Chandigarh: Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh’s office on Tuesday rubbished reports that Punjab Congress chief Navjot Singh Sidhu has sought an appointment with him. The Chief Minister’s media advisor clarified that Sidhu has not sought an appointment with him.
The media advisor also announced that the Chief Minister would not meet Sidhu until the cricketer-turned-politician publicly expresses regret for the personal derogatory attacks made against him on social media.
It was earlier reported that the Chief Minister had also placed the condition of apology during his meeting with Harish Rawat, the party’s in-charge of state affairs.
Captain Amarinder Singh has not congratulated Sindhu even 48 hours after he was elevated as the Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee (PPCC) president.
In the backdrop of simmering tensions in the Punjab Congress unit, the Chief Minister had earlier on Saturday met Rawat and stated that any decision taken by the Congress president Sonia Gandhi will be acceptable to all.
Sidhu has over the last few months been vocal against Captain Amarinder Singh and had also lashed out at him earlier over the “unfulfilled promises” ahead of the 2022 Punjab Assembly elections.
