Amarinder Singh's career will end after LS polls: Sukhbir

Shiromani Akali Dal president Sukhbir Singh Badal accused Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh of 'reneging' on poll promises and claimed the Congress leader's career will end after his party loses the Lok Sabha elections.

Sukhbir also dared Amarinder to make his performance a poll plank in the Lok Sabha elections.

"This election will see the end of Amarinder's career and he knows it. That is why he has already started naming his successors so that he can have a man of his choice still in saddle after he is thrown out," Sukhbir said in a statement.

"Captain sahib actually wants someone dependent on him to succeed him. But only one thing is certain at this stage and that is that Amarinder will not remain the CM after the Congress debacle in Punjab in these elections and this will draw curtains on his political career. Hence, there is desperation in his outbursts against Akalis," the SAD chief added.
