There was a new stir in the Punjab Congress on Tuesday. Supporting MLAs of Navjot Singh Sidhu met Capt Amarinder Singh. Since then, the meaning of this meeting started being taken out in the political corridors of Punjab. At the same time, political speculation also started. On the other hand, Navjot Singh Sidhu met former Chief Minister Rajinder Kaur Bhattal.
The supporters of state Congress chief Navjot Singh Sidhu met Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh on Tuesday amid the ruckus in the Punjab Congress. These MLAs included Gurkeerat Singh Kotli, Lakhvir Singh Lakha, and Navtej Singh Cheema. At the same time, Congress MP Ravneet Bittu, a supporter of Captain, was also present on this occasion. New political meanings are being taken out of Sidhu’s supporters’ MLAs’ meeting with the Captain.
It is noteworthy that Navjot Sidhu, who had recently approached the party high command to complain about the captain, had to return unharmed. Since this incident, Sidhu has kept silent. Even during the one-day special session of the Punjab Legislative Assembly, Sidhu made an appearance in the proceedings of the House but kept his distance from the media.
The MLAs who had arrived for the meeting with the Captain on Tuesday were all involved in the meeting of the anti-captain camp at the residence of Cabinet Minister Tript Rajinder Singh Bajwa in the past and in that meeting the demand was raised to remove the Captain from the post of Chief Minister. However, doing damage control on the same day, a late-night press statement was issued by the Captain’s camp, listing the names of seven MLAs who had reposed their faith in the Captain despite being present in the meeting at Tript Bajwa’s residence. Gurkeerat Kotli’s name was also on this list but he immediately denied it and made it clear that he is with Navjot Sidhu.
On Tuesday, when Sidhu wanted to know the reason for meeting the pro-MLAs, he said that his meeting with the Chief Minister should not be seen from a political point of view, he had come to meet the Chief Minister for the development works of his circles. Meanwhile, on Tuesday, the Chief Minister met ministers and MLAs throughout the day at his residence and also received reports of development works of various departments.
Sidhu again reached to meet Bhattal
Navjot Singh Sidhu reached former Chief Minister Rajinder Kaur Bhattal’s residence on Tuesday. This is Sidhu’s second meeting with Bhattal after becoming the chief of the Punjab Pradesh Congress. Even before Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh’s meeting with Bhattal last week, Sidhu has met the former chief minister. Although there was no disclosure about this meeting, but it is believed that Sidhu had come to know about the health of Bhattal, who was unwell these days.
