The ongoing discord in Punjab Congress will end now. A big decision will be taken by the party high command soon regarding Punjab and Navjot Singh Sidhu can be given a big responsibility. In view of the Punjab Assembly elections to be held next year, an attempt will be made to end the anti-incumbency wave by reshuffle the cabinet.
Earlier, Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh was asked by the party high command to clarify the situation by holding a press conference. But he didn’t do that. Here, Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh called a meeting with party MLAs in Chandigarh on Thursday over lunch. The meeting lasted about four hours. After the lunch meeting, Captain Amarinder Singh said that Punjab had positive discussions with senior Congress colleagues from urban areas. We took their feedback to strengthen the party at the grassroots level.

A day earlier, Navjot Singh Sidhu had a long meeting with former Congress President Rahul Gandhi and General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra. It is believed that in these meetings, an attempt was made by the Congress high command to persuade Sidhu with an offer of respectable position in the party or organization. Sources say that in view of Sidhu’s tough stand against Chief Minister Amarinder Singh, the Congress high command is trying to find a satisfactory solution for both the leaders.
In recent times, Sidhu has been repeatedly insisting that he cannot work with the Chief Minister. In recent weeks, Sidhu and some other Punjab Congress leaders have opened a front against Chief Minister Amarinder Singh. Sidhu says that till now no action has been taken in the sacrilege of Guru Granth Sahib and effective steps have not been taken to curb corruption. In an effort to resolve the discord of the Congress in Punjab, Rahul Gandhi recently had a brainstorm with several party leaders.
