former chief minister of Punjab Amarinder Singh
Responding to Harish Rawat's testimony to the former chief minister of Punjab that Amarinder Singh appeared to be under pressure when he announced his decision to leave Congress on Thursday, the captain said the only pressure on him was to put loyalty pressure on the party to the humiliation it has endured all those days.
The day after Amarinder Singh announced his resignation from Congress, the public mud battle began with Harish Rawat, who was in charge of Punjab affairs, making a detailed statement on how Amarinder Singh was never humiliated, how he expressed his support for the lost deputy expressed to his "stubbornness". The captain also immediately responded to Harish Rawat's attack, saying that Rawat's testimony proved that the party in Punjab was in dire straits.
“Why was Sidhu allowed to openly criticise?”
Despite Harish Rawat's claim that Congress never humiliated Amarinder Singh, the captain explained why Navjot Sidhu had carte blanche to criticise the Congress government. “Why did the party give the rebels, led by Sidhu, a free hand in undermining my authority? Why was no cognisance given to the uninterrupted spree of electoral wins I handed over to the party through the 4 and a half years I was in the saddle?” Amarinder Singh said.
Harish Rawat said the humiliation theory was something that would generate sympathy for Amarinder Singh, who Rawat said appeared to be under pressure after his visit to Delhi. In response, Amarinder Singh said Rawat did not put himself in the captain's shoes to understand the humiliation. He also said the only pressure he was under was his loyalty to the party. He also wondered why Sidhu still has the power to organise the ransom party.
“Why did you say that you are satisfied with the work of the government? "
When Harish Rawat said the captain did not even respond to a suggestion from the congress committee, Amarinder Singh asked why Rawat himself made a statement saying he was happy with the government's record.
Amarinder Singh also denied not responding to Rawat's calls and even met with Charanjit Channi, the new prime minister. “We spoke just a day before the CLP meeting was called. Mr Rawat told me then there was nothing in the works and even claimed he had not seen any letter sent by 43 MLAs. I am shocked at the blatant way in which he is now lying about this,” Singh added.
