When asked about his deputy chief minister, Singh said that it is upto for Rahul Gandhi to decide. "That will be decided by the Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi. All ministers will be decided by the party leadership," Amarinder said.

I have vowed to finish drugs within four weeks," a visibly happy Amarinder, who led the Congress back to power after a decade, told media after trends indicated that Congress was headed to a big win in the the state.

''We go by what our central leadership thinks is best. People of Punjab want industry and jobs,'' said.

He further called Arvind Kejriwal as a summer storm and he is gone. Taking a dig at Kejriwal, Singh said,''I said on the very first day that the voter of Punjab is very smart. They understood the AAP has no leadership, no credibility.

Punjab has 117 seats, a party needs 59 to form the government.
