Capt Amarinder Singh has formally joined the BJP and had informally and internally joined the BJP long ago but today the former Chief Minister has let the cat out of the bag by announcing formation of a new party and negotiating seats with the BJP, Deputy Chief Minister Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa said in a statement.
Randhawa said that Capt Amarinder had stabbed back not only the Congress party but also the farmers and all Punjabis who had been struggling for the last 11 months. He said that Amarinder Singh had forgotten the sacrifices of the farmers who had lost their lives during the farmers' struggle even before he joined the BJP.
The senior Congress leader said the former CM has donned the colors of BJP as he is supporting BJP government’s decision regarding BSF.
"He is openly supporting the decision to occupy half of Punjab, from which it is clear that he now has a vested interest", said Randhawa adding with the politically suicidal step.
Capt Amarinder is throwing his entire life's earnings into the well, Randhawa said, adding that even the arguments put forward by Amarinder could not justify his decision. The argument put forward by the former CM that drones can come up to 30 km, then fighter jets and helicopters can come up to 200 km, does not hold ground.
