The goal is to win
On this day Amarinder Singh held a press conference in Chandigarh. There he said that his goal is to win the Punjab Assembly elections and he believes that they can do it. Amarinder Singh had a meeting with veteran BJP leader and Union Home Minister Amit Shah. After that, he firmly announced his alliance with the BJP in the forthcoming elections.
Leaving the Congress after leaving the Chief Ministership
Amarinder Singh had to resign from the Chief Minister’s seat after a power struggle with Punjab Pradesh Congress President Navjot Singh Sidhu. He also announced his decision to leave the Congress last October. He also formed his new political party Punjab Lok Congress.
Amarinder’s condition has been fulfilled
Amarinder Singh has met the top leadership of the BJP several times since leaving the Chief Minister’s seat. But his condition was to repeal the three agricultural laws. After the announcement of the Prime Minister on the birth anniversary of Guru Nanak, the Central Government has passed a law in Parliament repealing three agricultural laws. As a result, there was no obstacle for Amarinder Singh to form an alliance with the BJP.
Amit Shah indicated on Saturday
On Saturday, Union Home Minister Amit Shah said that BJP was talking to Amarinder Singh and former Shiromani Akali Dal leader Sukhdev Singh Dhinsa. He also hinted at a seat deal with the two parties in the Punjab elections.
Meanwhile, the BJP has come down to strengthen its own party to fight in Punjab. Manjinder Singh Sirsa, head of the Delhi Sikh Gurudwara Management Committee, had earlier resigned to join the BJP. Also joining the BJP are former Punjab Police DG S Virk and former Shiromani Akali Dal MLA Sarabjit Singh Makkar. While the BJP did not get a chance to contest in more than 23 seats in Punjab, this time they will get a chance to contest in more seats.
Results of Punjab in 2018
Punjab is one of the five states to go to the polls early next year. That election is becoming important because Amarinder Singh, who has been the chief minister there for more than four years, has left the Congress and formed a new party in alliance with the BJP.
In the 2016 Punjab elections, the Congress won six of the 117 seats, ousting the 10-year-old Shiromani Akali Dal and the BJP-led coalition government. Up is the second largest team in Punjab at the moment. They have 20 seats. The Shiromani Akali Dal has 15 seats and the BJP has three.
