Last chance for damage control: Sidhu says won't let real issues of Punjab take back seat

Amid high drama within the Punjab Congress, the party’s state unit chief Navjot Singh Sidhu on Sunday said he would stick to the real issues of Punjab and won’t let them take a back seat.

In a series of tweets, Sidhu said, “Punjab must come back to its real issues that concern every Punjabi and our future generations How will we counter the financial emergency that stares upon us? I will stick to the real issues and not let them take a back seat.”

“The choice is clear between irreparable damage and the last chance for damage control. Who will bring back the state’s resources to the state’s coffers, instead of them going to private pockets? Who will lead the initiative for resurrection of our great state to prosperity?” he added.

Punjab must come back to its real issues that concern every punjabi and our future generations How will we counter the financial emergency that stares upon us ? I will stick to the real issues and not let them take a backseat ! 1/3

— Navjot Singh Sidhu (@sherryontopp) October 24, 2021

Sidhu said it is time to shun those who protect their “selfish vested interests” and focus on the path of development. “Let the mist clear, reality shine like the sun upon the roadmap for revival of Punjab, shunning those who protect the selfish vested interests and focus only on the path that will lead to Jittega Punjab, Jittegi Punjabiyat and Jittega Har Punjabi,” he said in the tweet.

According to reports, differences are growing between Navjot Singh Sidhu and Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi even as the party high command tries to make peace between the two leaders.

Despite a shift in state leadership ahead of next year’s state assembly polls, the Punjab Congress is still struggling to have a clear roadmap. On October 16, Sidhu sent a letter to Congress president Sonia Gandhi, asking her to include his 13-point agenda in the 2022 poll manifesto. Channi has reportedly offered to quit and challenged Sidhu to fulfill the agenda within two months.

On September 28, Navjot Singh Sidhu had resigned as Punjab Congress president following trouble within the party’s Punjab unit. After days of meetings with top party leadership, Navjot Singh Sidhu finally withdrew his resignation on October 15.
