Speaking with The Tribune, a senior police official confirmed that Amarinder was not in Patiala today.

"Capt Amarinder is resting at Delhi home, unwell since May 14, prior intimation of absence given to PMO, " said his OSD Bhambri.

A close friend of Capt Amarinder Singh said that following some health issues he might give the event a miss. “He is recuperating fine and should be alright in a few days. Following medical advice, he is not likely to attend the Patiala rally,” he said.

Insiders said the entire poll campaign was planned in such a manner that Amarinder would give a last-minute push to the campaign of his wife.

“However, his missing from today’s big rally is a setback”, said a senior leader.

Amarinder’s absence means Preneet Kaur and his daughter Jai Inder Kaur would have to manage the campaign on their own as they have been doing for the past month.
