Punjab Politics: Navjot Singh Sidhu, a cricketer who has become a politician, will continue as the President of the Punjab Congress. Congress general secretary Harish Rawat said this after a meeting with Sidhu at the party headquarters in Punjab. Congress senior KCR Venugopal was also present at the meeting. Navjot Singh Sidhu submitted his resignation by tweeting last month. Sidhu was unhappy with the appointments made under Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channy and the cabinet reshuffle. He announced his resignation.
At the same time, Navjot Singh Sidhu said he would accept any decision taken by the Congress president. The Congress supremacy gave clear instructions that he should act as the President of the Punjab Congress and set up an institutional structure. At the same time, Harish Rawat said after the meeting that the decision would be officially announced soon. However, this time Sidhu was also under pressure. He said he had conveyed all his concerns to the High Command regarding Punjab. He said he had full faith in Sonia, Priyanka and Rahul Gandhi and whatever decision they took was for the benefit of the Congress and Punjab.
Sidhu dissatisfied with Director General of Police appointments.
In fact, last month Chief Minister Charanjit Singh replaced Channi Amarinder Singh as the Chief Minister of the state. Sidhu was reportedly dissatisfied with the allocation of cabinet portfolios and the appointments of the Advocate General and the Director General of Police. Although the All India Congress Committee (AICC) has not taken any decision on Sidhu’s resignation, Channy and some state leaders have been trying to persuade the Punjab Congress chief to withdraw his resignation.
The appointment of new office bearers and district heads of the Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee (PPCC) has not yet taken place. Despite strong opposition from then Chief Minister Amarinder Singh, Sidhu was appointed Punjab Congress chief in July. The party has also appointed four working presidents to the PPCC. Later, the Punjab Congress appointed two general secretaries and a treasurer.
