New Delhi: Discord continues in Punjab Congress. There is still a stir in the fight between Navjot Sidhu and Punjab CM Captain Amarinder. The big news is that today there can be a meeting with Congress President Sonia Gandhi. According to sources, Harish Rawat, a member of the dispute resolution committee, can also be present in this meeting. Sidhu has also left for Delhi from Patiala for the meeting. Will meet Sonia Gandhi in the afternoon. The letter to make Sidhu the Punjab Congress chief can be issued anytime after this meeting.
According to sources, AICC can announce the new party chief of Punjab by late evening or tomorrow. The formula for two working presidents has also been given along with Sidhu. One will be a Dalit and the other a Hindu face. In Punjab, 57.69 percent of the population is Sikh while 38.49 percent is Hindu. Combining both the religions, the Scheduled Castes constitute 31.94 percent of the people. The final decision will be taken only after Sidhu meets Sonia Gandhi.
However, big leaders of Congress are not saying anything about Sidhu being made the President of Punjab Congress. When Congress’s Punjab in-charge Harish Rawat came out to meet Sonia Gandhi on Thursday evening, he gave a roundabout answer to this question. Responding to a question whether it was decided to make Sidhu the president, he said, “Who said… he would be there.. I said a decision has to be made around it.”
Capt Amarinder Singh unhappy
Captain Amarinder Singh has already had a meeting with Sonia Gandhi. Therefore, this is the last major meeting before the Punjab Congress ends the discord and the appointment of new faces, after which only the order will be left to be issued. On the other hand, the news of Sidhu being made the president has definitely increased the stir in the captain’s camp. According to the news being received from the sources, Captain Amarinder Singh is angry and dissatisfied that Sidhu can be made the state president.
