Congress CM Candidate from Punjab

Captain Amarinder Singh has been named as the congress chief ministerial candidate by the party vice president Rahul Gandhi in a rally in Amritsar. Amarinder Singh was initiated in the Congress by Rajiv Gandhi in 1980 and was first elected as the member of Parliament in 1980. However, he resigned from the Congrees and the parliament in a protest against the army action in the golden temple and joined Shiromani Akali Dal.

He went on to become Minister in the state government but due to some difference with Akali Dal left them and floated a group named Shiromani Akali Dal (Panthic). It was merged with the Congress in 1998. He became president of Punjab Pradesh Congress committee two times from 1999 to 2002 and 2010 to 2013. He served as a chief minister of Punjab in 2002. In the last Lok Sabha elections held in 2014, he defeated senior BJP leader Arun Jaitley. Captain Amarinder Singh hails from the royal family of Patiala and has served Indian Army as well.

Punjab Congress Manifesto 2017

Former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh released the Congress party's manifesto for the upcoming Punjab assembly elections in Delhi along with parallel releases in Chandigarh and five other cities in Punjab. He was accompanied at the event by state Congress chief Amarinder Singh besides Rajinder Kaur Bhattal and Ambika Soni. Singh said that the Congress manifesto pointed to a 'tremendous potential' of Punjab in terms of agriculture, manufacturing, services, infrastructure and social services.

He stated that the present SAD-BJP government in the state had failed to make adequate use of this potential. Praising the Congress' CM nominee Amarinder Singh, Manmohan Singh said that Punjab was in bad need of the latter's leadership in order to improve the fiscal situation and that his work is unrivalled in agriculture and manufacture. The Congress manifesto also promises farmers a loan waiver worth Rs 67,000 crore and a job to each of the 55 lakh households. Punjab Congress Vice President and former state Finance Minister Manpreet Badal said that ending the mafia alone would boost revenue generation manifold.
