Amarinder Singh, the former Punjab Chief Minister, is preparing to launch his own political party. On Wednesday, Singh is expected to make an announcement about forming a new political party, according to sources.

Singh has scheduled a press conference for tomorrow in Chandigarh, sparking curiosity about his next move.

Amarinder Singh resigned from the Congress last month after the party’s leadership requested him to relinquish his position as Chief Minister. On the top job, Singh was succeeded by Charanjit Singh Channi. In the midst of a power struggle with Navjot Singh Sidhu, he resigned.

Amarinder Singh, who had faced an unceremonious exit from the state government, has been under attack from several Congress leaders after he met Union Home Minister Amit Shah in Delhi last month. He had then hinted at floating a new party in Punjab ahead of the next year’s Assembly polls and said that he could ally with the BJP if the ongoing farmers’ issue is resolved.

Amarinder has maintained that Congress has damaged its own interests by not trusting him and giving the party into the hands of an ‘unstable person’ like Navjot Singh Sidhu. Notably, Amarinder and Sidhu were at loggerheads ever since the latter was divested of the local government and tourism portfolios.
