Capt Amarinder Singh will lose poll deposit, says Punjab Transport Minister

Patiala, November 23

Hours after Capt Amarinder Singh announced his decision to contest from Patiala, Transport Minister Amrinder Singh Raja Warring today said the ex-CM would lose his security deposit this time.

Warring, who was at the PRTC Headquarters here to attend the swearing-in of new Chairman Satvinder Singh, said Capt Amarinder should give up the idea of contesting elections now. “Capt Amarinder has already enjoyed as the CM. He will meet the same fate as before, when he had formed another party. He will lose his security deposit,” he said.

Warring blamed Capt for not giving him the opportunity to work. Comparing him with Channi, Warring said: “Channi doesn’t sleep and Captain never wakes up.”
