2017 Assembly Polls: SAD fields former Army General J.J. Singh against Captain Amarinder Singh

CHANDIGARH, Punjab—The ruling Shiromani Akali Dal led by Sukhbir Badal has fielded former Indian Army General J.J Singh against the Punjab Congress head Captain Amarinder Singh from Patiala (Urban) constituency. General J.J Singh joined Shiromani Akali Dal on January 7 in the presence its President Sukhbir Badal.

Interacting with media, General J.J Singh claimed that he will oust the Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee head Captain Amarinder Singh from Punjab politics by defeating him with large margin. He added that ballot battle between him and Captain will be a battle between a scion of royalty and soldier’s grandson.

On being asked about the delayed decision of getting into election fray, General J.J Singh said that he would work 18 hours a day while Captain Amarinder Singh works only 6 hours in a day. ‘In this way, I will be working for 66 days while Captain Amarinder Singh will be working for 22 days only’ he added.

Reacting to General J.J Singh’s nomination by Shiromani Akali Dal against him, Captain Amarinder Singh has said that March 11 will be a unique day in history when a General will get apprised of his defeat by a Captain.

The duo will be contesting against Aam Aadmi Party’s Dr. Balbir Singh.

    He needs to be in its cabinet.

    • Judge a man by the company he keeps is an old adage. How then can you claim this Fauju is respectable when he seeks the patronage of the excommunicated Badals? And why should he be an asset to Punjab Government cabinet? What expertise does he bring precisely? He knows how to instigate martial law and is one of those who ‘was only obeying orders’? Yes, I can understand why you are happy for him to join your ranks.
