Mumbai: Amid the political turmoil in Punjab for the past few days, former Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh has announced that he will quit the Congress party as he is unwilling to bear the humiliation he is facing for the last few months.
Capt Amarinder Singh said that he is not ready to be treated in this manner, said an NDTV report.
Captain Amarinder also denied reports of him joining the Bharatiya Janata Party as speculations were being made after meeting Home Minister Amit Shah on Wednesday and National Security Advisor Ajit Doval on Thursday.
Captain Amarinder Singh had earlier clarified that he met Home Minister Shah and discussed issues related to farmers.
Amarinder Singh’s decision comes after a month-long dispute with Navjot Singh Sidhu, after which he resigned as the Chief Minister of Punjab. Singh has been vocal about the tussle with Sidhu after resigning from the post and had even said that he would fight tooth and nail to stop the cricketer-turned-politician from becoming the CM face of Punjab.
