New Delhi/Chandigarh: Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh will meet Congress interim President Sonia Gandhi today amid the ongoing discord in the Punjab Congress. Amarinder Singh has left for Delhi from Chandigarh by helicopter. It is not yet clear whether Rahul Gandhi will also attend this meeting with Sonia Gandhi.
If sources are to be believed, this meeting of Sonia and Captain is considered important before the reshuffle in the government and organization in Punjab. Captain Amarinder Singh will reach Delhi at 12 noon.
Recently Sidhu met Rahul
It is worth noting that Navjot Singh Sidhu recently met Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi in Delhi amidst discord in Punjab Congress. Now it remains to be seen whether the strife in Punjab Congress can be overcome after the meeting between Sonia Gandhi and Captain Amarinder today.
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 and its formula may come out soon.
Some Punjab Congress leaders are angry with Amarinder
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 so far no action has been taken in the sacrilege of Guru Granth Sahib and effective steps have not been taken to curb corruption.
