Senior Congress leader and party in-charge Harish Rawat have given a big statement on the ongoing discord in Punjab Congress. Dismissing reports of a tussle between Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh and State Congress Committee President Navjot Singh Sidhu, Rawat said if there is any dispute between the two leaders, it will prove beneficial for the party in the future.
Talking to reporters in New Delhi, Rawat said that people believe that party leaders are fighting in Punjab because brave leaders have expressed their views firmly. He said that Punjab is the land of heroes. The people there hold their opinion very strongly and at times it appears that they will fight. But, there is nothing like it, and they look for solutions to their problems.
He further said that Punjab Congress is solving its problems on its own. We are not doing anything. When asked about the relationship between Captain and Sidhu, Rawat said if there is any dispute, it will be good for Congress.
Sidhu supporters met Capt.
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.
