The ‘Halke-vich-Captain’ progamme in the Kartarpur segment witnessed an embarrassing situation when local member of Parliament (MP) Santokh Chaudhary exchanged heated arguments with volunteers of poll strategist Prashant Kishor’s Indian- Political Affairs Committee (I-PAC) team over not allowing him to sit with PPCC chief Captain Amarinder Singh on the dais.
As soon as Choudhary, with his son and PPCC general secretary Vikramjit Choudhary, reached the venue, he started arguing with the I-PAC team members asking for another chair for him beside Captain Amarinder on the dais, but the I-PAC team refused to entertain him and asked him to sit with other senior Congress leaders.
Upset at this, Choudhary, with his son, came out of the venue and, when he was about to board his car, Captain’s media adviser Vimal Sumbli reached there and pacified the MP with a ‘special message’ from Captain. Then, a special chair was brought on the dais for the MP, who later was seen enjoying the company of Captain.
“The entire event is designed in a way that only Captain is visible to the public. In Ludhiana, the sitting MP attended the show as an audience. We convinced the MP but he was adamant to sit with Captain,” said an I-PAC member. Chaudhary refused to comment on the matter and termed it a very small issue.
