Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh on Tuesday, September 24, said he “cannot think of quitting” as long as Punjab people need him. The response came to a question asked to the chief minister in an interview by a media organisation.
To a question, if he will contest the next elections, Singh said, “As I have said earlier, I cannot think of quitting as long as Punjab people need me. When I took over as the Chief Minister for my second term in 2017, I promised to wipe tears from the eyes of each and every person in the state. And I will not give up till I have done that. Punjab and its people suffered for 10 years under the SAD-BJP rule.”
“It is my commitment that I will wipe even the memories of those dark years and restore the state’s No. 1 position. If that means contesting the next Assembly polls and leading the state for another term (maybe even more), so be it, as long as I have the physical and mental capabilities to work for the people.”
