Amarinder Singh, Former Chief Minister of Punjab expects to unite his PLC

Captain Amarinder Singh, the 80-year-old former chief minister of Punjab who underwent spinal surgery in London, met Union Home Minister Amit Shah last week.

After a protracted dispute with the then-state party chief Navjot Singh Sidhu, Amarinder, a former Congress veteran, resigned from the grand old party in early November of last year, 1.5 months after it replaced him as the chief minister with Charanjit Singh Channi.

Prior to the February 20 Punjab Assembly elections, Amarinder floated the PLC after leaving Congress. The BJP ran on 65 seats, the PLC on 37 (with some candidates preferring to run under the BJP symbol), and the SAD (Sanyukt) on 15 seats, in accordance with their seat-sharing agreement.

Every PLC candidate finished dead last in the polls, including Amarinder, who lost his stronghold of Patiala. Every PLC candidate finished dead last in the polls, including Amarinder, who lost his stronghold of Patiala.

The SAD (Sanyukt), led by former Rajya Sabha member Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa, failed to win any seats, while the BJP succeeded in winning two. The Aam Aadmi Party triumphed in the elections, destroying the Congress in the process.

After Amarinder’s surgery on June 27, Prime Minister Narendra Modi called to check on his health. “It was just a call to inquire about the well-being of Captain Sahib,” He spoke.

The merger of the PLC and the BJP had already been decided before Amarinder left for London, according to BJP national executive member Harjit Grewal, who had previously spoken to The Indian Express.
