Chandigarh,Punjab Politics: Suspense still remains regarding the next political move of Captain Amarinder Singh, former Chief Minister of Punjab.Recently, the captain had talked about leaving the Congress, but has not yet formally resigned from the party.However, Amarinder Singh retaliated after the attack by Congress leaders Randeep Surjewala and Punjab Congress in-charge Harish Rawat.He has also asked many questions to the Congress.There are indications that Captain Amarinder may announce his party soon.Along with this, he is also preparing to form a third front for the assembly elections to be held in Punjab early next year.
It is said that he is engaged in discussions with his close leaders and supporters to form a new party.Recently, there was news that he would form a new party by the name of Punjab Vikas Party.Now it is also known that some other names are also being considered.Along with this, according to sources close to the Captain, the former Chief Minister is also preparing to form a third front for the Punjab Assembly elections to be held in 2022.
Along with this, there is a big question that if Captain will form the Third Front, then which parties or groups can be involved in it.Political analysts say that it will be interesting to see whether the new party or front of the captain will be associated with the Bharatiya Janata Party, if so, what will be its nature.Analysts say that even though the captain has met BJP leader Union Home Minister Amit Shah, it is not easy for him to go open with the BJP.Because the farmers' movement has been getting the support of Captain Amarinder and BJP leaders have been accusing him of this.The way farmers have been opposing the BJP in Punjab, it is doubtful that political players like Captain will take the risk of going directly with them.In such a situation, it may also happen that with the important role of the captain, there should be an agreement between the farmers' organizations and the central government on agricultural laws and then an alliance of the captain and the BJP is formed.
Along with this, speculation continues in the political corridors of Punjab regarding the supporters of Captain.The question that arises is how many Congress leaders will go with him on forming a new party.It is also hot that there are about two dozen MLAs out of 80 Congress MLAs from Punjab with Captain Amarinder Singh.In such a situation, Captain Amarinder can pose a threat to the new Charanjit Singh Channi government.
Captain can take a decision on forming a new party by next week
It is being told about Amarinder Singh's new party that its announcement can be made next week.Earlier it was being told that he can announce it on October 2.But this did not happen and sources say that he has postponed the decision to form a new party till next week.
Sources also say that he has considered two or three names for his new party.Out of these, the name of the new party has been decided as 'Punjab Vikas Party', but the final decision is yet to be taken regarding this name.
Before launching the new party, Captain Amarinder Singh will hold a meeting with his close leaders and Sidhu's opponents.Experts say that the Captain now has no option but to enter the election field by forming a new party.However, the possibilities are also being explored whether he should force the current government for floor test by mobilizing two dozen MLAs or show his strength in the assembly elections itself.
Sources also say that Captain Amarinder may have refused to join the BJP, but it is certain that he can not only take the help of the BJP inside the elections but also help the BJP in its seats. .Before this, it also has to be seen that how many MLAs and MPs from Congress can he take with him.Certainly, Congress dissatisfied leaders can go with him as he also knows that being close to Captain, the current leadership of the party will hardly give him a ticket for the next assembly elections.
Political experts also say that in the next assembly elections, the Captain will not only focus on showing the mirror to the Congress high command and preventing Navjot Sidhu from winning.The Captain, who returned from Delhi tour, had said that the Congress high command had insulted him.Along with this, he had reiterated that he should contest the election from wherever Navjot Singh Sidhu, he (Captain) will not let him win.
Captain can form third front in Punjab
Captain Amarinder is preparing to form a third front, in which his party will play an important role.Shiromani Akali Dal (United) President and Rajya Sabha member Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa has also invited the Aam Aadmi Party to join this front.He says that there is every possibility of a third front in Punjab, which can be formed without Akali Dal, Congress and BJP.The people of Punjab want this.If the captain is involved in this, it will be strengthened.The way Captain has attacked the Gandhi family while leaving the post of Chief Minister, it is clear that he is very upset with their behavior.Their main objective is to defeat Navjot Singh Sidhu.At the same time, there is pressure on farmer organizations to contest the assembly elections.However, the organizations have not made any such announcement.There is a lot of discussion about this in the United Kisan Morcha.
