Chandigarh: Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC) president Captain Amarinder Singh said on Sunday that the next Assembly elections in Punjab was going to be a fight between him and Arvind Kejriwal.
A week before Delhi Chief Minister is due to kickstart the Aam Aadmi Party’s campaign for the Assembly polls in Punjab, the Congress leader said in an interview to The Hindu, that frustration among the youth had made the people of the state desperate in its search for an alternative.
The AAP leader is going to hold a rally at Muktasar. The Assembly polls is due in early 2017 in Punjab.
“The AAP is a phenomenon that I didn’t expect to do well in the general election, but I think it was a case of total frustration in the younger element,” he was quoted by the Daily as saying.
He further said that the Akalis were totally out of the race and "it’s between us and the AAP."
However, Singh was sure that the the Congress would beat AAP because "the latter had no face or programme to offer".
“Just look at what the CM (Kejriwal) is doing in Delhi, whenever he can’t solve a problem, he blames the government or Arun Jaitley or Prime Minister Narendra] Modi," Singh said, as per the Daily.
