Chandigarh: After a long wait, the Congress high command has finally announced the appointment of Navjot Singh Sidhu as the new President of Punjab Congress. Four working presidents have also been made with him, in which geographical and social equations have been taken care of.
Despite Captain Amarinder Singh’s displeasure, Sidhu became the state president
Sonia Gandhi issued a letter to Sidhu
Even though Captain Amarinder Singh has said that he will accept the decision of the high command, but efforts to stop the appointment of Sidhu from his camp took place till the last day. When Sidhu was discussed in a meeting of Congress MPs from Punjab in Delhi, ten Congress MLAs from Punjab issued a statement advising the high command not to ignore the Captain. Amidst all this, differences started in the party regarding the meeting of MLAs convened by outgoing Punjab Congress President Sunil Jakhar in Chandigarh on Monday. The Captain’s camp did not want this meeting to happen and Sidhu should get a chance to show his strength. But before that Congress President Sonia Gandhi issued a letter in Sidhu’s name without further delay.
Will Captain and Sidhu walk together?
