NEW DELHI: Former Punjab chief minister Amarinder Singh on Tuesday announced that he will soon launch his own political party.
Amarinder, who was ousted unceremoniously by the Congress, has also said that he is open to alliance with the BJP if the farmers’ protest is resolved by the Centre.
Amarinder had to step down as chief minister of Punjab after a bitter power tussle with Navjot Singh Sidhu, who was appointed Punjab Congress chief by the party high command.
“I will not rest till I can secure the future of my people and my state. Punjab needs political stability and protection from internal and external threats. I promise my people I will do what it takes to ensure its peace and security, which is today at stake,’ the former chief minister said in a post tweeted by his media adviser.
