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.

Are politicians above the law?

Are politicians above the law?

“An SUV in Mukatsar ran over a 10 year old boy crushing him to death in front of large number of people and no one including victim’s family wants to file a complaint.”

Why No Complaint?
Don’t they feel like guilty person should be punished? Don’t they think that any action or incident, which causes a criminal offence, is liable for legal action? Above all, don’t they think that a 10 year old innocent boy should get justice? If they do feel so, then what is stopping them to go to police and file a complaint so that guilty should get punishment for this inhuman act? Simple reason is that the car is owned by a “friend” of National Youth Congress President “Raja Warring”.

Raja Warring’s involvement in the case
Resident of Doda village, Gurkanwal Singh, a 10 year old boy was coming out from a barber’s shop after getting a haircut and a SUV hit him. Little did the boy know that it would be his last haircut as the accident took his life. Gurkanwal was taken to hospital where the doctors declared him dead. The car is owned by Happy Sharma (close friend of Raja Warring), but the local residents indentify the car as “Raja Warring’s” personal car because most of the time it’s Warring who drives it.

Threatened or Pressurized?
Dharminder Singh, father of victim filed no complaint and also denied for the postmortem of his son’s body. In charge of Doda police station said that they had registered no complaint, as victim’s family didn’t want to do so.

Influence of power overshadows Humanity
It is so sad to realize that we are living in such a world where people like “Raja Warring” use their “political power” and “money” to suppress the voice of downtrodden and prevent truth from coming to light. It’s high time when we should speak out and fight for rights to put people like Raja Warring and his driver behind the bars.

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. 

2015_9$largeimg23_Sep_2015_012035030

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.

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.

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.

Battle of Waters: SYL (Satluj Yamuna Link Canal

Punjab, land of five rivers (before partition), is well known as land of farmers as the main occupation here is agriculture. For purposes like irrigation and farming, Punjab needs more water than the other states.  Punjab was asked to share its river waters with the neighboring state, which created a battle of “YES” and “NO”, known as  SYL (Satluj Yamuna Link Canal) . Just like other issues, even this time Congress was not able to clear its stand. The “not so good bond” of congress party members was revealed. Their internal rift caused harm to the party again as everyone gave different opinions and statements on this issue.

Manpreet Badal

As per Manpreet Badal’s statement, Punjab should not share its river waters. He said that government should not allow neighboring state to take any waters from Punjab. His exact statement was “Punjab’s case is very strong; the only issue is to follow it up. If there is no water to spare, how can we give it to others?”

But here comes the twist, Captain Amarinder Singh and Charanjit Singh Channi did not give a “green signal” to Manpreet’s statement. The thought of Manpreet did not go well with the other two and they clearly showed their “no support” sign to him. But People were not so shocked as this was not the first time when Congress Party’s internal rift made headlines. It’s the fight of “EGO” of “ROYAL PEOPLE”.

SYL3
Captain Amarinder Singh

On the other hand, S. Prakash Singh Badal (CM Punjab SAD), was so sure about his decision. He cleared the air with his words that Punjab will not share its waters at any cost, (AT ANY COST). He never changed his stand in this regards.

Giani Jail Singh (Chief Minister, Punjab Congress), took the initiative in the year 1976, and the SYL canal digging ceremony happened in 1982, where Indira Gandhi was also present. During the rule of Congress, a tripartite was signed between Punjab, Haryana and Rajasthan.

SAD-BJP government in Punjab cleared its stand that Punjab will follow the Riparian principle and won’t share its waters at any cost, no matter how hard sacrifice they have to make to fight this battle.

True face of Congress has been revealed and People of Punjab know pretty well about the “selfish motives” of this party. This party has got enough reasons to ensure their “defeat” in the upcoming 2017 Punjab elections.

Capt Amarinder Singh building castles in the air

Amarinder

Misguiding people in his programmes by making unrealistic promises

Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee President, Capt Amarinder Singh has been building the castles in the air by making foolish statements to the people.

While attending the programmes in Punjab and Chandigarh, the PPCC president is promising the people like a Chief Minister of a state makes commitment with the people. During the programmes, whenever someone asks for something, he immediately comes up with a solution. Amarinder say, “I will form a committee or look into the matter.”

Duping people on drug menace which is not exist in Punjab

While attending a programme in Chandigarh, Amarinder tried to misguide the students and talked about the problem of drug menace in Punjab. He said, “I will set up a Special Investigation Team to nip the problem in the bud.”

The foolish former CM of Punjab has forgotten that he has not won the election and moreover, in which capacity he will set up a SIT. The ignorant PPCC President is not aware about the Narcotics Control Board which is already working in the state under the headship of an IG level officer.

Amarinder himself had accused former PPCC Chief for his links with drug lords

The former CM has forgotten that he was the first one who had written a letter to the party high command accused his old friend and former PPCC President Partap Bajwa for his links with the militants and drug peddlers.

Amarinder promised Lok Pal, Congress was against Anna movement for Lok Pal

Amarinder Singh was attending an interaction programme with the students in Chandigarh and during the session, he promised the students that he would bring Lok Pal in the state. However, he has forgotten the fact that Congress government was against the Anna Hazare movement in which Hazare had demanded Lok Pal. He has also promised to end nepotism in the Congress party. He himself is promoting his grandson Nirvan Singh and soon he will announce his entry in politics.

 

 

 

Infighting with in Punjab Congress still on

bir devinder 

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

_e1f97d2c-f697-11e5-860d-a0ffe8a3a28f

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.

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.

12803026_162908080760540_3827654884087097476_n
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!
