This time Bir Devinder targets Sukhjinder Randhawa

 The suspended Congress leader and former Deputy Speaker, Bir Devinder Singh has been firing the salvos against his party leaders. He was suspended by PPCC President because of a write up spat between the duos.

After a day of his suspension, he has fired another salvo at Dera Baba Nanak MLA Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa. He continued his tirade against his own party leaders. Randhawa has been leading the committee formed by Amarinder Singh to prepare a report of further course of action against Devinder.

Devinder called Randhawa an “Amateur Hangman”

Davinder called Randhawa an “amateur hangman” and told Amarinder Singh to assign a “dignified senior” to head the inquiry against him. Devinder had been suspended after the write up spat between him and Amarinder.

He said, “If he wants to hang me, he should at least assign an experienced hangman. I am willing to be hanged but at least consider my personality and assign a senior man. I do not want to be tried by an MLA, much junior to me. His father and I were colleagues.”

Former PPCC presidents sitting idle with nothing to do, say Devinder

It’s now open that Congress is divided in the state and moreover, no leader showing respect to another. Devinder said that Amarinder should have assigned the task of inquiry to a senior member. He said, “Why cannot he assign this task to an ex-PPCC president. Quite a few are sitting idle with nothing to do.”

Amarinder wants to slit my throat, says Devinder

Devinder said, “I am not among those who snatch the microphone to speak. Amarinder knows how my vocal chords dried up in Amritsar when I asked people to vote for him as their MP. Amarinder wants to slit the same throat.”

Infighting within Congress will defeat the part in assembly polls

The senior Congress leader Manish Tewari had advised the party leaders to not fight with each other. He had lambasted the Punjab Congress leaders to maintain unity in the party otherwise the infighting of the Congress leaders will defeat the party in the assembly polls.

Captain suspends Bir, his strategist placates him

A day is not far when we will witness differences between the PPCC  President and former CM Captain Amarinder Singh and party strategist Prashant Kishor.

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.
