Amarinder Singh all set to join BJP: Bharatiya Janata Party A party that aims to govern for a long duration has to have three basic tenets – Ideology, Committed cadre and Leadership. Since the Jana Sangh, the Bharatiya Janata Party and its precursor have taken a firm stance on this doctrine.
Additionally, visionary leaders like Atal Bihari Vajpayee groomed a bunch of talented youth. These talented youth carried forward the legacy of their senior leadership.
The ideology of nationalism struck a chord with the citizens and has gradually become the largest political party in the world. It has more than 18 crore committed karyakartas.
However, it is still falling short on one key trait, that is, able leadership mainly in the states of West Bengal, Delhi, Punjab and Jammu and Kashmir. With new development, it seems that it is going on an aggressive hunt to fill this crucial gap in Punjab and J&K.
Major churning in Punjab Politics
Post the Punjab assembly election, Congress is missing from the political spectrum. It has completely vacated the opposition space. Its state unit leaders are deserting like there is no tomorrow. Additionally, the Bhagwant Mann government is on patchy wicket with his health Minister Vijay Singla behind bars under serious charges of corruption.
It has failed miserably on the fiscal front with debt piling at new high. Amid all such times of despair, people pin their hope on a credible opposition. The Bharatiya Janata Party which is known for round the clock politics is strongly poised to become the ideological opposition to the misgovernance of Mann-led AAP government.
Reportedly, BJP has got a shot in the arm as Former Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh is all set to join the saffron party on 19th of September. Punjab Lok Congress (PLC) Spokesperson, Pritpal Singh Baliawal, has confirmed media reports of this massive churning in the state politics. He also hinted that in all likelihood PLC will be merged with BJP.

Along with Captain Amarinder Singh, six former Congress leaders, including former MLAs are also set to join the BJP. Earlier, Capt Amarinder had met Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah in New Delhi. There are credible reports that he will be given a key role after his party’s merger with BJP.
Captain Amarinder Singh, who had served twice as Punjab CM, took an unceremoniously exit as Punjab CM in September last year. The Congress high command which was dancing to the tunes of Navjot Singh Sidhu, paid no heed to Captain’s grievances and the party’s tanking popularity.
After quitting the grand old party, Captain Amarinder Singh launched his own political front Punjab Lok Congress. However, it had no time to build a strong cadre base and spread its ideology. It failed to open its tally in an anti-Congress election.
Captain Amarinder Singh – A potential asset for BJP
Captain Amarinder Singh has vast governance experience and has served various Ministerial duties. During the 2017 state assembly election, he steered Congress to success despite the strong Modi wave. He single handedly campaigned for the party and demonstrated his political prowess.
With him, BJP will try to bust the false narrative spun around the saffron party. It has been falsely attributed as a Hindu party and anti-minority and anti-Sikh party.
Along with Captain Amarinder Singh and his committed cadre, BJP will be able to penetrate into the rural areas where it had been facing challenges after the controversies erupted against the three farm laws.
BJP has a strong influence on urban voters and with leaders like Sunil Jhakar and Captain Amarinder Singh; it is all poised to strengthen its state organisational structure. If things go as per their likings, it will be able to find the right keys to its leadership and cadre issues in Punjab.
Apparently, similar things are panning out in Jammu and Kashmir as well. Former J&K CM and Ex-Congress veteran Ghulam Nabi Azad may follow the footsteps of his former colleague Captain Amarinder Singh. Evidently, the disgruntled Ex-Congress leader was politically ostracised by Congress for his camaraderie with PM Modi, which was witnessed during his farewell speech.
PM Modi reminisced his long political friendship and got emotional while praising Ghulam Nabi Azad for his political journey. He has recently announced to launch his own political outfit but, the election time in Jammu and Kashmir Union Territory is around the corner.
Azad being an experienced politician knows that he doesn’t have the luxury of time and has to decide his political future before it’s too late. There is a famous saying; Rome was not built in a day, so it will be foolhardy to hope for a miracle right at the crucial hours of election.
