Also joining the BJP will be roughly 6 to 7 former Punjabi MLAs, the captain’s son Ran Inder Singh, daughter Jai Inder Kaur, and grandson Nirvan Singh.
The fact that Captain Amarinder Singh has been chief minister twice in Punjab. He served as Chief Minister for almost nine and a half years. Congress ousted him from the CM’s chair the previous year, three months before the polls. The Captain then founded Punjab Lok Congress, a new political party. subsequently ran for office in coalition with the BJP, but along with his candidate, the Captain also came in last. BJP only won 2 seats as well. The Punjabi people’s inclination to abandon the old parties is being linked to this setback, nevertheless.
