LS poll referendum on Amarinder, says Majithia

Senior Akali leader Bikram Singh Majithia on Friday said that Congress candidates will bite the dust in Lok Sabha poll in Punjab.

Mr. Majithia added that several Ministers will be axed and many legislators will not get party tickets if Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh’s “diktat” is implemented in letter and spirit.

“The face of the Council of Ministers in Punjab will be completely changed after May 23 as more than 70% of the Ministers are likely to be axed and two-third of party legislators will not be fielded in the next Assembly polls,” he said.

The ongoing Lok Sabha poll is a “referendum” on the performance of Amarinder Singh’s government and any adverse results are reflection on his performance and not of Ministers or legislators, who have little say in the government, Mr. Majithia said.
