After Navjot Singh Sidhu became the President of the Punjab Congress, it was believed that all the internal disputes of the party would be settled, but this could not happen. The spark between Captain Amarinder Singh and the Sidhu camp has flared up. These days the Congress was engaged in resolving the issue of objectionable remarks made by two of Sidhu’s advisors on national issues and the Gandhi family itself. On the other hand, on Tuesday, state ministers and MLAs held a meeting at the residence of cabinet minister Tript Rajinder Singh Bajwa and sounded the bugle for a big change in the Punjab Congress.
Cabinet Minister Tript Rajinder Singh Bajwa met Punjab Pradesh Congress President Navjot Singh Sidhu in the evening after convening a meeting of anti-Captain Amarinder Singh Congress leaders at his residence on Tuesday and openly raising the demand for Captain’s removal.
In the meeting held at Punjab Congress Bhawan, Tript Bajwa gave detailed information about the meeting. Several other MLAs were also present along with Bajwa on this occasion. During this, Sidhu also discussed the latest situation of the party with Tript Bajwa and other MLAs. He said that he would soon inform the party high command about the prevailing situation in the party.
There is no dispute between Sidhu and Captain: Rawat
Punjab party affairs in-charge Harish Rawat told over the phone Dehradun that there is no dispute between Captain and Sidhu now. Whatever situation has arisen in the party now, he will give all the information about it to the high command. He told that some MLAs of Punjab Congress have contacted him and they are reaching to meet him in Dehradun on Wednesday.
Whatever the MLAs tell, full information will be sent to the high command. Rawat admitted that the rhetoric of Sidhu’s advisors was objectionable but it has been said on behalf of the state head that the statements of the advisors have been distorted. An inquiry will be conducted in this regard and the guilty will be thrown out of the party.
