Won't stay in Congress, but not joining BJP: Captain Amarinder Singh
 
New Delhi, Captain Amarinder Singh on Thursday said he will not join the BJP, but would not remain in the Congress either, putting to rest speculations that had been going to join the former after resigning as the Punjab chief minister.

The former Punjab chief minister, who has been in Delhi since Tuesday and went back to Chandigarh on Thursday evening, met Home Minister Amit Shah and National Security Advisor Ajit Doval during his visit, which was described by his media advisor as a "personal visit".

Talking to media in Chandigarh, he said he will not stay in Congress, but also clarified he was not joining the BJP.

"I am not going to remain in Congress, I am not joining the BJP," Singh said.

Asked about his meeting with Doval, he said, "Doval is our NSA, I discussed matters related to security, I am seeing what is happening in Punjab. Drones are coming every day."

On a question whether he will launch his own party, Singh said, "I will tell you later".

He also said Navjot Singh Sidhu is not the right person for Punjab, and said, "wherever he fights from I will not let him win."

He slammed him for interfering in the state government's decision.

"Sidhu's job is to run the party, Channi's job is to run the government. I have been PCC president, and chief minister, the decision has to be taken by Channi not Sidhu," said, adding that deciding appointments was not the job of the party chief.

Singh was in Delhi amid speculations of him joining the BJP, had met the Home Minister at his residence on Wednesday evening. The meeting lasted for around 45 minutes.

He later tweeted that he had met the Home Minister to discuss the farmers' protests.

Singh had resigned as the Punjab CM on September 18 saying that he was feeling "humiliated".

Soon after he launched an attack at Navjot Singh Sidhu, and said he should not be made the chief minister of Punjab, a border state. Singh had alleged that Sidhu is a "friend of Pakistan", and said him being in the top position in the state may lead to a security threat for the country.

The Congress eventually chose Charanjit Singh Channi for the post of chief minister.
