The Punjab Congress seems to be in the troubled waters as the PPCC President has been showing his desperateness for Sidhu and finally, he is going to offer him the post of Deputy Chief Minister.
According to the sources in the Punjab Congress, the PPCC President Capt Amarinder Singh is still in the vacillating condition for Navjot Singh Sidhu.
The upcoming Punjab assembly polls would be the acid test for the former Chief Minister of Punjab, Amarinder Singh, as he has already witnessed two consecutive defeats in the last two assembly elections.
So, the desperate Punjab Congress head Amarinder Singh is keen to get the cricketer turned politician Navjot Singh Sidhu into the party fold. When the former BJP MP Navjot Singh Sidhu resigned from the Rajya Sabha seat, Amarinder Singh had shown his keenness to get Sidhu into the party.
At that time, he tried to please Sidhu and told that his father was the Congress leader from Patiala. Amarinder also told that he also hails from Sidhu clan. When Sidhu announced his new platform Awaz-e-Punjab, Amarinder took a u-turn and lambasted at Sidhu.
However, the incumbent Punjab Congress head has been desperately changing statements for Sidhu. Sometimes he looks annoyed with Sidhu, but he wants Sidhu’s entry into Punjab Congress so that the party’s chances of winning the polls could be enhanced.
The Punjab Congress has already lost the two assembly elections consecutively in the headship of Amarinder Singh and now the party has been contesting under his leadership for the third time.
Amarinder Singh is confused these days as all programs made by the party’s poll strategist Prashant Kishore has totally failed. So, that’s why Amarinder needs a prominent face because he knows that he alone can’t do anything so that’s why he is showing his desperateness for Navjot Singh Sidhu.
