Captain Amarinder meets Haryana CM Khattar

Chandigarh: Former Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh on Monday met Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar at his official residence, discussed ongoing farmers protest at the Delhi border.

The meeting comes on a day, Centre repeals controversial farms laws in the Parliament. Both leaders have discussed on farmers issue and MSP for agricultural produce, which farmers are demanding.

 “This was a simple courtesy meeting with Khattar Sahab,” said Singh while talking to reporters.

Singh is hoping for a seat-sharing arrangement with the BJP for the 2022 Punjab Assembly elections.

However, he categorically stated that there was no discussion about politics. It was Amarinder’s first meeting with Khattar after he resigned as Punjab Chief Minister in September following amid a bitter power tussle with Punjab Congress chief Navjot Singh Sidhu.

Charanjit Singh Channi had replaced Singh. After his unceremonious exit, Singh named his political party the Punjab Lok Congress
