Army Veteran; Former Chief Minister Punjab; Continuing to serve the State” — reads Captain Amarinder Singh’s new Twitter bio. The former Punjab chief minister changed his Twitter bio on Thursday, keeping everyone on the edge over his next move.
Meanwhile, as the Punjab Congress crisis continues to grow, Amarinder Singh has denied joining the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). He, however, said that he won’t stay in the Congress.
“So far, I am in the Congress but I will not remain in the Congress. I will not be treated in this manner,” Amarinder Singh told NDTV in an interview.
Earlier in the day, Amarinder Singh met National Security Advisor Ajit Doval in Delhi. He arrived in Delhi on Tuesday, the same day Navjot Singh Sidhu resigned as the Punjab Congress chief.
Amarinder Singh had also expressed displeasure over Navjot Sidhu’s resignation from the post of the Punjab Congress chief. He criticised Sidhu over the move, calling it “sheer drama’, and said his resignation had proved beyond doubt that the cricketer-turned-politician was an “unstable” man.
I told you sohe is not a stable man and not fit for the border state of punjab.

Amarinder Singh met Union Home Minister Amit Shah at his residence on Wednesday, triggering speculation of him joining the BJP ahead of the assembly elections.
Amarinder Singh had resigned as the Punjab chief minister earlier this month amid a bitter turmoil in Punjab Congress. He said that he felt “humiliated” by the actions of the Congress party’s national leadership.
