Chandigarh: The uproar in the party against Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh continues. The Punjab Congress’s top leadership panel is continuously meeting the state leaders to quell the ongoing internal discord. The round of meetings is going on in Delhi regarding this political stir.

Posters showing the disappearance of Navjot Singh Sidhu in Amritsar, the finder will get a reward of ₹ 50,000.

The panel, headed by Mallikarjun Kharge, also includes Congress general secretary and Punjab in-charge Harish Rawat and senior party leader JP Agarwal. This panel is constantly trying to pacify the ongoing turmoil in the state unit of Congress.

Earlier on Wednesday, the committee constituted with the aim of removing the ongoing discord in the Punjab unit of Congress met many MPs and former state presidents of the state and took their opinion. Appearing before this committee, about 80 Congress leaders of the state have made their point. Most of them are MLAs.

Let us tell you, in the recent few weeks, there has been a sharp rhetoric between Chief Minister Amarinder Singh and Navjot Singh Sidhu. Some other leaders of the State Congress Committee, including MLA Pargat Singh, have also opened a front against the Chief Minister.

At the same time, Sidhu made many allegations against Captain Amarinder Singh. He accused the captain of protecting the Badal family in the Guru Granth Sahib sacrilege and police firing case. Along with this, he also accused the CM of complicating the investigation of the Kotkapura firing case.

Sidhu has even alleged that the Captain wanted to save the real culprits and was working with Shiromani Akali Dal. Amarinder Singh, however, has denied the allegations and openly challenged Navjot Singh Sidhu, demanding action against him for indulging in party indiscipline.

The top leadership of Congress wants to take Sidhu forward, while Sidhu’s dispute with CM Amarinder is increasing continuously. Now it has to be seen where this discord of Punjab Congress ends.
