Captain Amrinder says, will quit the Congress soon but will not join BJP

New Delhi: Farmers’ protest against three Agriculture Laws seems to have become the biggest hurdle for the former Punjab chief minister Captain Amrinder Singh to join the Bharatiya Janata Party. He has given every speculation the rest by saying that he would not be joining the BJP. But he said that he would be quitting the Congress without mincing the word.

Captain Singh said that so far he is in the Congress, but added that he would not continue to do so. He would not like to be treated like this anymore. “I have not resigned from the Congress yet but I will resign. I am not one of those who decide on a split second. One has to think of various pros and cons before making a decision. But I can tell you I am not going to stay with the Congress. I am not going to join BJP also,” Captain Singh said.

A day after he met with Union Home Minister Amit Shah, former Punjab chief minister, Captain Amarinder Singh called on National Security Advisor Ajit Doval. Following the resignation of Navjot Singh Sidhu as Punjab Congress chief, Captain Singh had said that he was not a stable man fit for a border state. He had also raised fears of unrest in Punjab and added that it could have an impact on the country’s security.

Captain Singh following his meeting with Shah said that he discussed the farm laws, which led to the farmers protesting. There are also speculations galore that Singh may join the BJP. Meanwhile several senior Congress leaders such as Kamal Nath and Ambika Soni have tried to reach out to Captain Singh and pacify him to change his decision. Some of Captain Singh’s loyalists have been inducted into the Punjab Cabinet headed by Charanjit Singh Channi.
Political analysts from Punjab Gaurav Walia said that Captain Singh joining the BJP at this juncture is neither good for the BJP nor for him as it may hurt him politically. But some kind of understanding is possible between the former Punjab chief minister and the BJP. If both the group win sizable number of seats, then a post poll alliance is possible. Even SAD may also pitch in at that time.

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

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.
