The AICC panel on Punjab has called CM Capt Amarinder Singh and his detractor ex-minister Navjot Singh Sidhu to the Capital on June 22 as instructed by Congress president Sonia Gandhi, who wants factionalism in the Punjab unit to end at the earliest. However, there has been little headway owing to the lack of consensus on Sidhu’s ‘accommodation’.
Congress sources said Deputy CM’s post was all that Captain was willing to concede to Sidhu, but the latter wants to be appointed Punjab Congress president. It is also learnt that the CM is adamant on appointing two Deputy CMs. The ball, the sources said, was in Sidhu’s court.
