- The discord in Punjab Congress is not taking its name to calm down. The dispute escalated so much that the high command had to constitute a committee. This committee is constantly meeting with the Congress leaders of Punjab and getting to know their side. Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh has now reached Delhi to present his side in this episode. He will meet the committee members on Friday.
Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh has reached Delhi on Thursday. He will present his side on Friday before a three-member committee constituted by the high command to quell the tussle in the state Congress. After this, the captain may have a meeting with party president Sonia Gandhi. During this, the Captain will hand over the current situation of Punjab Congress as well as the outline of preparations for the upcoming elections.
At the same time, Congress leader and former Chief Minister Rajinder Kaur Bhattal, who returned after meeting the committee, also held a press conference at her residence on Thursday and said that there is no difference in Punjab Congress, only some differences. Such differences existed even during his Chief Minister’s tenure.
Bhattal said that the culprits of the sacrilege and the Kotkapura firing case would be punished at any cost. Some party leaders are definitely worried about accountability in sacrilege cases. It is reasonable too. With the elections approaching, the party leaders are concerned that the promises made to the public should be fulfilled soon. On the other hand, the opposition parties are adopting tactics to weaken the Congress by raising communal issues.
Bhattal said that she appreciates the senior and youth leadership of the Congress that both are working with a clear intention to take the party forward. The Punjab government has fulfilled about 70 percent of the promises so far, but no one knew that a situation like a corona epidemic would also have to be faced.
When asked whether Navjot is with Sidhu or with the CM Captain, Bhattal said that he is with Congress. He denied that there was any factionalism in Congress. The Captain government will also fulfill the rest of the promises and the guilty in the sacrilege case will not be spared. Because it is an emotional matter and is related to every person in the state.
Captain got delayed in going to Delhi due to cabinet meeting and other reasons
The three-member committee is calling the Congress leaders of Punjab every day since Monday and listening to their side on the entire dispute. In this episode, the Chief Minister was to go to Delhi on Wednesday, but due to the meeting of the Punjab cabinet and other works, he left for Delhi on Thursday morning. On reaching Delhi, the Captain held a meeting with Sports Minister Rana Gurmit Singh Sodhi at Kapurthala House. Captain Sandeep Sandhu, advisor to CM was also present on the occasion.
