If Sidhu does not agree, then what to do, Congress is also thinking about this.
New Delhi: Congress is looking for a new state president in Punjab. If Navjot Singh Sidhu does not agree, then the responsibility of this post can potentially be handed over to the former Finance Minister of Punjab, six-time MLA Lal Singh. According to sources, Lal Singh, who previously held several government and organizational posts, may be made the state president of the party. While he is considered close to former chief minister Amarinder Singh, the party is also considering other names.Also Read – Former Goa CM Luizinho Faleiro, who left the ‘hand’ of Congress, joined TMC
Congress is considering few names for immediate replacement and one of them is Anandpur Sahib MP Manish Tewari. The names of Ravneet Singh Bittu and Amarinder Singh’s opponent Pratap Singh Bajwa are also in discussion from Ludhiana MP and Amarinder Singh’s camp. Former PCC president Sunil Jakhar, who recently missed out on the chief minister’s post during the process of change of guard, is also likely to be considered.

Sources said that General Secretary and Congress in-charge of Punjab Harish Rawat and Rajasthan Revenue Minister Harish Chaudhary are talking to all the senior leaders and they themselves are camping at some unknown place in Delhi. The possibility of meeting former Chief Minister Amarinder Singh is also not ruled out, as he has vacated Kapurthala House in Delhi on Tuesday night.

Congress also wants to pacify former Chief Minister Amarinder Singh. Bittu, on the other hand, can be considered a political lineage (grandson of former Punjab Chief Minister Beant Singh) and has good relations with the party’s central leadership. However, Rawat’s office says that he will speak if needed. Navjot Singh Sidhu said that he will fight for the truth till his last breath as the fight is for those principles which he will not compromise on. In a video message posted on his Twitter handle, Sidhu said, “I will fight for the truth till my last breath.”
Sidhu categorically said, “This is not a personal fight but a fight for principles. I will not compromise on principles.” He said that he would not accept the bringing back of tainted ministers in the newly formed state cabinet headed by Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi for the first time in the state.
The cricketer-turned-politician said in a video message shared in Punjabi that his only religion is to make people’s lives better. Sidhu also said that he fought for justice and for the agenda of Punjab.
