Sidhu can't be made Deputy CM or State Party Chief, CM Amarinder Singh

The post of chairman of the campaign committee may be offered to Sidhu.

As the three-member panel headed by Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge went into a huddle to finalise its report in Delhi, the dissident group in the Punjab Congress is learnt to have decided to sustain its pressure against Chief Minister Capt. Amarinder Singh ahead of a decision by the party high command.

Amidst reports from the party circles that there will be no change in the state leadership, the dissidents plan a meeting in the coming days to strategise on the future course of action.

As more details of the meeting between the panel and CM emerge, it is learnt Amarinder, while listing out facts and figures, has not agreed to the appointment of Navjot Singh Sidhu as PPCC president.

In the event of change of guard in the PPCC, there is likelihood of the Rahul Gandhi team zeroing in on a Dalit or Hindu face, agreeable to the CM. The post of chairman of the campaign committee may be offered to Sidhu.

The CM is learnt to have said the details to the Vigilance complaint against Sidhu and complaint against Jalandhar Cantt MLA Pargat Singh from the District Congress Committee office had already been forwarded to Congress chief Sonia Gandhi. The issues were not discussed in yesterday’s meeting, it is learnt.
