My soulmate, not lover: Former Pak journalist Aroosa Alam on Amarinder Singh

Prime News, National (New Delhi), Oct 27:- Aroosa Alam, Captain Amarinder Singh’s long-time friend and a former journalist from Pakistan, has been pulled into the political slanging match in Punjab. On Wednesday, in an exclusive conversation with India Today from Islamabad, she rubbished all the allegations of links with the ISI and of influencing Amarinder Singh when he was the Punjab Chief Minister.

Responding to the allegations of an affair with Amarinder Singh, Aroosa Alam said they were soulmates, not lovers.

“We have been companions. When I first met him, I was 56 and he was around 66. At such an age, you are not looking for lovers. We were friends, companions and soulmates,” she said.

She said, “We met at a juncture in life where love affairs and romance don’t matter. We have been soulmates and good family friends. I have met his mother, his family, sisters.”

In a fresh jibe, Punjab Deputy Chief Minister Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa invoked religion to say that “love affairs” were not allowed in the Sikh religion. “Even in Gurbani, living with another woman is considered wrong. Captain and I fought in America as well regarding the issue of Aroosa Alam,” he had said on Tuesday. (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
