“Factionalism and growing differences between the party members and leadership has put the party on the verge of collapse. Causing embarrassment to top leadership yet another time, some of the state leaders in Punjab have gone on record to predict 3rd rank for party in upcoming assembly polls.”
While Congress Party and its Punjab state chief, Captain Amarinder Singh are leaving no stone unturned to register a poll victory, state leaders on other hand are making their job challenging day by day.
Oligarchy rules the grand old party of country from top to bottom. Captain might be shouting aloud of unity within the party but in reality Punjab unit of Congress has been reduced to splinter. Adding to the woes of party, dissident leader and former MP, Jagmeet Singh Brar has gone on record to state that party has slipped third position in Punjab after the ruling SAD-BJP combine and much talked about Aam Aadmi Party. It is noteworthy that similar views are getting echoed from other state leaders.
Factionalism within the party
Whether it was due to the state leadership or nomination to Rajya Sabha, Punjab unit of Congress was always burning with serious internal conflicts. Ahead of assembly polls, former CM and MP from Amritsar had put the party high command in a tight spot, demanding that former Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee (PPCC), President was removed from the post.
Going all out to prove his point, Amarinder Singh had arm-twisted with party high command by threatening to quit the party if Bajwa was not removed as Pradesh Congress Committee president.
Internal feud within Congress party in Punjab never refuses to die down and ahead of assembly polls the differences are growing. Putting a question mark on party claims of winning the upcoming elections in Punjab, congress leaders are witnessed getting their hands dirty in public domain.
