Amarinder Singh. He said that people also understand that Rahul Gandhi did not like Amarinder Singh and his so called arrogant style against the central leadership. He said that way both the cabinet minister are working in the state, point towards a deep conspiracy hatched to fail the Chief Minister.Mr. Sharma said that never in the history of any state any cabinet minister is publicly seen to ask for departments which are directly under the Chief Minister and claiming that he will perform wonderful job in these departments.

He said that it means that Manpreet wants to collect 1100 crore to give Rs. 1500 crores.Mr. Sharma said that even the corridors of the power it is murmured that Rahul Gandhi has directed both Mr. Manpreet Badal and Mr. Navjot Sidhu to work for bringing bad name to the CM and fail him politically.
