Navjot Singh Sidhu resigns as Punjab Congress president; Captain Amarinder Singh speculated to meet HM Amit Shah

Captain Amarinder Singh, the Former Chief Minister of Punjab called Navjot Singh Sidhu an anti-national and slammed him for his close association with Pak PM Imran Khan Niazi and Army Chief Qamar Bajwa.

 

Congress PCC Chief Navjot Singh Sidhu has resigned from the post of the Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee barely ten days after Captain Amarinder Singh stepped down as the state chief minister.

The ongoing crisis in the Punjab Congress unit will have a major impact on the party as it prepares for re-election in the 2022 Assembly polls.

The hasty exit of Sidhu from the post of Punjab Congress chief just two-and-a-half months into his tenure yet again indicates that his objective was to dethrone Amarinder from the post of CM.

Meanwhile, former Punjab CM is speculated to meet HM Amit Shah and BJP Chief J P Nadda in Delhi.

Captain Amarinder Singh calls Sidhu an 'anti-national', says Rahul-Priyanka inexperienced to lead Congress party

Former Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh has slammed the state Congress president Navjot Singh Sidhu for his proximity with the Pakistani establishment and organising rebellion within the Congress party. In an interview given to 'the week' magazine, the captain also called Sidhu an anti-national and reiterated that he would do everything to stop Sidhu from becoming the CM of Punjab.

"Rahul and Priyanka, who are themselves quite inexperienced, were fed all kinds of nonsense by their advisers, like (AICC general secretary) K. C. Venugopal. It is unfortunate that after [me putting in] so many years of loyal service to the Congress, the party leadership chose to trust them over me," Amarinder Singh said.

"It is my responsibility as a Punjabi to do my best to protect my state and my people from such anti-nationals like Sidhu, who is a danger for all of us," he added. He pointed out Sidhu's friendship with the Pakistan PM Imran Khan and Army chief Bajwa and said that it was a disaster to have him the CM of Punjab since it shares an international border with Pakistan.

When asked about his future course of action, the captain said that he was yet to decide on that.
