Amarinder Singh meets NSA Ajit Doval a day after calling on Amit Shah

New Delhi/IBNS: Amid the political turmoil in the northern state of Punjab, former state Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh Thursday met National Security Adviser (NSA) Ajit Doval, a day after calling on Union Home Minister and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) strongman Amit Shah.

Singh met the two in the consecutive days in the backdrop of his worsened relation with his party, Congress.

The former Chief Minister turned rebel after he was asked to step down by the top brass followed by the appointment of a Dalit leader to the top post.

Punjab got its first Dalit Chief Minister in the form of Charanjit Singh Channi, who happens to be close to Singh's rival in the Congress, Navjot Singh Sidhu.

Singh's equation with the Congress took its first hit when Sidhu was picked as the Punjab unit chief.

However, taking the top brass to a complete surprise, Sidhu Tuesday resigned as the state president, plunging the Congress into a deep political crisis in the state.

According to reports, Sidhu was upset over a few recent appointments and cabinet reshuffling.

Now the situation once again turned ugly for the Punjab Congress as the state will head to assembly polls early 2022.
