If a compromise is reached to resolve the farmers’ strike, an alliance with the BJP will be considered in next year’s assembly elections, he said.
New Delhi: Former Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh, who has distanced himself from the Congress leadership, is forming a new party. He made the announcement on Tuesday. He said an alliance with the BJP would be considered in next year’s assembly elections if a compromise is reached to resolve the farmers’ strike.
The captain, who has been at loggerheads with the Congress leadership since the resignation of the chief minister, arrived in Delhi last month to meet Union Home Minister Amit Shah. However, he ruled out the possibility of collaborating with the BJP. He explained that only the peasant struggle was discussed.
Amarinder’s media adviser Ranveen Thukral released the tweets yesterday, indicating his political stance. If the strike is resolved in the interest of the farmers, sharing of seats with the BJP will be considered. Ranveen Thukral said he would work with like-minded parties to escape the clutches of the Akali groups.
