Patiala, Nov 2: Former Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh resigned from the Congress party and announced a new party ‘Punjab Lok Congress’.
“I have today sent my resignation to @INCIndia President Ms Sonia Gandhi ji, listing my reasons for the resignation. ‘Punjab Lok Congress’ is the name of the new party. The registration is pending approval with the @ECISVEEP. The party symbol will be approved later,” Amarinder Singh tweeted.
“Sidhu’s only claim to fame was that he would abuse me & my government on a regular basis. I am old enough to be his father but that did not stop him from using the filthiest and most vile language against me both publicly and privately,” Captain wrote in his resignation letter.
