Captain Amarinder on Wednesday took his battle against the Chief Minister to his home turf of Lambi with the filing of nomination papers and the promise to cook Parkash Singh Badal’s goose in his own backyard.
Launching what he has described as the `grandfather of all battles’, Amarinder, who went to the Badal stronghold of Lambi in a massive procession after filing his nomination at Malout, said he had vowed to wipe Badal from Punjab’s political scene and had come to Lambi to do teach him a lesson for life.
Amarinder said he would teach Badal a lesson for all the atrocities unleashed on the people of the state during the last 10 years, and set an example for all future chief ministers to ensure that they do not abuse their power to victimize the people the way Badal had done.
An aggressive Captain Amarinder, who is fighting his last election, declared that neither Parkash Singh Badal nor his kin would be spared for their wrong doings and for bringing Punjab to such a pathetic situation.
Talking to mediapersons en route Lambi, Captain Amarinder said he would not rest till he had cooked Badal’s goose.
The PPCC president, who had on Tuesday filed his nomination papers from Patiala while exhorting the people there to take care of his home town while he takes on Badal, said he would give the thrashing of a lifetime to the chief minister in Lambi.
Asserting that the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) was nowhere on the Punjab poll scene, Captain Amarinder accused its leader Arvind Kejriwal of spreading false propaganda that the anti-incumbency vote against the Shiromani Akali Dal would get divided. The Congress would win hands down, and will make a clean sweep of these elections, declared Captain Amarinder.
