Former Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh on Monday met Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar at his official residence.
“This was a simple courtesy meeting with ML Khattar Sahab,” said Captain Amarinder Singh while talking to mediapersons. The meeting comes on a day when a Bill to repeal the three contentious farm laws, against which farmers have been protesting for over a year, was passed by the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha.
As per reports, former Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh is hoping for a seat-sharing arrangement with the BJP for the Punjab Assembly elections scheduled for 2022. He had resigned as the Punjab Chief Minister in September following a tussle with Punjab Congress chief Navjot Singh Sidhu.
Later, Charanjit Singh Channi was announced the Punjab CM. Captain Amarinder Singh has now floated his political party named the Punjab Lok Congress.
