Amarinder Singh is my political mentor : Singla
Sangrur Congress candidate Vijay Inder Singla today said that SAD-BJP government sensing the support for Congress in Punjab have gone berserk and started intimidating and leveling charges against the party workers.
He said that Congress will garner votes in these elections as people know that the ruling alliance has only represented 'mafia's interests and not public's interest in the state till now.
In a statement here, he commented that Captain Amarinder Singh has been his political mentor and he has learnt the ropes of public service initially from his late father Sant Ram Singla and thereafter it was Maharaja Patiala who has been standing with him in his political career and he owes a lot to him in life.
'Where is the question of working against each other in Patiala and Sangrur? We are part of one family," said Mr Singla and remarked that such accusations are only a figment of imagination and Congress is united against the evil designs of Akalis.
The Congress leader observed that AAP only believes in 'dharna', politics and people of Punjab will see through their 'empty' idealism claims (as seen in Delhi) and not waste their valuable franchise on them, and will vote after evaluating each candidate on his capability, credentials and work done.
