Amrinder Singh is fed up! No not Captain Amarinder Singh, but Indian football team goalie whose name sounds like that of the former Punjab Chief Minister and has inadvertently got caught up in the Punjab Congress crisis.
The footballer has urged mediapersons to stop mistakenly tagging him on social media instead of Captain Amarinder Singh on tweets and posts on social media, where journalists and others are airing their views and speculations on what the former Punjab CM is poised to do next after the state Congress chief and bitter rival Navjot Singh Sidhu unexpectedly resigned.
Taking to Twitter, Amrinder wrote: “Dear News Media, Journalists, I am Amrinder Singh, Goalkeeper of Indian Football Team Flag of India and not the Former Chief Minister of the State Punjab Please stop tagging me.”
Captain Amarinder Singh, too, took to twitter to respond to the sportsperson. The former CM too: “I empathise with you, my young friend. Good luck for your games ahead.”
Meanwhile, Captain Amarinder Singh met National Security Advisor (NSA) Ajit Doval at his residence in New Delhi on Thursday. Captain Amarinder had on Wednesday met Union Home Minister Amit Shah to discuss the ongoing farmers’ agitation and urged him to resolve the crisis by immediately repealing the three farm laws.
Amarinder Singh had resigned as Chief Minister on September 18 and had told the media that the Congress leadership had let him down. He had also taken a dig at Navjot Sidhu over his resignation, saying he is not a “stable man”.
