A day after meeting Union Home Minister Amit Shah, former Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh today met National Security Advisor (NSA) Ajit Doval at his residence in New Delhi. While more information on the visit is yet to emerge. On Wednesday, he discussed the ongoing farmers' agitation in his meeting with Amit Shah and urged him to resolve the crisis by immediately repealing the three farm laws.

Amarinder Singh had resigned as Chief Minister on September 18 and had told the media that the Congress leadership had let him down. He had also taken a dig at Sidhu over his resignation, saying he is not a stable man.
