Navjot Singh Sidhu appointed President of Punjab Congress despite major opposition by CM Amarinder

Navjot Singh Sidhu was on Sunday appointed as the President of the Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee, despite a major opposition by Chief Minister Amarinder Singh. 

Sangat Singh Gilzian, Sukhwinder Singh Danny, Pawan Goel and Kuljit Singh Nagra were made the working presidents of the state unit. 

“Congress President has appointed Navjot Singh Sidhu as the President of Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee with immediate effect.  Congress President has also appointed following persons as working presidents of Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee: Sangat Singh Gilzian, Sukhwinder Singh Danny, Pawan Goel, Kuljit Singh Nagra,” an official release read. 

Earlier in the day, at least 11 MLAs on Sunday came out in support of Chief Minister Amarinder Singh whom they called the “tallest leader of masses” and appealed to the party high command not to let him down. Meanwhile, cricketer-turned-politician Sidhu had also stepped up his efforts and reached out to more party leaders and legislators for their support.

There have been a series of meetings in Chandigarh and elsewhere in Punjab, held by Singh and Sidhu separately, to work out last minute strategies ahead of the party revamp.
