Captain Amarinder Singh now likely to meet PM Narendra Modi today

Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh will meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday. As per the sources, the meet is scheduled for the evening at 6 pm in the national capital. 

The Punjab CM earlier last month wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, urging him to resume dialogue with the agitating farmers and resolve their issues. He stated that there is a danger that powers across the border "may try to play upon the charged emotions of our proud, sincere, and hard-working farmers." Further, he outlined over farmers protesting for the past seven months and their demonstrations have been peaceful more or less. He also had cited "cross-border threat" by ISI-backed groups. Captian has also planned a meet with the Minister for Chemicals and Fertilizers Mansukh Mandaviya at 4 pm on Wednesday, the sources said. 

Amarinder Singh a day before today, also met Union Home Minister Amit Shah and pressed Shah for the immediate repeal of the new farm laws. He expressed his concern over the fear of inimical powers from across the border trying to exploit the resentment and disgruntlement against the government. "While these protests have so far been largely peaceful, one can sense rising tempers, especially as the state moves towards elections in early 2022," Punjab CM said. Not only this, but Singh on Tuesday also met Congress president Sonia Gandhi for the first time amid talk of a possible Cabinet reshuffle in the state after the appointment of Navjot Singh Sidhu.
