Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi has said that he has full faith in Navjot Singh Sidhu. Asked if Sidhu was upset over the bureaucratic system and non-compliance of his orders in cabinet expansion, Channi said if he is upset then it will be resolved… Though he is not upset with me.
Navjot Singh Sidhu has finally played brick to brick of Punjab Congress. During his 68 days in the post of state head, he toppled the Captain’s government and formed a new Congress government. After these two achievements of upheaval in the party, when it was felt that all was now going well in the state Congress, Sidhu on Tuesday took an unexpected step and sent his resignation to party president Sonia Gandhi.
When Sidhu was given the chair of the state head, he started pointing fingers at the work of the then Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh, as a result, Sidhu was criticized in the party itself and he was also instructed to speak thoughtfully but Sidhu He had then warned the high command that if he was stopped from doing his own thing, he would hit brick by brick.
Eventually, Sidhu was successful in his strategy. Taking the party’s vice-president Rahul Gandhi into confidence, Sidhu first toppled the Captain’s government and then played an important role in the formation of the new Congress government under the leadership of Charanjit Singh Channi. On Sunday, Sidhu was also present at the swearing-in ceremony of the new ministers of the state at the Punjab Raj Bhavan, but on Tuesday, when the Chief Minister announced the portfolios of his ministers, the news of Sidhu’s resignation came in the afternoon.
Sidhu has only resigned from the post of state president, not leaving the Congress party, but many discussions have intensified regarding his resignation. It is believed that the important role he played in making Channi the Chief Minister was the result of that he was seen holding Channi’s hand and carrying him with him in the functions organized in various districts, but this could not last long and Channi ignored Sidhu’s advice in appointment to the posts of state DGP, Advocate General.
Party sources say that after handing over the Home portfolio to Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa, Sidhu accepted that he would not work in the Channi government. In fact, Randhawa had staked a claim for the chief minister’s post after former party chief Sunil Jakhar was ousted as the leader of the legislature party. Due to this, Sidhu missed to present his claim, yet he sidelines Randhawa and made Channi the Chief Minister.
