Amritsar, June 10

Amid political crisis in the state Congress, a poster war has erupted to claim supremacy. In the latest development, posters in favour of Punjab CM Capt Amarinder Singh have emerged in parts of Amritsar. On the other hand, Navjot Singh Sidhu’s posters were spotted in Capt Amarinder’s home turf Patiala.

Titled as ‘Punjab Da Ik Hi Captain’ with hashtag ‘Captain for 2022’, the big hoardings have Capt Amarinder’s picture with Mayor Karamjit Singh Rintu’s image alongside. Another banner ‘Captain Ik Hi hunda Hai’ was also seen with the picture of Capt Amarinder and Youth Congress president Brinder Singh Dhillon.

These hoardings were spotted on the main Bhandari Bridge, Crystal Chowk, bus stand and in other parts of the holy city. “It is just a gesture of the local Congress workers expressing their feelings for Capt Amarinder Singh,” said the Mayor. It is learnt that identical hoardings favouring Capt Amarinder were spotted in Patiala too.

In Patiala, the posters depicted that the entire Punjab was with Sidhu. The posters termed him as the ‘voice of farmers’ who stood against the 2015 sacrilege of Guru Granth Sahib with titles like ‘Sara Punjab Sidhu De Naal’, ‘Kisaana Di Awaaz Mangda hai Punjab Guru Di Beadbi Da Hisab’.
