Amarinder Singh Announces Alliance With BJP, Seat Sharing Talks On

Amarinder Singh met the BJP’s Punjab in-charge Ganjendra Singh Shekhawat

Amarinder Singh today announced an alliance with the BJP for the Punjab election, a move that was widely anticipated after he quit the Congress last month.

The former Punjab Chief Minister made the announcement after meeting with the BJP leadership in Delhi.

“Our alliance (with BJP) is confirmed. Only seat-sharing talks are going on. We will see who will contest where – our criteria for seat selection is purely winnability,” said Amarinder Singh.
