Former Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh held a meeting with Haryana CM Manohar Lal Khattar at his residence in Chandigarh on Monday, 29 November.

Being termed as a 'courtesy meeting' by Singh, the meeting came on the same day as the passing of the highly-anticipated Farm Laws Repeal Bill, 2021 in the Parliament.

In the Assembly elections slated for 2022, Singh is looking to enter an alliance with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). Speaking to the media, he said on Tuesday, 30 November, "Our membership drive is going great, wait for the time. We (with our allies) will form the government (in Punjab)."

After leading the Congress party to victory in the 2017 state elections, Singh resigned as the chief minister in September, after a prolonged power tussle with Navjot Singh Sidhu.

While Sidhu was appointed as chief of Congress' Punjab unit, Singh floated his own political party called Punjab Lok Congress earlier this month and announced that it'll contest all 117 Assembly seats in the state.
