Former Punjab CM Captain Amarinder Singh will join BJP today. He will also merge his party Punjab Lok Congress with BJP. Along with Captain, son Ran Inder Singh, daughter Jai Inder Kaur, former MLA from Muktsar Karan Kaur and former MLA from Bhadaur, Nirmal Singh will also join BJP. Before this, many of Captain's colleagues have joined BJP.
Captain Amarinder Singh can get important responsibility after joining BJP. Actually BJP is busy in strengthening the organization in Punjab and at this time the tenure of Punjab BJP state chief Captain Ashwani Sharma is about to end. That is why it is being said that apart from Amarinder, his colleagues can also be entrusted with important responsibility.
Captain Amarinder Singh had quit the Congress last year after a confrontation with Navjot Singh Sidhu and also resigned from the post of Punjab CM. After this he formed his own party 'Punjab Lok Congress' (PLC). After this, he entered the elections in the Punjab Assembly elections held in February in alliance with the BJP, but he did not win any candidate in the state and he could not even save his Patiala seat.
Captain Amarinder had a meeting with Union Home Minister Amit Shah in Delhi for about a quarter of an hour. Since then there was speculation that Captain would merge his party with the BJP. However, at that time the Captain had said on the questions of merger that these were just speculations. After this the Captain had a meeting with PM Modi, after which the Captain had said that we had a discussion on many issues and the country has always been and will be paramount for both of us.
