Amarinder rubbishes claims of meeting Gandhis


Former Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh on Sunday rubbished the claims made by one of the ministers in the state government that he will be meeting Congress interim President Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi and he will return to the party.

“These are malicious and mischievous assumptions apparently made with an ulterior motive,” he said in a statement, while reiterating that “there was no question of his looking back ever”.

The former Chief Minister said he was shaping up his party and giving the finishing touches to the organisational set up. “We are waiting for the registration of our party, Punjab Lok Congress, by the Election Commission of India and the allotment of the party symbol,” he added.
