Amarinder Singh didn't agree to provide free electricity to poor: Rahul Gandhi on Captain's removal as CM

Fatehgarh Sahib/Punjab/IBNS: Ahead of the Punjab Assembly elections, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Thursday said former chief minister Captain Amarinder Singh was removed from his post because he did not agree to provide free electricity to the poor.
 
Addressing a public rally here, Rahul Gandhi said, "I will tell you why Captain Amarinder Singh was removed as the Chief Minister of Punjab. It was because he did not agree to provide free electricity to the poor people. He said I have a contract with the power supplying companies."
On the issue of drugs menace in the state, the Congress MP said, "I kept saying drugs are a threat to the country. I am saying this again, Punjab is not a state where experiments should be done."
"Development and growth will be meaningless in Punjab if drugs continue to destroy lives of youth here," he added.
 
The polling in Punjab will take place in a single phase on Feb 20. The votes will be counted on March 10.
