Chandigarh: Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee president Amarinder Singh on Saturday criticised Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal`s presence at the fast of Gujarat Chief Minister Narender Modi alleging it only "betrayed his (Badal`s) double standards" in politics.
In a statement here, Amarinder said it also reflected Badal`s "desperation" to cling to BJP in whatever circumstances and whichever leadership in view of coming
assembly elections in Punjab.
The former chief minister asked Badal with what face he had gone to attend Modi`s Sadbhavna fast, which in itself is just a "political gimmick".
While Modi`s fast is just a political gimmick, Badal`s presence there is doubly so", he charged.
