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.

Senior Congress leader and former deputy speaker, Bir Davinder Singh have locked horns with Congress state chief, Captain Amarinder Singh. Former had accused Captain Amarinder of being “inaccessible” to party leaders and also “hobnobbing” with the opponents. Many senior leaders have risen up in arms against the state leadership and now they are washing their dirty linen in public.

Against Kishor’s recommendation, Congress leaders want Davinder to be expelled

Bir Davinder Singh, who is also the Punjab media coordinator, has locked horns with Captain Amarinder Singh. Davinder lashed out at Captain by terming them as being inaccessible and raised serious questions over latter’s leadership. Bir Devinder Singh wrote a Guest Column’ in a leading newspaper expressing his doubts over Congress success in the 2017 assembly polls and Captain countered him back by wring ‘Too early to obituary’ in the same newspaper. Davinder was later suspended for attacking state Congress chief.

A three-member committee was constituted by Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee (PPCC) to look into suspended party leaders Bir Davinder Singh’s outburst against Captain Amarinder. The committee finally recommended his exclusion. Prashnat Kishor on the other hand had tried to placate Davinder by assuring him a prominent position.

Conflicting views of Captain and Kishor

Punjab Congress to Get Zero Votes, Says Kejriwal

Punjab is roaring high in amidst of upcoming Assembly Elections due early next year. The ruling and the opposition parties are all geared up to grab the power in the state. Everyday rallies, events, meetings, new promises, commitments, growth prospects, development programs, plans are echoed through the loudspeakers by the political bigwigs.

Also, how could we forget the allegation part!! Oppositions leaving no stone unturned in blaming the ruling party. Despite quoting their own progressive agendas for Punjab, they find it easy to pin-point others.

201

Recently, Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) convener Arvind Kejriwal while addressing an event on Thursday quoted, “The Congress will meet the same fate in Punjab as in Delhi. ”

He simply kicked out Congress from the race but he forgot the level of uncertainty hovering over these elections. He even added that the Congress will meet the same destiny in Punjab as in Delhi.

Kejriwal’s speech is focused on the success of the AAP govt. in Delhi. He said, “If elections are held again in Delhi now, we will even win the three remaining seats too (AAP had won 67 seats in Delhi assembly out of total 70).”

Arvind Kejriwal always sounds over confident but his accusation against Congress was certainly not the wrong. Punjab Congress head by Captain Amarinder Singh has brought nothing to Punjab’s fortune. They bought only scams, frauds, money embezzlements and manipulations.

We will win this much seats

His leader Captain Amarinder always hit the headlines with his strange politicking strategies. Even his own party people don’t support him and his tactics. He created a rift in the party with his dictatorship attitude. Currently, he is on his political tour to USA and Canada. Though Canada govt. bars him to conduct any kind of rally in the nation!

The Punjab has turned into an electoral battle ground. So many happenings in the state pull everyone’s attention. This is going to be really interesting to know who is going to rule next in Punjab. Three strong parties viz. Congress, AAP and SAD-BJP alliance are there to play the perfect oppositions. The people of Punjab are perplexed to choose the best for the state because at the end its growth, development and prosperity that matters!

So dear Punjabis, have a happy voting experience!

Capt Amarinder Singh never allows anyone to speak in front of him

Side lined the Congress leaders who raised their voice against Amarinder

Though Capt Amarinder Singh has been boasting of his self –styled leadership qualities in front the media to please the voters of Punjab but it has come out well that PPCC President deliberately targeting his party men who questions Amarinder Singh.

The arrogant PPCC President Amarinder Singh never allows his party men and even the party’s top leadership with in the state to question him over any issue. Amarinder is all in all in the party.

Amarinder can ditch anyone for his personal gains

The incumbent President of Punjab head can ditch anyone for his personal gains. The former Prime Minister, Rajiv Gandhi had helped Amarinder to enter in Indian National Congress as both were class mates. However, after the Operation Blue Star carried out in 1984, Amarinder got a chance to gain political mileage. He had ditched his class mate and left the Congress party along with his resignation for Parliament.

He joined Shiromani Akali Dal in 1984 and he left SAD in 1992. Amarinder formed his own party when he did not find any prospect in the SAD. He formed Shiromani Akali Dal (Panthik) and his new party had lost the assembly elections in 1997. All candidates of Amarider Singh were badly defeated in the polls. When Amarinder felt him nowhere and finally, he begged in front of AICC President Sonia Gandhi and returned to his old party in 1998. The political journey revealed the dual face of Amarinder.

Amarinder had accused Partap Singh Bajwa for having links with terrorists and drug mafia

Capt Amarinder Singh had betrayed his old friend, Partap Singh Bajwa as the party high command had crowned Bajwa as PPCC president. Amarinder had written a letter to AICC President accusing Bajwa as anti-party. He had mentioned in his letter that Bajwa was associated with the terrorist outfits and Bajwa had links with the drugs peddler. The opportunist Amarinder did not miss a chance to betray his old friend Bajwa for his personal gains.

Amarinder backstabbed Sunil Jakhar

The former leader of opposition and incumbent legislator from Abohar, Sunik Jakhar enjoy a good reputation within the Congress party and even political rivals respect him a lot. The rivals had praised Jakhar when present leader of opposition, Charanjit Singh Channi was disturbing the session. Once a close aide of Amarinder, Jakhar was side lined as Amarinder did not find any benefit from Jakhar’s friendship. He did not nominate Jakhar’s name for the Rajya Sabha seat.

No internal democracy within Punjab unit of Congress

“Factionalism led Congress party in Punjab, which has been hit hard by internal feud and rising difference with central leadership seems to be on the verge of collapse. Working in a complete autocratic manner, there seems to be no space left for democracy within party.”

123456.jpg

 Out of power for close to a decade, Congress has been going all out to wrest power from ruling SAD-BJP combine. The fact that Punjab congress chief, Captain Amarinder has already declared next elections to be in his last one, has further aggravated the desperation of Congress party. But all is not well with Congress party. Factionalism and rising differences with central leadership has reduced the party to its lowest level ever in its history. Out of desperation, the party is not even shying away from taking the harsh stand and cracking the whip against the rising voice of dissent.

‘Sing our tune’ or leave

Congress has a clearly defined policy – “sing our tune or leave”. The grand old party of the country has been suffering from repressive regime. It is well known that mother –son duo of Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi, has complete control over Congress party. In Punjab unit on the other hand, entire power has been wrested with state chief, Captain Amarinder Singh and state unit seems to be working as per his whims & fancies.

Popularly known as ‘Maharaja Sahib’, Captain is known for working within a coterie. Anybody who attempts to resist Captain Amarinder, faces the wrath of his tyranny. Captain cannot tolerate any voice rising in his displeasure and goes to any extent to snub the voice of dissent. In such context, Congress in Punjab is working in complete dictatorship style with Captain controlling entire function seated on a highest pedestal.

Jagmeet Brar opened up front against Amarinder

Brar lambasted the PPCC President for his wrong attitude

BrarAmar

The Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee Chief Capt Amarinder Singh expelled the senior Congress leader Bir Devinder Singh for six years from the party. However, the firebrand Congress leader and former MP, Jagmeet Brar lambasted the PPCC Chief for his wrong attitude towards party’s senior leader.

Bir Devinder was suspended from Congress party after a write up spat with Capt Amarinder. On Friday, Capt Amarinder Singh expelled him from the Congress party. They both were not in the good terms with each other.

Jagmeet Brar criticised Amarinder against the expulsion of Devinder

The senior Congress leader Jagmeet Brar has criticises the PPCC President for his attitude towards the party senior leaders. He said that Amarinder has been indulging himself in the petty politics with in the party leadership.

Jagmeet

Brar tweeted, “Birdevinder singh’s expulsion from party not in good taste, smacks of personal vendetta and Highhandedness by Amarinder Singh.

He said that the arrogant Capt Amarinder himself thinks about his personal gains and he is against the people who give him the feedback to improve himself. Brar stressed that the party’s high command is aware of the fact that who is right or who is wrong. But, when the entire party is struggling hard to prepare itself for the Punjab assembly polls, why Capt Amarinder Singh is acting like Ahmad Shah Abdali.

Brar challenged Amarinder to contest from Lambi assembly

The incumbent Punjab Congress head has been saying that Manpreet Badal would contest from Lambi constituency. The former MP Brar has told Amarinder to contest from the Lambi constituency rather than pitting Manpreet Badal against his uncle. Brar said, “Manpreet’s father forfeited his security deposit (in 2012 Assembly polls) and he himself lost to Harsimrat Badal in the 2014 parliamentary elections.” He further said that Amarinder is scared off from contesting from Lambi constituency so that’s why he is deliberately putting his efforts to provoke Manpreet to contest from the seat in the Punjab polls.

 

 

Capt Amarinder to suppress Bir Devinder

Amarinder to expel the former deputy speaker

CONGRESS 94

The write up spat between Capt Amarinder Singh and the former deputy speaker, Bir Devinder Singh has projected the wrong image of the party in front of the public. Devinder had openly written against Amarinder Singh in English daily. Even the PPCC President Capt Amarinder had also replied him through his write up next day in the same English daily.

Later, the former deputy speaker was suspended for raising his voice against Amarinder. The Punjab Congress head suspended him for the preliminary membership of the party and an internal inquiry was marked by making a three member team of legislator for the further course of action.

A three-member committee, constituted earlier this month to look into suspended party leader Bir Devinder Singh’s outburst against Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee (PPCC) chief Capt Amarinder Singh have recommended Devinder’s expulsion.

Punjab Congress heading towards the dooms day

The three member committee has given its recommendation to expel the senior leader from the party for his anti-party activities. It seems that the Punjab Congress has been heading towards the dooms day. The party has lost the two political battles and third battle would be the crucial one for Congress. Instead of concentrating for the polls, Amarinder is busy in firing the prominent faces from the party.

Bir Devinder had raised an objection on the three members committee that the inquiry should have done by a senior Congress leader of former PPCC president. He had alleged that Amarinder framed the team of his loyalists and definitely, the committee would prepare a report to please the Punjab Congress head. Bir Devinder had accused Amarinder of inaccessibility, a charge refuted by the PPCC chief.

Amarinder’s dictatorial attitude will put Punjab Congress in history books

It is clear that Punjab Congress has failed to unite the leadership within the party and moreover, in the different district or local level units. The dictatorial attitude adopted by Amarinder against his party leaders and workers would lead the party towards the third consecutive defeat. The next generation would read about the history of Punjab Congress in books only as after the third defeat, Congress would be finished from the state.

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.”

bajwa Captain

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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tug of war between Congress leaders; wash dirty linen in public

“Political crisis in Punjab congress is getting deeper day by day with senior leaders indulging in mudslinging and slugfest in public.”

_e1f97d2c-f697-11e5-860d-a0ffe8a3a28f.jpg

PPCC President Captain Amarinder Singh who is facing charges of being “inaccessible” to party leaders and also “hobnobbing” with the opponents is facing stiff opposition from within the party. Many senior leaders have risen up in arms against the state leadership and now even Captain is getting vociferous in countering back publicly.

Bir Davinder locks horns with Captain

Senior Congress leader and Punjab media coordinator, Bir Davinder Singh has locked horns with Captain Amarinder Singh. Davinder has termed Captain as being inaccessible and raised serious questions over latter’s leadership. Bir Devinder Singh wrote a Guest Column’ in a leading newspaper expressing his doubts over Congress success in the 2017 assembly poll and predicted that Congress is loosing the battle.

Captain’s defense

Targeting Captain for his autocratic style of functioning, Bir Davinder Singh noted that party’s grassroot cadre is facing a complete disconnect with state’s top leadership. Captain Amarinder Singh has gone public to defend himself on charges of being inaccessible to party cadre. He went on to reply in Guest Column in the same newspaper, “Too early to write Congress obituary”.

Captain termed Davinder as rolling stone who keeps hopping parties for personal gains. He went to state that Davinder twisted the facts and appropriated his public image to score personal grudges in front of entire party cadre.

Captain Amarinder Singh further expressed his concern that Bir Devinder Singh was main complainant in the false complaint related to Amritsar Improvement Trust in which he was arbitrarily made an accused and was expelled from Vidhan Sabha.
