The reported meeting comes at a time when the Punjab Congress is internally split in several factions with a new drama unfolding every day with a few months left before the assembly election. Speculations were rife after Amarinder Singh arrived in the Capital on Tuesday evening but the Captain said he is in New Delhi to vacate Kapurthala House, his Delhi residence. He had also asserted that no political meeting was scheduled in Delhi.

As per reports the meeting went on for around 45 minutes and his car is believed to have left Amit Shah’s residence empty with Amarinder Singh might be travelling with Amit Shah at Shah’s car, though the destination is not yet known. 

Amarinder Singh’s exit from the post of Punjab chief minister was not amicable as the former CM made no attempt to put a lid on his emotions and said that he felt humiliated, insulted by the Congress leadership. At the same time, he did mention that it was not time to hang his boots and hence all eyes are on Captain’s next political move. 

Reports said the meeting between Amarinder Singh and Amit Shah began at 6pm and it is a departure from the earlier meetings between Amarinder and Amit Shah, which used to take place at the office. This is the first meeting between Amarinder Singh and Amit Shah after former’s resign, which may or may not be just a courtesy visit, is taking place at the residence of Amit Shah.
