The assembly elections in Punjab 2017 are expected to be one of the most closely fought battle in the history of state’s politics. Punjab the land of five revers was the most prosperous state due to hardworking Sikh farmers and NRI’s contributing with foreign remittances. But in the last one decade the agriculture industry has been slowly decaying due to the falling ground water tables and polluted soil with over usage of fertilizers. The youth of Punjab is struggling to find good job opportunities because of rampant corruption destroying the manufacturing industry in the state. Many of the youngsters in Punjab are turning towards drug addiction in their desperation to find quick mental relief.
Both the ruling Akali Dal and Congress leaders have failed to address the problems of youth in Punjab in the last one decade. Thus many of them are now eyeing Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in a hope that they might resolves their issues which Akali’s and Congress politicians are ignoring since many years. I have discuss the charts of these three political parties in my article Punjab and Goa Assembly Elections in 2017
Now in this write-up i will be discussing the horoscope of the chief minister candidate from Congress party Captain Amrinder Singh.
Horoscope of Captain Amrinder Singh
11 March 1942, 03:25 hours at Patiala , Punjab
Balance of Dasha in Vimshottari: Ketu 1 Years 10 Months 15 Days
Amrinder Singh was born in the royal family of Patiala (Punjab) belonging to the Jat dynasty of Sidhu Brar decent. His father Yadavinder Singh was the Maharaja of Patiala. In the Dhanu (Sagittarius) lagan chart of Captain Amrinder Singh Saturn and Mars are in conjunction in the 6th house along with Jupiter. The Saturn-Mars conjunction placed in ‘Upachaya’ houses ( 3, 6, 10 and 11) gives Kshatriya personality. The lagna and fourth lord Jupiter along with 5th lord Mars is a good Raja Yoga.
The placement of these planets in the 6th house took him to the army. He joined the Indian Army in June 1963 during Venus-Ketu dasha in Vimshottari. The Venus is the lord of 6th house along with the 10th lord Mercury. The Ketu is in the 3rd house of valor. In Dashamsha chart the Venus is the 10th lord and giving aspect to the Ketu placed in the ascendant. He served as Captain in the Indo-Pak war of 1965.
Captain Amrinder Singh joined the Congress party at the request of his school friend Rajive Gandhi. He was first elected to the Lok Sabha in 1980 during the Vimshottari dasha of Mars-Mars. In 1984 he resigned from the Congress party in protest of the ‘ operation blue star’. It was Mars-Ketu period in his chart when he left the Congress party and joined the Shiromani Akali Dal.
Breaking away Akali Dal and rejoining Congress
In the dasha of Rahu-Saturn in Vimshottari he broke away from Akali Dal and formed a splinter group in 1992. The Rahu-Saturn and the Saturn-Rahu are considered very difficult periods in general unless they are receiving the aspect of a pure Jupiter.
Captain Amrinder Singh later joined the Congress party in 1998 in his Rahu-Venus dasha in Vimshottari. The Rahu-Venus and the Venus-Rahu periods are regarded as the time of transformation in once’s life.
Chief Minister of Punjab
He became the chief minister of Punjab in Rahu-Sun dasha on 26 February 2002. He served on this post for fiver years. Later in Jupiter-Jupiter dasha in Vimshottari the Congress party lost assembly elections to Akail Dal in 2007. The Jupiter is in inimical Rashi Taurus and in Dashamsha it is badly placed in the 12th house of losses.
His political career took an interesting turn when in the Lok Sabha elections of 2014 he defeated Arun Jaitly amid the Modi wave which had ripped-off most of the Congress leaders. It was during Jupiter-Sun dasha when Captain Amrinder Singh won elections from Amritsar Lok Sabha seat in May 2014. Sun is the lord of 9th house in Rashi chart and in Dashamsha it is the lord of ascendant. The dasha of ascendant lord in Dashamsha chart hold importance when it is in good conjunction and/or association their.
Astrological Predictions on Punjab Assembly Elections in 2017
Captain Amrinder Singh is the president of pradesh Congress committee and is chief minister candidate from the party. He is luring the youth with election promises like distributing free smart phone and guaranteed one job per family if the Congress came into the power.
At the time when Captain Amrinder Singh is fighting election against Prakash Singh Badal the SAD chief it is interesting to know that they are distance relatives due to political marriages took placed in the 1960’s. Punjab politics is all about six families of Punjab who have contributed all the chief minister till day. Kairons, Badals, Majithias, Brars, and the Patiala royal family have given all the chief ministers to the Punjab states since 1967.
Capt Amarinder Singh and Simranjit Singh Mann tied a nuptial knot to sisters , HS Brar with Pratap Singh Kairon’s niece, while Kairon’s grandson Adesh Pratap married Parkash Singh Badal’s daughter. Both Kairons and Badals are Dhillons by caste. These four marriage alliances in the 60s were enough to ensure that power would remain with these families. In later decades many more marriages had took place between these families which put Badal’s, Captain Amrinder Singh and Simren Jeet Singh Mann in family relations. So Punjab elections had all been a family fight between these political dynasties.
But now the situation has completely changed as with the entry of AAP under the leadership of Arvind Kejriwal for the first time it might happen that a Punjab chief minister may come out of these six political families. It might also happen that a non-Jat become the chief minister of Punjab considering the present socio-political scenario of the state.
In the horoscope of Captain Amrinder Singh the transiting Saturn will come over his natal Moon, which is 8th lord here, on the 26th of January. The Vimshottari dasha of Jupiter-Moon-Saturn is unfavorable just like this transit of Saturn. The Jupiter and Moon are in 6/8 position in the Rashi chart and in Navamsha they are in the 2/12 position. The Moon placed in the 8th house of Navamsha and Dashamsha chart can not give him the position of chief minister though under his leadership Congress will do well to become the second largest party in the state assembly.
In Chara dasha the Capricorn-Taurus-Sagittarius is running at the time of elections. The Capricorn having his Atamakaraka Mercury is a dasha of ups an down. The anter dasha Rashi is the 6th house having Ganatikaraka. His health might also suffer in next few months.
