1000’s of promises to the people of Punjab for the elections, Mr. Warring diverted the topic to the really different section i.e. Marriage. He stated that he would make sure that none of the boys of his regions remains “unmarried” for long. Moreover, he ensured to bring the “brides” all the way from Rajasthan for those who are facing difficulties in finding the one. He further added that he can also provide the Innova cars (properly decorated with ribbons and fresh flowers) to bring the bride home. He ensured the parents of the grooms that they need not to worry about anything when Mr. Warring and Congress are there.

iyc-punjab-759

Mr. Warring started his political career at the age of 37 as block chief of Youth Congress in 2000. Also served the position of DP in 2002, he was appointed as All-India Youth Congress general secretary in the year 2009. He is quite famous for his outraged, straightforward, and outspoken nature. But it seems that he has forgotten his role as a politician and making any XYZ statements in hope that people would love it. We have no idea if statements like these are given to lure the youngsters, but we surely wonder if they really work.

Anyways, let us see if these are “tricks” for Congress. They do not want to miss anything to get the votes this time, (may be).

Hell serious they are, we must say..!!

Expelled Members: A New Trouble for Captain Amarinder Singh & Party

Everyone in Punjab knows about the growing “internal rifts” of the Congress party. Former deputy speaker Bir Devinder Singh and former MP, Jagmeet Singh Brar has been expelled out of the party for not following the party rules, doing anti-party activities, and indiscipline.

Jagmeet Singh Brar & his frustration for Amarinder

Even after getting expelled from the party, Jagmeet Singh Brar continued to speak against former CM, Captain Amarinder Singh and his family. He expressed his frustration towards Amarinder Singh through media and tweets. He was asked to stop these anti-party activities several times and both Prahsant Kishore and AICC general secretary in-charge of Punjab, Shakeel Ahmad, discussed the issue with him. However, getting no positive response from Brar, Congress party decided to expel him from the party “with an immediate effect.”

In a recent interview, Brar claimed to have all the data regarding Amarinder and his family’s Swiss bank accounts. He stated that Amarinder and family have about 860 Crore saved in Swiss bank accounts on the name of Jacaranda trust. He was sure about his claims, and the revelations of ED. He told the media that he would reveal all these details in brief on August 15, 2016. He said that the party has forgiven Amarinder Singh numerous times for his “sins” but this is high time that he has to stand up for his party. He also expressed his discontent on the matter of Khadoor Sahib bypoll, and Talwandi Sabo bypoll.

Bir Devinder Singh: Not happy with Aroosa & Amarinder’s affair

On the other hand, Bir Devinder lashed out at Amarinder Singh for his alleged affair with Aroosa Alam. He warned Amarinder Singh that if he does not leave Aroosa now, he would have to face the same kind of defeat again in the year 2017.

Hide and Seek of Clashes

Apart from this, main members of the party i.e. Charanjit Singh Channi, Rajinder Kaur Bhattal, Prashant Kishore and Captain Amarinder Singh, they all share “not so good” bond with each other. No matter how much they try to hide their “internal conflicts”, Punjabis very well know about the absence of unity and teamwork of Congress party.

Captain desperate to keep Congress’ Sinking ship afloat

Punjab electoral battle seems more interesting this time as a lot “unexpected” is happening. In this Tsunami of “hits and trials” and “sought out plans”, Congress has decided to follow the approach of “make hay while the sun shines”. But the problem here is to make sure if the sun is really shining or its just some temporary brightness that may seem shiny but is an illusion.

Golden Opportunity: Navjot Singh Sidhu
Let us clear this air by coming to the point. Two big “political tsunamis” that happened in the last week is resignation of Navjot Singh Sidhu from Rajya Sabha and suspension of Akali MLA Pargat Singh from BJP-SAD. Although Sidhu did not give any statement or cited any reason for his resignation; but Congress surely sees this act of him as a “golden opportunity”. Captain clearly welcomed Sidhu in the party and even reminded him of the “past times” when his father was a part of Congress party. Getting no response from Mr. Sidhu, the focus of Congress shifted to another “expelled member” i.e. Pargat Singh.
13700979_655157254642215_8866534620159366058_o

“Topic of Interest”: Pargat Singh
A meeting was held in Delhi to discuss the further plans and moves. As per the sources, a major part of this discussion involved the former Olympian. Asha Kumari, Capt Amarinder, Charanjit Channi, and Ambika Soni were present at the meeting. Pargat singh, however, showed no interest in this proposal of Captain Amarinder Singh.
satwinder-bitti-ghaintpunjab

Rat Race
Calling the “expelled or resigned” members in his party, other members of Congress were annoyed with Captain Amarinder Singh. Sources claim that some party members sent an e-mail to President Sonia Gandhi to complain about this “annoying behavior” of Amarinder Singh. “Competition threat” can be other reason of Congress party workers for not allowing “wild card entry” of any outsider in the semi-finals of this race.

The recent action of Captain Amarinder Singh clearly hints towards the uncertainty and immature plans of the party. It’s like Captain wants to take any risk to win after two defeats in Punjab.

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.
