'Anti-Party' Stance: Congress Notice to Amarinder Singh's Wife & MP Preneet Kaur
Insisting that she is standing by her family, Kaur said that the Captain has always stood by his commitments.
Congress MP Preneet Kaur is facing the wrath of her own party after she was asked by Congress' Punjab in-charge Harish Choudhary to explain certain reports of her "anti-party" stance, NDTV reported.
In a letter addressed to Kaur, Choudhary asserts that the party has been "continuously receiving" reports from the media and party leaders from Patiala about such activities.
"We are also made aware of your open announcements in the media about siding with your husband's party," Choudhary added in the letter.
Kaur had hinted on 22 November that she might join the new political party in Punjab – Punjab Lok Congress – floated by her husband, Captain Amarinder Singh, The Indian Express reported.
Insisting that she is standing by her family, Kaur said that "Captain Amarinder Singh has always stood by the commitment he makes."
Kaur, who has previously served in the Indian government as a Minister of State in the Ministry of External Affairs from 2009 to 2014 has been given a deadline of seven days to provide a response to Choudhary and his accusations.
Captain Amarinder had resigned as the chief minister of Punjab on 18 September after a long lasting tussle with Punjab Congress chief Navjot Singh Sidhu, after which the former has repeatedly accused the party of humiliating him.
Captain Singh has said that his new party would contest all 117 seats in the upcoming 2022 Punjab Assembly elections.
