With only a few months to go for the Punjab Assembly elections 2022, Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh and the Congress party are once again caught between political turmoil. As many as 32 senior Congress leaders from Punjab, including four Cabinet ministers, have opened a revolt against Captain Amarinder Singh.
Stating that they have lost faith in Captain Amarinder Singh, the Congress leaders sought his immediate removal.
Later in the day, a delegation of five leaders --- Pargat Singh, general secretary of the Punjab Congress, and four ministers --- Tript Rajinder Bajwa, Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa, Sukh Sarkaria, and Charanjit Singh Channi --- left for Delhi to meet Congress president Sonia Gandhi at the earliest.
One of the MLAs said today's meeting was held to discuss Punjab’s development issues and unfulfilled poll promises. The MLA said it had been more than four-and-a-half year now, but nothing concrete had been done so far.
