    • Amarinder Singh: Fails big time in Punjab polls, so does party which humiliated' him


      Amarinder Singh failed spectacularly in these assembly elections his new party failed to open its account, his ally BJP fell flat and he failed to even win his own constituency. But there might be some consolation for the former chief minister. The Congress, with which he had a bitter parting just months back, hasn't done too well either in the state, swept by an Aam Aadmi Party wave. The 2022 Punjab Assembly polls came as a fresh challenge for two-time chief minister, who was unseated from his post last year following a bitter power tussle with state Congress chief Navjot Singh Sidhu. The 79-year-old leader said he was humiliated and warned of repercussions then. Soon, he launched the Punjab Lok Congress, contesting the polls in alliance with the BJP, a party whose expansion in the state he had once stalled despite a Narendra Modi wave elsewhere in the Lok Sabha polls.
