- Sidhu’s tweet as a consolation to Congress.
- He will support Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi.
- Sidhu tweets that he will stay out even if there are no privileges.
The consoling response from congressional leaders came after reports emerged that Sidhu, who had resigned as PCC chairman, would make tough decisions.
Even if the reactionary forces try to defeat him, Punjab will still win. Punjab (World Brotherhood) will win. “All Punjabis will win,” Sidhu said on Twitter. However, he did not say whether he would return to the post of president of the PCC. Sidhu’s tweet comes as the High Command assesses that Harish Rawat, who is in charge of the state to solve political problems in Punjab, has failed.
Sidhu’s opposition and the resignation of the PCC chairman were reportedly due to some appointments made by the current Chief Minister, Charanjit Singh Channi, following the resignation of Amarinder Singh. Meanwhile, there are indications that Amarinder will form a new party and join the BJP. Amarinder’s outspoken statement that he is not untouchable with either side reinforces the suspicion of the captain’s move. A few months before the Assembly elections, Congress believes that if Amarinder forms a new party, it will be counterproductive.
As the controversy continues, Amarinder Singh’s meeting with Union Interior Minister Amit Shah has raised concerns in Congress. Unconfirmed reports say that Amarinder’s new party will be called the Punjab Vikas Party. According to sources close to Amarinder, he is in talks to discuss the party’s constitution. Amarinder had said yesterday that the party would make a 15-day announcement.
Meanwhile, Congress has released a report that is likely to exacerbate the Amarinder problem. According to News18, Congress spokesman Randeep Singh Surjewala said that the majority of the MLAs in the Punjab Assembly had written to the High Command requesting the removal of Amarinder from the post of Chief Minister.
Of the 79 MLA in Congress in the Punjab Assembly, 78 had demanded the removal of Amarinder from the post of captain. The decision to remove Amarinder from the post of Chief Minister came amid strong opposition from the MLA. How long can you continue as Chief Minister without the support of the MLA? In that case, the person will have to resign, “said Randeep Singh Surjewala, speaking in Delhi about the political crisis in the Punjab Congress.
