I didn’t have any info regarding plan of Punjab leaders to quit BJP: Capt Amarinder

Former Punjab CM terms reports baseless and malicious

CHANDIGARH, October 14: Senior Bharatiya Janata Party leader and former Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh today rubbished the reports in a section of media that he had any knowledge of some leaders leaving the party and joining the Congress.
Reacting to the reports that the desertions were planned at his place, Capt Amarinder said, these reports are not only baseless but malicious and were being deliberately circulated to create confusion.
He made it categorically clear that his decision to join the BJP was well thought and irreversible. He said he was committed to the party and the Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the Home Minister Amit Shah and the BJP president JP Nadda for whatever role and duty they assign him.
He said he will be campaigning in the forthcoming assembly elections for the party.
The two time Punjab Chief Minister said, earlier he had always remained in Congress and had left only once on the issue of principle as he was strongly opposed to the Operation Bluestar under which the then government sent the army into Darbar Sahib.
He said it has been his principle in life to never go back on his decision. “Once I take a decision I stand firm about it”, he asserted, while clarifying that there was no question of any second thoughts or letting anyone leave the party, leave aside facilitating it, as has been reported baselessly and maliciously.
