Congress leader Rahul Gandhi's bid to sideline Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh to promote Navjot Singh Sidhu has backfired.Navjot Singh Sidhu has put the party in trouble by resigning from the post of Congress President.However, Sidhu has not left the Congress party yet.On Tuesday, he said that he would continue to work for the Congress.He has not given the reason for resigning.
Questions are being raised in the political corridors that why didNavjot Singh Sidhu resign?Why did he leave the post of Congress party president?It is being told that when Captain Amarinder Singh was forced to resign from the post of Chief Minister, Sidhu felt that his dream of becoming Chief Minister would now be fulfilled.Or he will make whomever he wants, he will be made the Chief Minister of Punjab, but it did not happen.
After Captain Amarinder Singh's announcement that ifNavjot Singh Sidhuwas made the Chief Minister, he would launch a big movement in the state.After this Sidhu thought of making the Chief Minister of his choice.There was talk of making Punjab Pradesh Congress vice-president Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa the first chief minister for Navjot Singh Sidhu, who batted the most.It was almost decided that Randhawa would take oath.
The decision changed before the announcement.The Congress high command announced the replacement of Randhawa, Dalit leader Charanjit Singh Channi, as the CM of Punjab.Two Deputy Chief Ministers were also made with him.It was said that this is the masterstroke of Rahul Gandhi before the 2022 Punjab elections.But, Navjot Singh Sidhu did not like this decision of the Congress high command and he has now resigned from the post of Congress President.
The way Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi divided the cabinet and included ministers in the cabinet, Sidhu also did not like it.It is being told that apart from making APS Deol as Attorney General (AG) of Punjab, Sidhu is also angry with Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa being made Home Minister and Rana Gurjit being included in the cabinet.In the resignation he has sent to the high command, it is clearly written that I cannot compromise with the interests of Punjab.
Now that Navjot Singh Sidhu has resigned from the post of Punjab Pradesh Congress President, questions are being raised on the decision of Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi.It was under pressure from Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi that Congress working president Sonia Gandhi had to say 'sorry' to Captain Amarinder Singh.
Along with this, analysts also said that what former Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh had said proved to be true.Captain Amarinder Singh had said that Navjot Singh Sidhu is an unstable person.Pakistan's PM is a friend of Imran Khan and its Chief of Army Staff, Qamar Javed Bajwa.Punjab is a border state.If Sidhu gets power, he will become a threat to national security.
In his first reaction in New Delhi after Sidhu's resignation from the post of Punjab Pradesh Congress President, Captain Amarinder Singh reiterated his earlier point of view.Said I had said that this man is not stable.This is not true for a border state like Punjab.
