Said, why Congress High Command is silent and not expelling Captain, who is speaking language of BJP

Chandigarh, October 27 : Hitting out at former Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh following his announcement of forming a new party and backing the BSF’s jurisdiction extension in Punjab, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Punjab affairs in-charge and MLA from Delhi, Jarnail Singh raised a question on the Congress stating why the Congress High Command was silent and not expelling Captain, who was speaking the language of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

In a statement issued from the party headquarters here on Wednesday, Jarnail Singh said Capt Amarinder, who is speaking in favor of the BJP today; is doing it with the consent of Congress. “Capt Amarinder Singh is the proof of the Congress and the BJP’s double-standard. The Congress and the BJP are working in collusion and the Akali Dal Badal is also part of the same group,” he said.

Taking a dig at Captain, Jarnail Singh said, “Whatever party Captain will form, it will be a destruction, not the development of Punjab.” The AAP leader further said that the people of Punjab had witnessed the false promises and works of Capt Amarinder Singh for four-and-a-half years; only then today Captain is out of power. He said that Congress cannot put everything on Captain as the Congress itself was equally responsible.

Jarnail Singh said that Captain was trying to establish a political footing in the name of farmers, but in reality, has nothing to do with them. He has not even met the farmers till date and his relationship was only with Modi and Amit Shah; on whose orders he was doing everything during his tenure as the CM, he asserted. “All that the Aam Aadmi Party has been saying for a long time that Captain is working in collusion with Modi and the central government and was obeying their orders; has been exposed today,” he added.

Further lashing out at Captain, Jarnail Singh said that the former Congress Chief Minister, who became the spokesperson of the BJP on the extension of BSF jurisdiction; was the one behind bringing the same through the central government.
