The meeting came on a day when the Bill to repeal the three contentious farm laws, against which farmers have been protesting for over a year, was passed by the Lok Sabha.

“This was a simple courtesy meeting with Khattar Sahab,” Capt Amarinder Singh told reporters later.

The former Congress leader is hoping for a seat-sharing arrangement with the BJP for the 2022 Punjab assembly elections.

Capt Amarinder Singh had resigned as the Punjab chief minister in September amid a bitter power tussle with Punjab Congress chief Navjot Singh Sidhu. Charanjit Singh Channi replaced him as chief minister.

After his unceremonious exit, Capt Amarinder Singh launched the Punjab Lok Congress.
