“It is a question of saving the Indian democracy, at a time like this we expected Amarinder Singh would stand with Sonia Gandhi and protect democratic values,” he said.

“I’ll add that Amarinder Singh should reconsider whatever he has said so far. He should not help anti-Punjab, and anti-farmer BJP,” he said.

Rawat’s comments came a day after Singh announced he was not joining the BJP, but would also not stay in the Congress either . Singh, who might float his own party, has so far kept silent about his future plans.

He had resigned as the chief minister of Punjab on September 18, saying he felt humiliated.
