Chandigarh: Former Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh on October 19, 2021, announced that he would launch his own political party soon.

“The battle for Punjab’s future is on. Will soon announce the launch of my own political party to serve the interests of Punjab & its people, including our farmers who’ve been fighting for their survival for over a year,” Amarinder Singh’s media advisor Raveen Thukral tweeted quoting him.

“Hopeful of a seat arrangement with the BJP in 2022 Punjab Assembly polls if farmers’ protest is resolved in farmers’ interest. Also looking at alliance with like-minded parties such as breakaway Akali groups, particularly Dhindsa and Brahmpura factions,” he added.

Amarinder also hoped that his new party would join hands with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for the 2022 Punjab Assembly elections if the Centre rolls back the three farm laws.

Amarinder was asked by the Congress high-command to resign from the post of Chief Minister over the lobbying by his bête-noire Navjot Singh Sidhu.

He resigned on September 18, 2021, and the Congress made Charanjit Singh Channi as new Chief Minister. (PW News)
