Pb. CM Captain Amarinder Singh Likely To Quit

The Aman Sandesh Times – Chandigarh: Pb CM Capt Amarinder Singh, today called a meeting of MLAs to rally his loyalists, as numbers came into play long before the 117-member Punjab assembly votes early next year. Fifteen of the Congress’s 80 MLAs, including four ministers, attended the meeting.
Sources say over 50 MLAs had written to Sonia Gandhi demanding that Amarinder Singh be replaced as Chief Minister, forcing the party to announce late last night an emergency meeting of MLAs.
The names of three leaders are in circulation to replace him – former Punjab Congress chiefs Sunil Jakhar and Pratap Singh Bajwa, and Beant Singh’s grandson Ravneet Singh Bittu.
