Chandigarh, September 18
A day after the high command hurriedly called a CLP meeting, Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh has reportedly expressed his ‘resentment’ at the ‘humiliation’ meted out to him by the senior party leadership.
Though the Punjab Chief Minister had gone incommunicado, sources close to him said that he had called senior party leaders like Kamal Nath and Manish Tewari and made obvious his ‘angst’ at the way developments had taken place in the past 24 hours.
“He is angry at this kind of humiliation. At midnight you call a CLP; it’s as if some kind of a secret operation is taking place,’’ commented a source close to the CM.
Sources close to him, however, denied the reports that the high command had asked him to step down.
Sources said the CM is reaching his Sector 2 residence to meet party MLAs ahead of going for the CLP meeting. It is believed that the CM camp may be planning a counter-offensive ahead of the CLP meeting.
