After dismissing ‘fight’ over Rahul Gandhi’s ‘no meeting’, Navjot Singh Sidhu may get time with Congress leader today

A day after Punjab MLA Navjot Singh Sidhu’s office claimed he has been called to Delhi for a meeting Rahul Gandhi, the former Congress president said that there is no such meeting. It is now being told in media reports that the meeting will be held on Wednesday.

‘There is no meeting. I don’t know what ruckus you are creating…’, Gandhi told reporters on Tuesday while leaving his Tughlaq Lane residence.

He was asked if he was getting Sidhu, as claimed by the office of the former Punjab minister.

Rahul and Priyanka Gandhi are trying to bring all Congress leaders including Sidhu on a common platform and present a united Congress ahead of the elections.

Rahul Gandhi has been meeting the leaders of Punjab for the past few days ahead of the infighting in the Punjab Congress and the impending reform of the party and the state cabinet.

The Congress leadership is all set for a change in the state unit in Punjab ahead of next year’s assembly elections.

Rahul Gandhi has met several ministers, MLAs and MPs including Brahm Mohindra, Vijay Inder Singla, Balbir Singh Sidhu and Rajya Sabha member Shamsher Singh Dullo and MLA Lakhvir Singh Lakh.

He has already met state Congress chief Sunil Jakhar and Rajya Sabha member and former Punjab Congress chief Pratap Singh Bajwa.

Sidhu, who resigned from the Punjab cabinet in 2019 after being dropped from the local bodies department, has been at loggerheads with Chief Minister Amarinder Singh. He has attacked the Chief Minister over the alleged delay in justice in incidents of sacrilege in 2015 and subsequent police firing.

Singh had criticized Sidhu for repeatedly attacking him on the issue of sacrilege and termed Sidhu’s criticism as “complete indiscipline”.

Earlier this month, Sidhu appeared before a three-member panel set up by the Congress to resolve squabbles within the party’s state unit.

On June 22, Singh appeared before a panel headed by Leader of Opposition in the Rajya Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge in Delhi. However, he returned to Chandigarh without an audience with party president Sonia Gandhi or Rahul Gandhi.

AICC general secretary in-charge of Punjab affairs Harish Rawat and former MP JP Agarwal are the members of the panel.
