“I am a soldier. I will shake the hand that comes towards me, but if a fist is shown I will give that back,” Capt said on Saturday, citing humiliation by the Congress. Considered close to Congress chief Sonia Gandhi, Gehlot said, “Capt Amarinder Singh is a respected Congress leader and I hope he will continue to work with party interest in mind. I am hopeful he will not take any step that can hurt the Congress. He himself said the party made him the CM for 9.5 years and he worked to the best of his ability to serve the party.” — TNS
