Liv­ing life king-size is his way

Hindustan Times (Patna) - - FRONT PAGE -

Pun­jab Congress chief Cap­tain Amarinder Singh and his bête noire Ra­jin­der Kaur Bhat­tal are at it once again. Bhat­tal, a known de­trac­tor of Singh, ap­par­ently started a fresh war of words af­ter she asked the state unit chief to change his work­ing style. “The son of a Raja is a Raja only and he was like a Raja when he used to be the part of the Shi­ro­mani Akali Dal prior to join­ing Congress,” Bhat­tal said in an ap­par­ent ref­er­ence to the op­u­lent life­style of the Pa­tiala royal. Singh took strong ob­jec­tion to the re­marks and asked her not to make such state­ments in pub­lic or in the me­dia. “If she re­ally has any opin­ion about the party func­tion­ing, she should bet­ter give it to the high com­mand, par­tic­u­larly party pres­i­dent So­nia Gandhi,” Singh said. A right royal snub there.
