Mr Singh has once again caused a political furore after announcing that he would soon launch his political party.

In a tweet, captain's political advisor Raveen Thukral quoted the former CM as saying: "The battle for Punjab's future is on. Will soon announce the launch of my own political party to serve the interests of Punjab & its people, including our farmers who've been fighting for their survival for over a year."
