Former Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh has announced that the upcoming Assembly elections will be his last elections.

A day after Navjot Singh Sidhu joined the Congress, former Chief Minister of Punjab and Congress leader, Captain Amarinder Singh defended Sidhu saying that there was no big deal in him joining the party. Commenting on Sidhu’s “Ghar Wapsi” remark, Amarinder Singh said that it was “Ghar Wapsi” for him because his father was from the party.

He also asserted that it was his last election and he would indeed defeat the Badals on their home turf.  Navjot Singh Sidhu who formally joined the Congress Party while speaking about his relation and alleged spat with Capt Amarinder Singh, Sidhu said, “that if two nations can resolves their issues why can’t two individuals.”

Meanwhile, Parkash Singh Badal took a jibe at Sidhu and said, “These are all migratory birds. The people of Punjab are aware who worked for them.” Sidhu had asserted that he was a born Congressman and was only going back to his roots. He further urged the Badals to “run” as the people of the state is bracing themselves for a new government.
