Live Updates: Amarinder Singh Summons Loyalists Ahead Of Big Party Meet

New Delhi:

Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh finds himself increasingly isolated in the state unit with a key meeting of party MLAs called this evening by the Congress. The meeting could spell trouble for Mr Singh, who has been the target of rebel leaders seeking his ouster.

The Chief Minister, say sources, dialled party president Sonia Gandhi, saying he “can’t continue in the party with this kind of humiliation”.

With the meeting, months after a tenuous detente was brokered between Amarinder Singh and his in-house rival Navjot Singh Sidhu, the party has all but announced that Punjab is going the way of Gujarat, where the BJP this week revamped the entire cabinet. Both states will vote next year.

Scenario 2: Amarinder refuses to resign, split in Congress: governor can call for floor test 

Scenario 3: Floor test doesn’t throw up majority: Governor can dissolve house,¬† and ask Amarinder Singh to be caretaker Chief Minister till polls in March

Scenario 4: Governor can cite political instability, farm protests, recommend President’s Rule in Punjab
