Amarinder Singh To Float New Party, May Ally With BJP In Punjab Assembly Polls

New Delhi: Former Punjab chief minister Amarinder Singh announced on Tuesday that he would form a new political party and provided the farmers’ protest gets resolved, he would consider a “seat arrangement” with the BJP ahead of the next year’s Assembly Elections.

Last month, Singh had ruled out the possibility of joining the BJP after his meeting with Home Minister Amit Shah set off a huge buzz. But Singh said that they had just discussed the farmers’ protest.

The former CM’s media advisor Raveen Thukral quoted him as saying in a series of tweets on Tuesday evening. “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,” Thukral tweeted.

“Hopeful of a seat arrangement with @BJP4India in 2022 Punjab Assembly polls if #FarmersProtest is resolved in farmers’ interest. Also looking at alliance with like-minded parties such as breakaway Akali groups, particularly Dhindsa & Brahmpura factions,” another tweet read.

Singh hasn’t quit Congress officially yet. Punjab’s cabinet minister Pargat Singh said, “I had already said that the Captain is allied with BJP and Akali Dal, he used to get his agenda from the BJP.”
