Capt. Amarinder Singh decides to quit as Punjab Chief Minster: Report

Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh has decided to put in his resignation ahead of the crucial Congress Legislature Party meeting in Chandigarh on Saturday evening, sources privy to the matter said.

As per details derived from the source, the chief minister will meet the Punjab governor around 4.30 pm and resign from the post. Earlier in the day, Amarinder Singh spoke to Congress president Sonia Gandhi and expressed his anguish and displeasure over his repeated ''humiliation.'' The decision was taken at a meeting of legislators close to him at his official residence in Chandigarh a little after 2 pm, the reports added. Sources said former PCC president Sunil Jakhar, once an associate of the Chief Minister, is among the names being considered for the chief minister’s post.

The AICC gave its nod to the meeting of the CLP, being held at 5 pm at the Punjab Congress office in Chandigarh, after over 50 MLAs wrote to the party high command that Amarinder Singh be replaced as chief minister. The remarkable events in the Punjab Congress are unfolding even as the AICC has determined to convene a meeting of the CLP this evening in the wake of a fresh letter by a section of the MLAs.
