Former Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh said he was in Delhi to vacate his house for the next Punjab CM and not to meet other political leaders.
Captain Amarinder Singh said he was in Delhi to vacate his house.
Former Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh said he was in Delhi not to meet political leaders but to vacate the Kapurthala house in Delhi for the new Punjab CM.
The former Punjab CM added that his resignation had nothing to do with Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu.
Days after stepping down as Punjab Chief Minister, senior Congress leader Captain Amarinder Singh had come to Delhi on Tuesday.
Sources said, “There were rumours that the former Punjab chief minister might meet Union Home Minister Amit Shah and BJP president JP Nadda.”
However, Raveen Thukral, media advisor to Amarinder Singh, said Amarinder Singh was on a personal visit to Delhi. “Too much is read into Amarinder Singh’s visit to Delhi. He’s on a personal visit, during which he’ll meet some friends and also vacate Kapurthala’s house for the new CM. No need for any unnecessary speculation,” Raveen Thukral told ANI.
Amarinder Singh resigned as the chief minister of Punjab with less than five months to go for the assembly election after a protracted power struggle with state party chief Navjot Singh Sidhu.
While speaking to the reporters, the former Punjab Chief Minister said: “I don`t tweet, unless i mean it.” By this, he referred to his comment that Navjot Singh Sidhu is an unstable man.
