MLAs and MPs close to Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh met ahead of the CLP meeting with several ministers expressing regret at the “way the CM is being humiliated”.

“This is certainly not the way. This constant refrain that the CM didn’t deliver makes no sense because the delivery of party manifesto promises is the collective work of the cabinet,” said a Punjab Congress leader.
