Punjab Election 2017: This is my last election, will defeat Badal on his home turf, says Capt Amarinder Singh

Punjab Congress president Captain Amarinder Singh on Tuesday said that he will defeat Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) head and Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal on his home turf in his last election, reported ANI.

“This is my last election and I will defeat Badal on his home seat,” Singh said speaking to media. Singh is all set to fight the assembly elections against Badal from Lambi.

The Congress leader also said that there was no big deal behind cricketer-turned-politician Navjot Singh Sidhu joining the party. “He himself said his father was in Congress and that it’s his ‘ghar wapsi’,” Singh added.

Having joined Congress after hectic negotiations, Sidhu on Monday said he was a “born Congressman” who was coming back to his roots and would be ready to work under anybody appointed by the high command and contest from where the party wants him to.

Sidhu also described BJP as Kaikei, who sent Lord Rama to the jungle and Congress as Kaushalya who gave birth to the Lord.

To a question, he said there were no differences with PCC Chief Amarinder Singh and added that when two nations can sort out their problems by sitting across the table why cannot two individuals resolve their differences.

Speaking about SAD candidate Gen JJ Singh, he said, “He was a year junior to me and I know he was a lacklustre and an average general.”
