I am a born Congressman, did not change parties like Sidhu

Minister Rana Gurjit said that Sidhu should talk about a true Congressman with his tongue. Sidhu came to the party only to become the CM, whereas he is in Congress since birth. I have not changed parties like Sidhu. It is unfortunate that only one political opportunist is accusing those who have spent their whole life in the service of the party.

Sidhu is jealous of CM Channi, Sidhu splits the party

Minister Rana Gurjit said that Navjot Sidhu is feeling jealous and insecure with the growing popularity of Punjab CM Charanjit Channi. For this reason, he is questioning the government led by CM Channi. Rana also accused Sidhu of weakening the party. The minister said that as the party chief, the responsibility of Sidhu is to keep everyone united. Sidhu did nothing of the sort. Instead, Sidhu tried his best to create a divide in the campaign, manifesto and screening committee formed by the Congress high command.

There was an attempt to stop Rana from becoming a minister.

The Sidhu camp had tried to stop Rana Gurjit from becoming a minister. A letter was also written by the MLAs and senior leaders of Doaba in view of the threat of increasing the dominance of Rana. With which Sidhu also came to Chandigarh and gave it to the Congress Observers and Incharge, but he did not work. Despite great opposition, Rana became a minister.
