New Delhi: Former Punjab CM Amarinder Singh has lambasted his intra-party foe Navjot Singh Sidhu for being an “immature person” who is only good at “theatrics”.
“Sidhu is good at creating a scene. He can do what he did in Kapil Sharma’s show and get a crowd, but he is not a serious guy. How can a non-serious person take serious, major decisions in the running of a party and the state government? He can only do theatrics,” Amrinder said in an interview to NDTV on Thursday.
“Sidhu is an immature person. He is not a team player. He is a loner. How will he handle the Punjab Congress as its chief? For that you need to be a team player, which Sidhu is not,” he added.
The former CM categorically said that he is going to quit the Congress, but won’t join the BJP.
“So far I am in the Congress, but I will not remain in the Congress. I have already made my position very clear. But I am not joining the BJP,” he said.
Amrinder also predicted doom for the Congress in the Punjab Assembly polls due early next year. “The Congress is going downhill. In the current scenario, we see in a recent survey done by the Congress between July and September that the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is going up and the Congress is going down,” he said.
