In a major development, the newly appointed Punjab Pradesh Congress Chief Navjot Sidhu has sent an invite to Capt Amarinder Singh to become a part of an event on Friday amid the escalating tension.
In this event, the cricketer turned politician will formally assume charge as President of Punjab Congress at 11 am on Friday at Chandigarh office.
As per the information acquired from the sources, 65 MLAs
signed the invite to accommodate Punjab CM in the state unit’s gathering on
According to the sources, the newly elected four working presidents along with Sidhu have also sent an invitation to Punjab CM to join the event.
Additionally, an invite has also been sent to Congress general secretary and in charge Punjab Congress Affairs, Harish Rawat, who had most likely convinced Capt Amarinder Singh to abide by the truce formula to end tension in the state unit.
Notably, Sidhu’s invite has come a day after Media Adviser to Punjab CM, Raveen Thukral, refuted reports of Capt Amarinder’s meeting with Sidhu until the latter issues a public apology for his derogatory attacks against CM on social media.
However, now it will remain evident to see if Punjab CM
will accept Sidhu’s invitation to join him on his special day or the longstanding
feud between the two leaders will further widen.
