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”

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.”

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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Shamsher Singh Dullo, a useless leader of Congress

Dullo was responsible for Congress defeat in 2007 Punjab polls

Dullo

The former Congress head of Punjab, Shamsher Singh Dullo who was directly responsible for the defeat of the party in 2007 assembly elections in Punjab is the new face of Congress in Rajya Sabha now.

As per the information, the appointment of Dullo as Rajya Sabha member is credited to party high command. The president of AICC, Sonia Gandhi has approved the name of Dalit politician who had started crying in Delhi when the name of prominent singer Hans Raj Hans was announced for Rajya Sabha seat.

Dullo was not in the good with Capt Amarinder Singh

It is evident that the former Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee Chief was against the former Chief Minister of Punjab, Capt Amarinder Singh. The decisions taken by the Capt Amardinder Singh was often criticised by Dullo. Even the party had given a chance to the dalit leader as a president of PPCC. But, Dullo was a misguided missile and he had several altercations with Capt Amarinder on all fronts. As a result, the party had lost the battle in 2007 assembly polls. He was the main person behind the party’s defeat in the polls.

Dullo complained the party high command against Capt Amarinder

When Capt Amarinder Singh had announced the name of Hans Raj Hans for Rajya Sabha seat, the former PPCC Chief Dullo had approached the party high command. He had complained about the incumbent PPCC Chief to AICC president Sonia Gandhi.

Dullo had alleged that Capt Amarinder has no faith in the old leadership and that’s why he recommended a singer who was just 15 days old in the party.

He talked against Capt Amarinder and said, “He did not bother to invite me personally for the Bathinda rally, whereas I went to his residence to invite him when I became the party chief. Party workers had donated `5-6 lakh for installing the busts and the workers and marble came from Rajasthan. Now, some plants have been kept at the space vacated by the busts.”

The side lined leader Dullo was given the Rajya Sabha seat as he had started making excuse of his caste and that’s why party finally, allocated the Rajya Sabha seat to him.
