Punjab Revenue Minister Bikram Singh Majithia has called Congress Lok Sabha candidate from Amritsar Captain Amarinder Singh "a Maharaja without a kingdom, and a man whose political career is coming to an end."
He said "a reluctant Captain Amarinder Singh was forced by Sonia Gandhi to contest the general elections, and now,he was so disturbed that he has lost his mental balance and has no control over his tongue."
Majithia said Captain Amarinder Singh had a bloated ego, and was unable to see the writing on the wall.
"This is all because Captain Amarinder Singh still feels that he is Maharaja and cannot realize that the days of Maharajas and kings is over and the leaders who are close to the hearts of the people can be their rightful representatives," he said.
"There is no place for kings in democracy and they had fallen to the ground under the weight of the representative politics," Bikram said.
"He is bound to be defeated badly by the people of Amritsar who are aware about his old tactics of poisoning the politics" Majithia said.
He said Captain Amarinder Singh must realize that the people have various issues that need to be addressed instead of resorting to gimmicks.
Criticizing the Congress party, Majithia said the former belongs to a party which had a government at the center that broke all records in corruption and engineering scandals and looted the country.

Majithia further said "Singh has been distorting facts regarding 'Operation Blue Star' and forgets he belongs to the party which conducted the onslaught against the most respected religious shrine and facilitated the anti-Sikh riots in November 1984."
"Instead of taking action against those who killed hundreds of the Sikhs, the Congress gave them prominent posts in the party and government. For example, the name of Jagdish Tytler and Sajjan Kumar can be referred", he added.

New Delhi, 1984. New York, 2014.

In my parent’s bedroom is a framed photo that seems a bit out of place. The small image has an aged yellow tint and displays my father at the young age of 24, standing proudly atop the GB Pant Hospital in New Delhi, India. He looks just as I do now. Tall, skinny, his not-yet full beard kept neatly on the sides of his jaw as he sports a clean pair of glasses and a neat turban matching his shirt. That year (1984), my father was in his medical residency pursuing a specialty in anesthesiology. His eyes shine of dreams of the success that would come from his hard work in the future. However, what could not be captured in the photograph is what my father had seen in that year, 1984. Writes Manmeet Singh Gujral
