Amarinder Singh says meet with Amit Shah on farm issues amid switch buzz

Captain Amarinder Singh's hour-long meeting with Home Minister Amit Shah on Wednesday evening set off the speculation about former Punjab CM changing team

Captain Amarinder Singh's hour-long meeting with Home Minister Amit Shah on Wednesday evening set off the speculation about former Punjab CM changing team.

The former Punjab CM, who is bitter with Congress after his humiliating exit from the CM post, had earlier said that he will keep his options open.

For the record, however, Captain said that the meeting with Shah was on farmer issues.

"Met Union Home Minister Amit Shah ji in Delhi. Discussed the prolonged farmer's agitation against Farm Laws and urged him to resolve the crisis urgently with the repeal of the laws and guarantee MSP, besides supporting Punjab in crop diversification," Singh tweeted with the hashtag #NoFarmersNoFood.

The Congress lashed out at Union Home Minister shortly after the meeting, saying Amit Shah is furious that a Dalit has been chosen as Chief Minister and is keen on revenge on Punjab.

The speculation around Singh switching camps stemmed from his remarks after quitting that he would "exercise his options when the time comes" and that he would take a decision after talking to "friends". He also indicated that his age was not a hurdle, saying "You can be old at 40 and young at 80".
