Amarinder Singh Vs Navjot Singh Sidhu: The discord in the ruling Congress in Punjab is not taking its name to stop. According to sources, Captain Amarinder Singh is not in favor of giving the command of Punjab Congress to Navjot Singh Sidhu, who is angry with him. Amidst these reports, Punjab Congress in-charge Harish Rawat held a long meeting with Sonia Gandhi in New Delhi. Sources say that former party president Rahul Gandhi and general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra were also present in this meeting.
A source said, “The Congress-Alakman is finalizing the formula to end the crisis in Punjab. This crisis is likely to end soon. ”After the meeting, Rawat said that Amarinder Singh will continue to serve as the Chief Minister and Congress will contest the elections while in this position.
At the same time, he said on the formula of making Navjot Sidhu the President of Punjab Congress that I have never said this. When I was asked if Navjot Singh Sidhu would be the Congress President of Punjab, I said that some similar decision would be taken.
Sources say that the high command is seriously considering this formula that in the event of making Sidhu the President of the Pradesh Congress Committee, a Dalit and a Hindu leader should be entrusted with him as the working president, so that the political crisis will end. The caste and regional equation can also be simplified. Meanwhile, both Amarinder Singh and Sidhu held meetings with their supporters in Chandigarh.
CM’s advisory statement
Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh’s media advisor Raveen Thukral rubbished claims that the chief minister would resign. Thukral tweeted, “The news of the resignation of the Chief Minister is rubbish. He has neither stepped down nor offered to leave. He will lead the Congress in the 2022 assembly elections and bring it to victory as he did in 2017. The media is urged to stop speculating and spreading misleading information.
Meanwhile, in the late evening, Navjot Sidhu held a meeting with the MLAs and ministers supporting the house of Minister Sukhjinder Randhawa. Cabinet ministers Triptrajinder Bajwa, Sukhbinder Sarkaria, Charanjit Channi, MLAs Pargat Singh, Kushaldeep Dhillon, Kulbir Zeera and Varinder Pahra were present in the meeting. It was discussed in the meeting that after making Sidhu the party president on behalf of the High Command, everyone would go to the Golden Temple together to pay their respects.
Let us tell you that for the last few months, open discord is being seen in Punjab Congress. Former minister Navjot Singh Sidhu and some other leaders have opened a front against Chief Minister Amarinder Singh. To solve this, the Congress formed a committee under the leadership of Mallikarjun Kharge. The committee, after talking to Amarinder Singh and Sidhu, has submitted the report to the High Command. At the same time, Amarinder Singh has met Sonia Gandhi and Navjot Sidhu has met Rahul and Priyanka Gandhi.
