‘Humiliated’ Congress leader Amarinder Singh meets Amit Shah, sparks speculation about future political move | India News
Amarinder was forced to quit as Punjab CM after a bitter power tussle with Navjot Singh Sidhu, who led a sustained campaign against the veteran Congress leader.
Amarinder later tweeted that he discussed the prolonged farmers’ agitation against the three farm laws with the Union home minister and urged him to resolve the crisis urgently.

However, Amarinder’s meeting with the Union home minister assumes significance as the former Punjab CM has made it clear that “all his political options are open.”
“Future politics is always an option and I will exercise my options when the time comes,” Captain Amarinder Singh had said after stepping down as the chief minister of Punjab.
Amarinder, who had said that he felt “humiliated” by the way Congress removed him, had also made it clear that he would fight back and can make any compromise to ensure that Sidhu did not become the chief minister of the state.
The former CM had cited Sidhu’s close ties with the Pakistani establishment to state that he was “dangerous for the border state.”
He not only slammed Sidhu but also questioned the leadership of Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka.
The veteran Congress leader had then said that the Gandhi siblings were “quite inexperienced” and their advisers were “misguiding” them.
