New Delhi: Congress President Sonia Gandhi met Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh for about an hour to resolve the dispute of Punjab Congress. After which the Captain said that whatever decision will be taken by the party president, he will be accepted. It is believed from this development that the Punjab Congress feud, which has been going on for several weeks, will end soon. However, the suspense still remains on the responsibility given to Navjot Singh Sidhu, who rebelled against the Captain.
After meeting Sonia Gandhi, Captain Amarinder Singh said outside 10 Janpath, “The development works of the Punjab government were discussed. Political issues were also discussed. Whatever decision the Congress President takes, I will accept.” However, on the question asked about the responsibility given to Sidhu, the Captain said that I do not know anything about Sidhu. It is clear that the bitterness of the captain about Sidhu has not diminished.
Asked to work on 18 points
According to sources, Sonia Gandhi, while giving a message of unity to the Captain, took everyone along and asked him to complete the work on 18 points. Sources claimed that the matter would be resolved soon. Although it is easy to say but the Congress high command is losing its sweat in resolving the dispute. According to sources, the Congress leadership will soon announce the decisions keeping in mind the 2022 assembly elections.
At the same time, the biggest suspense is about the role of Sidhu. Speculations are being made to make him the state president. But the close relatives of the captain claim that the state president will be from the Hindu society. A Dalit leader can get the post of Deputy Chief Minister. Sidhu can be given the command of the campaign committee in the assembly elections. At the same time, the option of joining Captain Sarkar is also open for him.
The captain’s chair seems safe for the rest of the term, but the captain has to use it in action on 18 issues. Prominent among these are Guru Granth Sahib sacrilege, action in police firing case, action against drugs and mining mafia, solution to power crisis and announcement of providing free electricity up to 200 units. Captain’s performance on these issues will decide how much power he will have in his hands for the 2022 elections and will he be made the face?
Overall, it is being said that when the Congress party announces changes related to the government and organization in Punjab, then it will be clear whether two swords named Captain and Sidhu will be able to live in one sheath or not!
