In its report on Punjab Congress, the committee has said that if serious differences in Punjab Congress are not resolved in time, then there will be a lot of loss in the next assembly elections.
New Delhi. The three-member committee formed by Sonia Gandhi has sent its report to the high command to resolve the dispute arising in Punjab Congress. The committee has prepared a formula for reconciliation between Captain Amarinder Singh and Navjot Singh Sidhu and other rebel leaders in Punjab. Two plans have been told about Sidhu in the report. Under this plan, the demand of some leaders to make Navjot Singh Sidhu the state president has also been mentioned. It has also been said that if the captain does not agree to this, then Sidhu can be made the Deputy Chief Minister and the chairman of the election campaign committee or the chairman of the election management committee.
The committee said in its report that if serious differences in Punjab Congress are not resolved in time, then there will be a lot of loss in the next assembly elections and despite the positive atmosphere, the chances of victory are waning. Steps should be taken to retain Sidhu in the organisation. Sidhu is a popular and crowd puller, who is also useful for the party in other states. They should be appointed in the organization or government. Sonia Gandhi has to take the final decision after the committee submits the report.
According to the report, barring a select few, most of the leaders are in favor of Amarinder Singh. That is why the committee has indicated to keep him as the leader. In such a situation, it is clear that the captain is in a strong position and he has a hold on both power and organization. The Chief Minister will remain the same. Amarinder Singh is the biggest face of the party in the state. However, the report has recommended the creation of another Deputy Chief Minister, who may be of Captain’s choice. Along with this, it has also been recommended to change the state president.
The committee has also suggested to accommodate some angry MLAs and leaders in corporations and boards. It has also been said in the report that whatever decision the high command takes, take it quickly. So that the party can be saved from loss. Apart from this, it has also been suggested to form committees for elections at the earliest. Such as election management committee, coordination committee, election campaign committee and screening committee etc. It is believed that the party will take a decision on the report soon. The report also suggested the formation of a coordination committee for better coordination between the state government and the organization.
