Punjab: Congress infighting escalates as senior leader seeks action against Navjot Singh Sidhu

Highlights

  • Punjab Congress in-charge Harish Chaudhary wrote to senior leadership.
  • He sought action against former PCC chief Navjot Singh Sidhu.
  • In the letter, Chaudhary forwarded the notes submitted to him by current PCC chief Raja Warring.

There seems to be no end to the Punjab Congress infighting even after the two months of the Assembly polls. Harish Chaudhary, AICC in charge of Punjab, has written a letter to Congress interim chief Sonia Gandhi wherein he has sought disciplinary action against former Punjab Congress chief Navjot Singh Sidhu.

"It has also been my observation that Sidhu continuously criticised the functioning of the Congress government, terming it corrupt and hand in glove with the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD)," Chaudhary said in the letter dated April 23.

"As the party was fighting the elections, it was inappropriate for Sidhu to set such a precedent. In spite of my repeated advice to Sidhu to avoid such activities, he continued to spread against the government relentlessly," he said in the letter which he forwarded to the party high command along with Punjab Congress chief Amrinder Singh Raja Warring's detailed note regarding Sidhu's current activities.

Chaudhary also pointed out Sidhu's ''inexcusable'' actions at the assumption ceremony of Warring. He said that Sidhu just greeted the incumbent PCC chief and left, while other leaders presented a united front. 

Chaudhary said that disciplinary action should be taken against Sidhu and said that he must be asked for an explanation.

Not long ago, Sidhu blamed Amarinder Singh and Charanjit Singh Channi –- the two Congress chief ministers who ran the state in the past five years – for failing to crack down on the “mafia”, reported PTI.

He said he will support Mann, whose Aam Aadmi Party trounced the Congress in the recent assembly polls if he fights the mafia.
