Captain Amarinder Singh, who has resigned as the Chief Minister of Punjab, on Tuesday announced that he will soon form his own political party. Captain’s media advisor Raveen Thukral tweeted that a new team would be announced soon to serve the interests of Punjab and its people including farmers. The captain has also spoken of a conditional alliance with the BJP. The captain had given indications of forming a new party only after he was removed from the post of CM.
The former CM said he would consider sharing seats with the BJP if the ongoing dispute over all three agriculture laws is resolved in the interest of farmers before the Punjab Assembly elections due early next year. The captain said that he is also looking at the possibility of an alliance with like-minded parties such as the separated Akali groups, especially the Dhindsa and Brahmapura factions.
‘I will not rest till I secure Punjab’
Amarinder Singh said- ‘I will not rest until I secure the future of my people and my state. Punjab needs political stability and protection from internal and external threats. I promise my people that I will do whatever is at stake today to ensure its peace and security.

Announced to leave Congress on 30 September
It is worth noting that on September 30, after stepping down from the post of CM, Captain has announced to leave the Congress. Amarinder had also said that he was not joining the BJP. Since then there was speculation that he might launch his new party soon. Amarinder Singh had resigned from the post of Punjab Congress CM on 18 September. In a conversation with a TV news channel, Amarinder had said, ‘I am still in Congress but will not be in the future. I have already made my position clear that I will not be treated like this. I have been in Congress for 50 years. I told that everyone knows that I have my own opinion, my own principles.’

‘I am doubting my credibility after 50 years’
Expressing his displeasure, Amarinder Singh had said, ‘The way I was treated inside the Congress, at 10.30, the high command calls me to resign. I didn’t ask even once why, I immediately wrote my resignation and submitted it to the governor at 4 o’clock. The observers who came called everyone but no one in the CM house went. If my credibility is being doubted after 50 years, then there is nothing left.
