As the dates for the Punjab Assembly elections approached, Punjab Lok Congress leader and former Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh met with Union Minister and Punjab BJP in-charge Gajendra Singh Shekhawat. Punjab in-charge Shekhawat said after the meeting that Prime Minister Narendra Modi and party president JP Nadda had already stated that they would fight the elections jointly. Today, I’d like to make it obvious that we’re all in this together. In terms of the seat agreement, it will be communicated at the appropriate time.
Amarinder Singh, on the other hand, stated that we will win 101 percent of elections, and that whenever there is a distribution of seats, the chance of success will be the most important and only criteria. There will be a debate about the seats first, followed by a discussion about the seats. Channi’s announcements, according to Amarinder Singh, take time to materialise. He had not yet assumed the position of Chief Minister, thus he did not know anything. Former Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh had already met with Shekhawat. Amarinder Singh, who founded the new Punjab Lok Congress Party, had previously dined with Shekhawat.
“Respected Captain Amarinder Singh, former Chief Minister of Punjab and founder of Punjab Lok Congress, arrived at Delhi residence today,” Gajendra Singh Shekhawat posted on Ku after the meeting. His discussion reflects his extensive political experience. They want the Punjabi people’s interest. In this sense, we had a lovely discussion. Capt. has a particular place in my heart. The BJP’s top leadership has already stated that we will fight the election together.
The first round of meetings between the BJP and Captain Amarinder Singh on seat sharing began last week. The BJP and Captain Amarinder Singh are attempting to bring Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa’s Shiromani Akali Dal into the alliance.
The BJP is nearly finished with its strategic planning for victory in the Punjab Assembly elections. The draught of the BJP’s alliance with Captain Amarinder Singh and Dhindsa’s party is virtually ready, according to BJP insiders. With the publication of election dates, an official alliance could be formed. Out of 117 seats in Punjab, the BJP can run for 80-85 seats, Captain Amarinder Singh’s party for 20 to 25 seats, and Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa’s party for some seats. The entire partnership will be completed soon.
Captain Amarinder Singh announced his intention to run for assembly elections with the BJP only after founding the ‘Punjab Lok Congress.’ Captain Amarinder Singh was on his way to Delhi last month to meet BJP leader Amit Shah, but the appointment was cancelled owing to unforeseen circumstances. Following this, Amit Shah stated that the BJP would contest the Punjab Assembly elections alongside Captain Amarinder Singh and become the state’s next administration.
In September, Amarinder Singh was forced to resign as Chief Minister of Punjab, after which he left the Congress and founded the Punjab Lok Congress. “And by compromising on seats with Dhindsa sahib, we have complete confidence that we would win in the coming elections…we will form the next government,” Amarinder Singh added.
