The internal dispute within the Punjab Congress is growing. In the midst of all this confusion, it has come to light that the party has now demanded the resignation of Capt Amarinder Singh as the Chief Minister. According to sources, the Congress High Command has ordered the resignation of Amarinder Singh. In addition, the Legislative Party meeting in the evening has been ordered to select a new leader. After getting information about this, Amarinder Singh has now discussed with senior Congress leader Kamal Nath and MP Manish Tiwari. Meanwhile, Amarinder Singh had earlier said that he would leave the party if he was removed from the post of Chief Minister.
Punjab is not taking the name of stopping the ongoing chaos in the Congress. Despite all efforts, the political battle between Amarinder Singh and his arch-rival Navjot Singh Sidhu did not end. Ahead of a crucial meeting of MLAs on Saturday, Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh has commented to Sonia Gandhi on the issue. “You can’t stay in Congress with such insults,” said Amarinder Singh.
A few months before the Assembly elections, the discussion of a change of leadership in the Punjab Congress government has intensified at a meeting of MLAs in Chandigarh. Amarinder Singh has told party president Sonia Gandhi, “Such an insult is enough. This is happening for the third time. I can’t stand for such an insult. ”
In the last few months, a group of MLAs who are considered to be Navjot Singh Sidhu’s supporters have revolted against Amarinder Singh and demanded a new leader. Sunil Jakhar, grandson of former Punjab Congress president Pratap Singh Bajwa and Beant Singh and MP Ravneet Singh Bittu are fighting for a possible new Punjab chief minister.
The All India Congress Committee (AICC) has convened a meeting of the state Congress Legislative Party on Saturday amid ongoing turmoil in the Punjab Congress. The announcement was made by AICC general secretary and Punjab in-charge Harish Rawat on Friday night. But now that information about Amarinder Singh’s resignation has come to light, he has expressed surprise.
