Prediction came as a result of closed-door meeting between Kishor and former deputy Speaker Bir Devinder, which was not disclosed to Captain. As per the sources, Kishor had met the suspended leader where he promised him a more active role in the party. Also, without getting Captain’s ‘go-ahead’ Kishor assured Bir that Amarinder would now bury the hatchet publicly and work in coordination with Bir Devinder.

Bir Devinder notified Kishor that the one-sided communication “is not good for the state Congress ahead of the elections”. Bir Devinder is learnt to have told Kishor that since Amarinder “should not only be more communicative with his party men but also listen to their grievances and suggestions“.

It is worth mentioning here that Bir was suspended from the primary membership of the party for his write up which accused Captain for his dictatorial and autocratic behavior. He had been vocal against Amarinder over his “inaccessibility”, which was not acceptable by Captain.

After Bir, Jagmeet Brar second in a row

After Bir Devinder another senior party leader Jagmeet Brar is Captain’s next target for his recent acts of “indiscipline” to the party high command.

“The case of action had been sent to the party’s high command Sonia Gandhi, since Brar is a member of the All India Congress Committee (AICC), the PPCC cannot technically act against him” said sources.

Captain upset over Kishor’s move

Kishor met the suspended Bir Devinder without Captain’s consent, which made Captain furious. Amarinder never failed calling the suspended Bir an outsider.It is a clear message for all including you, Kishor. Internal matters are not to be discussed publicly.” “Such indiscipline in the party would not be tolerated”, Captain further added.

His same dictatorial behavior was seen when he became reluctant to hear any plea of the strategist, when Kishor tried to justify his move.

Congress will be ruined
It would not be wrong to predict Congress party downfall with such autocratic attitude of its chief, Captain Amarinder Singh. In a row, it would be defeated for the third time in Punjab because of simple reason and this is ‘lack of unity’ within party leaders.

Kishore met Devinder at Chandigarh Airport

In the evening, Prashant Kishor and Devinder had an hour-long meeting at the Chandigarh airport before the former left for New Delhi.

Bir Devinder said, “I got a call from Prashant in the evening. He met me and said he was worried over the developments and emphasised that the issue should be resolved amicably and we should not escalate it further. He had come to meet me with authority from the party high command and knowledge of Amarinder.”  However, Kishore has not consulted Amarinder before meeting Devinder.

Amarinder criticised Kishore for his meeting

After the meeting, Amarinder questioned Kishore that why he met the suspended party leader without his consent. Kishore tried to justify his move but Amarinder was reluctant to hear any plea of the strategist.

Amarinder’s attitude will ruin the Congress

The Congress party had contested the Punjab assembly polls in 2007 and 2015 under the headship of Amarinder Singh. The former CM failed twice to take the reins of Punjab. The recent incidents of blame game between the leaders and suspension of the party’s senior leader indicated that lack of unity within the party and Amarinder’s dictatorial attitude will ruin Congress in Punjab.
