Capt Amarinder: Congress may defeat Congress, we will lose the polls

Infighting within party leadership and workers would lead the Congress towards its third consecutive victory


The Punjab tour of PPCC President Amarinder Singh apparently failed to strengthen the party workers or district level Congress leaders as the former CM facing ire of party workers in his scheduled programmes.

When he started his 20 days tour from Amritsar, the party workers had accused Amarinder for the non-cooperation of the senior leadership with the local level leaders. Moreover, they wanted to get the new faces in the party. At that time the workers had created ruckus and the poll strategist of Capt Amarinder, Prashant Kishore had left the programme in the middle. At that time, the Amarinder had to face the workers anger.

In Ludhiana, Amarinder finally admitted that Congress would defeat Congress in Punjab Polls

Capt Amarinder Singh witnessed a huge criticism from the party workers in his programme. The ruckus created by them made a fuming PPCC president declare from the dais and said, “I am much disappointed with what I am seeing here today. I am here to listen to you but this is no way to express yourself. I am here to get your views which we can incorporate in out manifesto but you have made a mockery of the entire exercise.”

The workers for their part, too, did not mince words and told Amarinder to his face that factionalism, if not sorted out soon, would become the party’s undoing for the third consecutive time in 2017.

Party workers pointed out “Deep Rooted Factionalist” with in Congress

In the programme, a party worker accused Amarinder that there is a deep rooted factionalism with in the Congress as they said that not even a single poster of former Ludhiana MP Manish Tewari was put at the venue.

Another worker, Davinder Singh, told Amarinder, “You should tell your MLAs to stand with the workers”. “Look at our MLA, whenever we call him, he says he is in Chandigarh. Our MLAs work against us.”

It has been come out in the open that the party’s top leadership, middle level leadership and local level leadership infighting with each other and there are no evidences that prove the unity within Punjab Congress.
