Navjot Singh Sidhu has once again reached Delhi today amidst discord in Punjab Congress. On reaching Delhi, Sidhu reached 10 Janpath to meet the interim president of the party, Sonia Gandhi. Here his meeting with Sonia Gandhi is going on. Punjab in-charge Harish Rawat is also present here. It is getting information from sources that the letter to make Sidhu the Punjab Congress chief can be issued anytime after this meeting.
There is also the hope of having two other working presidents in the state.
Punjab Congress is likely to get a new state president in the form of Navjot Singh Sidhu before next year’s assembly elections. Along with Sidhu, two other working presidents are also expected in the state. The Congress is working on the idea of appointing a Dalit and a Hindu belonging to an upper class as the working president. The names of Raj Kumar Verka and Santokh Chaudhary are being considered for the working president, as both are Dalits and can counter the influence of the Akali Dal-BSP alliance.
The aim of making a working president from the Hindu community may be to balance the equation well and working in this direction, the party may appoint Vijay Inder Singla as another working president. Not only this, the party is contemplating to reshuffle the cabinet in the state before the elections and give more representation to the Dalit community in the state.
Sources said that the formula has been prepared after meeting Rahul Gandhi, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra and election strategist Prashant Kishor. A three-member committee headed by senior party leader Mallikarjun Kharge, formed to resolve the issues in Punjab Congress, submitted its report. Other state leaders including Amarinder Singh and Sidhu also met the committee members to express their views.
