Former Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh who quit his post ten days ago citing ‘humilation’ by the Congress leadership, on Wednesday called on Union Home Minister Amit Shah at the latter’s residence in Delhi, with sources close to him saying that ‘all his options are open’, adding fire to rumours of him joining the BJP.
Amarinder reached the Shah residence around 6 pm and the meeting lasted for almost an hour, sources said. Those close to him called it a merely ‘courtesy call’.
The miffed former CM reached Delhi on Tuesday amid speculation about his future course of action, in the light of the ‘treatment’ meted out to him that led to him ultimately stepping down as the Punjab chief minister. This is his first visit to the national capital after he resigned on September 18.
Sources told CNN-News18 that Amarinder will also discuss farmers’ issues with Shah.
