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.

The Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee President, Capt Amarinder Singh seems to be lost his senses as he is frequently changing his statements for the former BJP MP Navjot Singh Sidhu.

Amarinder Singh said that Sidhu is welcome to join the party. In fact, the PPCC head is totally confused over the Sidhu’s next move and frequently showing his eagerness for the cricketer turned politician.

In Amritsar, Amarinder said that everyone was “welcome” to join the party “without any condition” and “whoever does so, would have to follow a certain discipline”. If Sidhu wants to join Congress, the doors of the party would remain open for him.

He told that Sidhu’s ‘Awaaz-e-Punjab’ front was “welcome” to merge with the Congress.
Amarinder Singh has been changing his colours on Navjot Singh Sidhu.  Earlier, he raised questions at Sidhu’s credibility to change the 120-year-old history of Congress party. He said that party would take him if he would come unconditionally.

When Sidhu had resigned from the post of Rajya Sabha MP, the PPCC President told that Sidhu could adhere to the party and the doors of the party would always remain open for him.

At that time Amarinder Singh had also stated that Sidhu’s father was his friend and he is from Sidhu clan. He had appreciated the move of Sidhu’s resignation from the Rajya Sabha.

However, Sidhu announced a platform ‘Awaz-e-Punjab’ and Amarinder had changed his stance for Sidhu. He told that Sidhu is a misguided missile and the platform would result in a failure.

Amarinder Singh even remarked that who knew Sidhu in Punjab and Punjab Congress didn’t bother that whether Sidhu formed his political outfit.

However, the PPCC President is totally confused over Sidhu as he wants that Sidhu joins the party. Even he is also showing his desperation for Sidhu as Amarinder is popular for his opportunism.

Captain desperate to keep Congress’ Sinking ship afloat

Punjab electoral battle seems more interesting this time as a lot “unexpected” is happening. In this Tsunami of “hits and trials” and “sought out plans”, Congress has decided to follow the approach of “make hay while the sun shines”. But the problem here is to make sure if the sun is really shining or its just some temporary brightness that may seem shiny but is an illusion.

Golden Opportunity: Navjot Singh Sidhu
Let us clear this air by coming to the point. Two big “political tsunamis” that happened in the last week is resignation of Navjot Singh Sidhu from Rajya Sabha and suspension of Akali MLA Pargat Singh from BJP-SAD. Although Sidhu did not give any statement or cited any reason for his resignation; but Congress surely sees this act of him as a “golden opportunity”. Captain clearly welcomed Sidhu in the party and even reminded him of the “past times” when his father was a part of Congress party. Getting no response from Mr. Sidhu, the focus of Congress shifted to another “expelled member” i.e. Pargat Singh.

“Topic of Interest”: Pargat Singh
A meeting was held in Delhi to discuss the further plans and moves. As per the sources, a major part of this discussion involved the former Olympian. Asha Kumari, Capt Amarinder, Charanjit Channi, and Ambika Soni were present at the meeting. Pargat singh, however, showed no interest in this proposal of Captain Amarinder Singh.

Rat Race
Calling the “expelled or resigned” members in his party, other members of Congress were annoyed with Captain Amarinder Singh. Sources claim that some party members sent an e-mail to President Sonia Gandhi to complain about this “annoying behavior” of Amarinder Singh. “Competition threat” can be other reason of Congress party workers for not allowing “wild card entry” of any outsider in the semi-finals of this race.

The recent action of Captain Amarinder Singh clearly hints towards the uncertainty and immature plans of the party. It’s like Captain wants to take any risk to win after two defeats in Punjab.
