A day after Congress High Command reacted on the reports of infighting within its Punjab unit, the cricketer-turned-politician Navjot Sidhu has once again in a veiled attack aimed at Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh, asked for proof of his meeting with another Party’s leader.
Navjot Sidhu on Saturday through a tweet said, “Prove one meeting that I have had with another Party’s leader ?! I have never asked anyone for any post till date. All I seek is Punjab’s prosperity !! Was invited & offered Cabinet berths many times but I did not accept Now, Our Esteemed High Command has intervened, Will wait...”
It was Punjab CM Captain Amarinder Singh, who during an interview to a private channel on April 29 alleged that Navjot Sidhu has met Delhi Chief Minister Kejriwal multiple times and can switch sides any moment.
However, Navjot Sidhu has time and again claimed that he has no plans of switching party and is only concerned about Punjab real issues i.e. drugs, mafia, sacrilege case justice, etc.
Charging the Chief Minister with taking action against his own party leaders instead, Sidhu, in a tweet on Thursday, said: "In 2019, I began & ended my Election Campaign in Punjab seeking - Justice for Sacrilege of Guru Granth Sahib Ji & punishing the culprits & the ONE shielding them... Now, Our MLAs & Party Workers must go to Delhi & speak the Truth of Punjab to our High Command, as I regularly do."
Meanwhile, on Friday Congress General Secretary, Organisation, K.C. Venugopal reacting on internal conflict in Punjab Congress said: "We are watching it and will take a call on it" while terming it an "organisational issue".
It is being learnt that the Congress High Command is likely to constitute a committee to look into the issue in Punjab, and bring it to an end as the Assembly elections are due next year.
