Navjot Singh Sidhu will continue as the Punjab Congress chief, said Harish Rawat after a party meeting on Thursday.
Navjot Singh Sidhu had resigned as the Punjab Congress chief on September 28 after he posted his resignation letter on Twitter. No decision on his resignation has been taken by the party leadership yet.
After the meeting on Thursday, Congress leader Harish Rawat said issues within the party will be resolved through talks. “We will resolve all issues through talks…Sidhu and [Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh] Channi have spoken on all issues and some resolution will be reached soon,” he said.
“It is clear that Sidhu will continue as the PCC chief and should strengthen the organisation,” Harish Rawat said.
Harish Rawat’s statement came after Navjot Singh Sidhu met him and AICC general secretary (organisation) KC Venugopal on Thursday.
During the meeting, Navjot Singh Sidhu raised his concerns over the 18-point agenda taken by the leadership on which actions are pending. These include action against those involved in the sacrilege issue and the drug mafia.
After the meeting, Navjot Singh Sidhu said he has full faith in the leadership of party chief Sonia Gandhi and any decision taken by her will be acceptable.
“I have raised my concerns about Punjab and Punjab Congress before the party high command and I have full faith in Congress president Sonia Gandhi, Rahul ji and Priyanka ji that whatever decision they take will be in the interest of the Congress and Punjab,” Navjot Singh Sidhu said.
“I always consider them supreme and will follow every direction given by them,” Navjot Singh Sidhu said told reporters.
Meanwhile, senior party leaders said a final decision on Navjot Singh Sidhu’s resignation would be taken by Friday and there would be clarity on the issue.
