Punjab chief minister Capt Amarinder Singh has a spontaneous sense of humour. Amarinder, who addressed a press conference on Monday, was asked about his Haryana counterpart Manohar Lal Khattar’s letter to him to join hands in checking flow of Ravi waters into Pakistan. “I have not received any letter. Pehle kabootar laanhi bhejde sege unhe bheja hona ha (They may have used a homing pigeon to carry the letter like in the old days),” the Punjab chief minister said to guffaws before responding to Khattar’s suggestion. On his claim that Mehatpur station house officer (SHO) Parminder Bajwa had spoken to AAP leader Sukhpal Khaira before and after registering an FIR against Hardev Singh Ladi Sherowalia, the Congress candidate for the Shahkot assembly bypoll, a journalist asked the CM how he came to know they had gal-badh (conversation). “I have my sources. Will you disclose your sources,” pat came the repartee from the chief minister, who is never at a loss for words, to pay the scribe back with his own coin. Khaira later accused the Congress government of tapping phones of opposition leaders, a charge denied by the state administration.
