The BJP has seemingly engaged Capt Amarinder Singh to obliterate Congress in Punjab: Bir Devinder Singh

CHANDIGARH: Bir Devinder Singh former Deputy Speaker of Punjab Vidhan Sabha today made a scathing attack on former Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh on his relations with BJP.

In a statement issued here Bir Devinder Singh said that in the backdrop of unprecedented backlash of the farm laws and assuming the rout of the BJP in Punjab, the top-notch of the BJP has seemingly engaged Capt. Amarinder Singh to obliterate Congress in Punjab.

He stated that his (Amarinder's) sharp attack on Gandhi siblings, painting Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Vadra in poor light, by calling them naïve and inexperienced, is any indication that the estranged Captain has already begun to work on his plan. Since Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Vadra are very active on the ground and also running the affairs of the congress which is why the sulking Captain is selectively targeting both of them.

Former Deputy Speaker said that the Congress High Command should be extremely cautious and rigorously watchful of each and every move of Capt. Amarinder Singh. There is an old proverb, that ‘Give the Devil his due’, meaning thereby that gives credit to what is good in a disagreeable or disliked person.

He added, "As I know Capt. Amarinder Singh for more than 50 years, I can say on the basis of my psycho- analysis of his personality; that he is an ‘evil genius’ and much cleverer than the Italian diplomat Niccolo Machiavelli, who lived during the Renaissance and is best known for his political treatise The Prince, written in 1513. In this book he has sharply outlined the art of conspiracies and methodologies to envision and implement the ‘Palace Intrigues’ in order to outmaneuver rivals, in the pursuit of powers".

As a matter of fact, Capt Amarinder Singh was never a ‘Maharaja’ but certainly a ‘Prince’ in line to succeed his father Maharaja Yadavindra Singh of the erstwhile Patiala State, had India not succeeded to win freedom in 1947.

Bir Devinder said, as a keen observer of the History of the Princely States, he was of the view that the Princes and the Princesses had no respect for moral values and Diwan Jarmani Dass’s dissertations stand testimony to this assertion, as an irrefutable evidence till date. He has narrated the captivating true stories with illustrations of the life of the ‘Maharajas’, which is full of intrigues, adventures, desires and romance in the palaces of the erstwhile Maharajas. The stories of love and betrayals more pertinently continue to be retold to generation after generations.

He said he believed Capt. Amarinder Singh, as an erstwhile Prince of the Patiala State had plenty of unfulfilled desires of all genera, which he could not fulfill, because of the fall of the ‘Royal Dynasty’ when he was too young, but the genes of the ‘Royal Blood’ impelled him to resort to senseless adventurism with reckless ‘Royal hubris’, to satisfy his desires, at all costs no matter what it cost to the State exchequer.
Irrespective of the applied ethics of Governance, he created an awkwardly unwieldy paraphernalia of the CMO around him, having no duty or accountability and without worrying for its cost-effectiveness and long-term implications. He lavishly showered the status of Minister to his so many courtiers, who have made no contribution to the development of the State, and ironically enough, the number of such ‘parasites’, was larger than the strength of the State Cabinet. His misplaced illusions about his own sensational aura and extravagant governance has completely destroyed Punjab by all means, beyond redemption in the nearest future.
