- Amarinder relented
Pawan Goel, Sukhwinder Singh Danny, Kuljit Singh Nagra and Sangat Singh Gilsian are the acting presidents. After the meeting, AICC Secretary General Harish Rawat said Amarinder had made it clear that he would accept any decision made by Sonia Gandhi in the case of the PCC president.
Amarinder Singh had written a letter to Sonia Gandhi yesterday protesting the decision to make Sidhu president. The letter said that the High Command’s action would divide the Congress in Punjab. It was after this that Harish was sent to Punjab.
