The Congress central leadership has tasked state-in-charge Harish Rawat with resolving the long-standing dispute between Amarinder Singh and Navjot Singh Sidhu.
[23:11, 4/27/2021] RADHIKA: The rift between Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh and MLA Navjot Singh Sidhu widened further on Tuesday, with Mr Singh challenging his former minister to stand against him from Patiala – the Assembly constituency that has voted for him in four consecutive state elections.
The Chief Minister told Mr Sidhu he would be defeated as comprehensively as the BJP’s General JJ Singh, who contested the 2017 election but finished with over 60,000 votes behind Mr Singh and with just 11.1 per cent of the votes, forfeited his security deposit as a result.
“I don’t know where he will go or which party he will join. Akali Dal is upset with him and BJP won’t accept him,so most likely AAP. If he wants to contest against me from Patiala he will meet the same fate as General JJ Singh, who lost his security deposits,” Mr Singh said in an interview to a private channel.
