Former Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh. (Express file photo by Gurmeet Singh) “You can be old at 18 and young at 80.’’ This was Capt Amarinder Singh’s comeback to an interviewer who pointed to his age, when he was talking about floating his own party last year. “I am a soldier… I want to go out on a winning note,” the former Congress chief minister of Punjab had told The Indian Express soon after he was shown the door, in August 2021, by a party and its first family, the Gandhis, he had been loyal to for over five decades.

Many thought that the scion of the erstwhile Patiala princely state, who was notorious for being inaccessible during his tenure as the CM, would retire to his farmhouse near Chandigarh and devote himself to writing military history — he has seven books on the subject to his credit — but he had other plans. Though deserted by his former Congress colleagues, Amarinder formed his own party, Punjab Lok Congress (PLC), and tied up with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for the Punjab Assembly elections held in February 2022.

Although a debilitating back injury made it difficult for him to undertake the Assembly poll campaign for long hours, Amarinder soldiered on. It was an uphill battle and his party fared poorly, failing to even open its account. Amarinder himself lost his Patiala stronghold to a candidate fielded by the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), which swept the elections.

Days after his return to Punjab after having undergone a surgery in London, Amarinder has now launched a new innings as he joined the BJP on Monday.
