Conflicts arose between CM Channi and Sidhu once more, resulting in an impasse at a meeting designed to nominate candidates.
After releasing its first list of 86 candidates for the upcoming Punjab Assembly elections, the Congress Chief Election Committee met on Saturday to discuss the second list, which remained inconclusive due to a disagreement between Punjab Congress Chief Navjot Singh Sindhu and Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi.

The committee includes KC Venugopal, the Congress General Secretary, Ambika Soni, and Ajay Maken, the chairman of the Congress Screening Committee for Punjab.

The Central Election Committee (CEC), led by Sonia Gandhi, was supposed to declare the remaining 31 party candidates for the impending Punjab elections today, but it failed to do so.

A subcommittee of the party has been constituted to discuss the party's candidates for the remaining 31 seats. The committee includes KC Venugopal, the Congress General Secretary, Ambika Soni, and Ajay Maken, the chairman of the Congress Screening Committee of Punjab: Sources

On these seats, there's a ruckus.
The Batala seat is causing a commotion in Congress. Navjot Sidhu wants to give Ashwani Shekhari, a Hindu, a ticket from here. Minister Tript Rajinder Bajwa, on the other hand, is looking for a ticket for himself or a relative. Chief Secretary Husan Lal and Congress's Tirlochan Singh are keeping a watch on the Bengala seat. At the same time, a decision could be made to offer tickets to former Adampur MP Mohinder KP and Majitha's Bhagwant Sachar. Aside from that, Shri Hargobindpur Balwinder Ladi, an MLA, may be handed a ticket.
