The Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee has been sitting silently as assembly elections are not far and moreover, there is no sign of strengthening of the party by the PPCC President Capt Amarinder Singh.
As per the information, the party has been working not even up to the mark in the state and still there is factionalism prevailing in the party. Even Capt Amarinder Singh has been waiting for the official announcement of his candidature as CM candidate of the party in the assembly polls.
The political atmosphere in Punjab Congress is not heated up as party cadre is waiting for the official announcement of the Chief Ministerial candidate by the party high command.
However, the differences between the top leadership have not been sinking as still there are factions against Capt Amarinder Singh. The former PPCC President and incumbent Rajya Sabha MP Partap Singh Bajwa is not in the good terms with Amarinder. Even the other Rajya Sabha MP, Shamsher Singh Dullo has cornered himself from Amarinder because the PPCC president had given the name of Hans Raj Hans for the Rajya Sabha nomination but when Dullo approached the high command, the name of Sufi singer was dropped from the list in the eleventh hour.
The two senior leaders Jagmeet Brar and Bir Devinder Singh already facing expulsion from the party and definitely their absence would affect the party in the assembly polls.
There is no much time left for the assembly polls and the party has not pulled up its socks to give a tough fight to the rivals. Already the Punjab Congress has witnessed two consecutive defeats in the assembly polls. If the party would not be strengthened its cadre across the state then definitely it would taste the third consecutive defeat in the polls.
It is evident that the Congress leaders have not eliminated their differences and the rift between the top leadership would put the party on a political ventilator.
