Capt Amarinder to lead Congress in 2022 Punjab polls: Sunil Jakhar

Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee (PPCC) president Sunil Jakhar on Monday said Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh would lead the party in the 2022 assembly polls, as the people of the state had reposed their faith in his leadership with their landslide verdict in Congress’ favour in the recent civic polls.

While participating in the event for the launch of various developmental projects worth Rs 1,087 crores by the chief minister, under the Smart City and AMRUT schemes, Jakhar said, “The Congress party’s sweeping victory in the civic polls has not only revalidated Capt Amarinder’s leadership in the state but was an endorsement of the faith of Punjabis in his future leadership also.”

He said the state Congress had already launched mission “#Captainfor2022”, and the next elections would be fought under his leadership.

Lauding the chief minister, Jakhar said Capt Amarinder had led the state in very difficult times and the people were well aware of his massive contribution.

“Punjab is perhaps facing its worst ever crisis – COVID-19, farmers’ unrest due to the black farm laws, coupled with an unfriendly Union government – and only Capt Amarinder Singh had the vision and leadership qualities to the steer the state out of it,”  he said.
