Punjab Congress Crisis:
Amidst the political turmoil in Punjab, big news has emerged out recently. After the resignation of Navjot Singh Sidhu, the name of Preneet Kaur is coming up for the Punjab Congress President. Preneet Kaur is the wife of former CM Captain Amarinder Singh. Preneet Kaur is also a Lok Sabha MP from Patiala, Punjab. As per the reports, after Sidhu's resignation, the high command is in no mood to persuade him.
As per the reports, the party leadership is very angry with the act of resignation of Navjot Singh Sidhu and if Sidhu does not withdraw the resignation then someone else can be made the President of Punjab Congress in his place. However, Sidhu’s replacement as the state president has not been decided yet.
Reports state that there are options of 3-4 names in front of the party leadership. Both Rahul and Priyanka are angry with Sidhu's behavior, while Priyanka Gandhi's advisor Vibhakar Shastri has even demanded the expulsion of Sidhu from the party. At present, there is no talk between Sidhu and the high command.
Captain Amarinder Singh, an important face of Congress, has heated up the political scenario by meeting Amit Shah in Delhi. Amit Shah and Captain Amarinder met for about 45 minutes. After Amit Shah, Captain Amarinder can now meet JP Nadda. There is speculation that the BJP may make Captain a minister at the Center through the Rajya Sabha and Captain Amarinder Singh may get an offer to become Agriculture Minister.
