After the announcement of Captain Amarinder leaving the Congress, now the clarification has been given by the Congress party. Party leader Randeep Singh Surjewala on Saturday claimed that party President Sonia Gandhi did not remove Amarinder Singh from the post of Chief Minister. According to Surejawal, 78 MLAs had demanded the removal of Capt. Surjewala said this at a time when Amarinder Singh, after leaving the Punjab chair recently, said that the party leadership had humiliated him. In place of Amarinder Singh, now the party has made Charanjit Singh Channi as the Chief Minister of Punjab. Last month, Charanjit Singh Channi’s name was stamped in the party’s legislature party meeting.
Congress General Secretary Surejawala said that when a Chief Minister loses the confidence of his MLAs, he should not remain in office. Speaking to the media, Surejawal said, “Out of 79 MLAs of Punjab, 78 had written to change the Chief Minister. If you were being accused of becoming a Dictator, shouldn’t we have changed the CM? 78 MLAs are on one side and one CM on one side and you are not listening to them.
Sonia Gandhi did not remove
Surejawala further said, ‘Sonia Gandhi is the president of the party and she did not take the decision to change the CM in Punjab. Like I told you. 78 MLAs had written about changing the CM. The special thing is that earlier Amarinder Singh had rejected the Congress leadership that he had lost the trust of the MLAs. Captain Amarinder Singh had said that he would leave the Congress as senior leaders were ignoring him.
surrounded the BJP
Surjewala said that this is the first time that a Dalit has become the Chief Minister of Punjab. A new history has been created in Punjab. He also surrounded the BJP and raised the question that if the Congress has made any changes, then what is the problem for the BJP? He also reminded about the change of CMs in Gujarat, Uttarakhand and Karnataka by the BJP.
However, after this statement of Congress leader Surjewala, Captain Amarinder Singh has also retaliated. Captain Amarinder Singh said, ‘Since 2017 I have won all elections in Punjab. The public had not lost faith in me. The entire game was composed by Navjot Singh Sidhu and his associates. Don’t know why those people are still allowing him (Navjot Singh Sidhu) to dictate.
Amarinder Singh said, “The party seems to be inundated with the witty tone of Navjot Singh Sidhu. Next time he will claim that 117 MLAs have written to him. There is such a situation in the party that they cannot even coordinate their lies properly. Senior party leaders are completely disillusioned with the functioning of the party. The truth of the matter was that 43 MLAs who had signed the said letter were forced to do so under pressure.’
