The Aam Aadmi Party ( AAP ) Punjab MLAs on Friday met the Governor of Punjab, V.P. Singh Badnore and challenged the Captain Amarinder Singh-led government to prove its majority. The delegation led by senior AAP leader and Leader of Opposition (LoP) Harpal Singh Cheema included MLAs Amarjit Singh Sandoa, Jai Singh Rodi along with leaders Jagtar Singh Sanghera and Malvinder Singh Kang.

Citing the Captain Amarinder Singh government of being in minority, the AAP delegation demanded from the Governor to convene a special session of the Punjab Assembly, directing Captain Amarinder Singh to prove majority in the house. The leaders said if the Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh evades proving his majority in next seven days, then the present government should be dissolved immediately.

Talking to media after meeting the Governor, Harpal Singh Cheema said if the rebel Congressmen wanted to save Punjab, they did not need to visit Dehradun or Delhi; they could only save Punjab by visiting Punjab Raj Bhawan in the capital; provided that they submit their resignation to Governor of Punjab and register a vote of no confidence in the Vidhan Sabha against Captain.

Cheema said that Tripat Rajinder Singh Bajwa, Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa, Charanjit Singh Channi and Sukhbinder Singh Sarkaria, MLAs and Punjab Congress president Navjot Singh Sidhu, who had revolted against their own Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh in the name of saving Punjab should clarify their stand, whether those who are ruining Punjab are with Captain Amarinder Singh or with Punjab and its people; as Harish Rawat has made it clear that Captain Amarinder Singh will remain the Chief Minister and the 2022 elections will be fought under Captain’s leadership.

The AAP leader said that the rebel ministers and legislators who have been part of the mafia rule for four-and-a-half-years have taken the correct stand of late and admitted that the Captain government is a useless and unjust government; which is responsible for the poor condition of Punjab and mafia rule, with failing miserably in fulfilling its election promises.

Jai Singh Rori asked, “Do the rebellious ministers and MLAs accept Captain Amarinder Singh ‘s leadership?” If they accept Captain, then it is clear that they are fighting only for the chair. He said if the rebel ministers and MLAs do not show distrust against the Captain government; they will miss the last chance to wipe off the stain of joining the mafia rule. Amarjit Singh Sandoa , while addressing Captain Amarinder Singh said the Chief Minister had lost the trust and support of his ministers, MLAs and the people of Punjab and was no longer fit to remain as the Chief Minister.
