New Delhi: Union home minister Amit Shah in a big announcement on Saturday said that BJP may enter Punjab Assembly elections in alliance with parties of former Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh and former Akali leader Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa.

While speaking at the Hindustan Times Leadership Summit, the home minister clarified that his party is in talks with both the parties with a positive note and an alliance may be formed ahead of Punjab elections scheduled for 2022.

“We are talking to Captain Saab as well as Dhindsa Saab. It is possible we will have an alliance,” Shah said during the interview. Further adding, he said, “As far as the farmers’ protests are concerned, Prime Minister Narendra Modi showed a big heart to ended the protests. I don’t think there is any issue left in Punjab. Elections in Punjab will be fought on merits.”

Captain Amarinder Singh after quitting Congress launched his own political party in the state. After Singh announced his own party and its decision to contest all 117 seats in the upcoming Punjab Assembly elections, the former Chief Minister also pointed towards a possible tie-up with the BJP, but only if the Central government resolves the ongoing farmers’ issues.

Now, with the union government withdrawing the controversial farm laws, the chances of an alliance between BJP and Captain Amarinder Singh’s party have gained momentum.

On the other hand, the Shiromali Akali Dal deserted the NDA government in Punjab against the three farm laws. However, after PM Modi’s announcement of withdrawal of farm laws, SAD president Sukhbir Singh Badal when asked about re-joining the NDA government, he clearly denied all the possibilities of coming together with the BJP in the Punjab elections.
