Former Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh on Wednesday announced the setting up of a new political front, which will fight for peace and the development of the state. Captain Amarinder said his lawyers are working the Election Commission and once the name and symbol are cleared by the election body, he would inform everyone about it.

Addressing the media in Chandigarh, Captain Amarinder waved the Congress manifesto from the last assembly election which he said had been fulfilled by 92 per cent during his four-and-a-half-year tenure. He stated that his interest was for Punjab to be an industrial destination, but not to be a 'disturbed' Punjab. 

He said that Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence and Khalistan links are proving to be dangerous and that it was the duty of every government to ensure peace and stability. Captain Amarinder Singh justified BSF's operation within 50 km of Punjab by highlighting the Chinese drones which are used by Pakistan to send supplies to Punjab. He said the day is not far when they will send supply to Chandigarh.

The former Punjab chief minister had just hours ago slammed those who had now stooped from personal attacks to threatening and harassing his supporters in Patiala and elsewhere. Captain Amarinder warned his rivals that they cannot defeat him with low-level political games. 

Stating that those who were trying to pull him down will neither win votes nor people's hearts with such tactics, he said that those who have stood by him have done so because they believed in working for peace and development of the state and they will not be scared away by such petty acts of intimidation.
