Captain Amarinder Singh to float his political outfit soon

Published

Chandigarh: Captain Amarinder Singh may float his own outfit ahead of elections in Punjab which are to be held early next year. After a slew of meetings with the senior BJP leader and Union Home Minister Amit Shah and National Security Advisor Ajit Dobhal, Captain Singh is able to apparently sense the matter that floating a new party is a better option than joining the BJP.

Speculation is rife that some Congress leaders including 20 odd MLAs are in touch with Captain Singh and are likely to join his new party. Singh is also likely to consult some of the farmer leaders of Punjab. It was also speculated that he was joining the BJP till he clarified the issue.

A day after meeting Home Minister Amit Shah which triggered speculation of his joining the BJP, Singh said he would leave the Congress as he had been “utterly humiliated” and was not trusted. “I will not join BJP (but) I will not stay in the Congress party,” the 79-year-old leader said, adding that he was still thinking through his options in the interest of Punjab as security of the state was the predominant priority for him. He had resigned as chief minister on September 18 after accusing the Congress of humiliating him.

“I will not be treated in this humiliating manner…I will not take such insults,” he said, adding that his principles and beliefs do not allow him to stay in the Congress any longer. Amarinder Singh’s exit has plunged the state and the grand old party in a deep crisis as Punjab was one of the few states where the Congress government seemed to be stable since last elections, without much rumblings.

A political analyst from Punjab Gaurav Walia said that Captain Amrinder may contest election separately. If the BJP and Amrinder Singh get respectable seats and are in position to form the government, they may join hands. Why I am saying that Captain Amrinder Singh has a chance to fare well because, Aam Aadmi Party which was one of the favourites to form the government in the last election is discredited further due to anti-incumbency against its MLAs.”

Walia said, “AAP doesn’t have much to offer for people of Punjab and the lone MP from Punjab wants him to be declared as chief ministerial candidate but Arvind Kejriwal does not want that. So, the voters are confused in the state.” Sources said that protest against farm laws are impacting many things in the country and every politician is treading very cautiously.

Call me “Dada”, not “Sir”, Tripura CM Biplab Kumar Deb to employees

Published

Agartala: In what appears to be a step to boost the morale of the government employees, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb on Sunday asked the government employees to call him “Dada” instead of “Sir”. “Call me Dada, not sir. It enhances the warmth of the relationship”, Deb told a gathering of government employees.

Deb exhorted the government employees of the state especially ASHA and Anganwadi workers of the state asking them not to dishearten as the state government was eager to improve their pay structure.

“I salute the ASHA and Anganwadi workers of my state. The level of dedication that my sisters have shown during the pandemic period deserved applause. I know, they want to hear good news from me and I am assuring you all that this government will not disappoint anyone”, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb told a gathering of government employees at Badharghat sports school field organized by Vivekananda Vicha Manch (VVM).

VVM has emerged as a big platform of government employees, of late, and Sunday’s public rally was its first big gathering to thank the Chief Minister for the series of steps his government took for the welfare of the employees.

“I know what challenges you people are facing. Nothing is hidden in front of me. I am assuring you all everything will be taken care of in the due course of time”, he added.  Lauding the efforts of government employees Deb said, without them no government office can function.

“Due to the efforts of government employees, people can access the benefits of the state sponsored welfare schemes. But, for a prolonged period the employees did not get their right to do something freely. They were trapped in the clutches of unions. In the previous regime, Left sponsored unions used to enjoy supreme power which had reduced the whole work culture of the state to tatters. In 2018, you people showed courage and voted BJP to power”, said Deb.

“Despite fund constraints, the state government is positively working on the issues of DA and other factors pertaining to the interest of the government employees. Our government has already addressed a number of issues related to financial benefits. The ad-hoc promotion, increment for Group D, Group C employees, regularization of SSA teachers, seventh pay scale, UGC scale for professors, special benefit for LTC are to name a few. All these indicate what we want to do and we shall do what we promise”, the Chief Minister said.

The Chief Minister also asked the officials not to call him “sir” suggesting them to refer to him as “Dada” as it makes the relationship stronger and cherished. The Chief Minister also distributed clothes among children of Badharghat sports school during the programme. State BJP President Manik Saha, Minister Ram Prasad Paul, Minister Sushanta Chowdhury, MLA Mimi Majumder, state BJP Vice President and president of Vivekananda Vichar Manch Rajib Bhattacharjee also spoke on the occasion.
