Amarinder complains to Sonia about Sidhu

Punjab chief minister Captain Amarinder Singh has raised his concerns to Congress interim president Sonia Gandhi regarding the recent statements made by Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee Chief Navjot Singh Sidhu.

According to party sources, Captain Amarinder Singh ‘complained’ to Sonia Gandhi that Sidhu’s criticism of his government is not good for its smooth functioning and gives a bad impression in the public domain.

Captain expressed his views to Sonia Gandhi in a meeting at her residence on Tuesday.

This was the first meeting held with the party’s top leader after the appointment of Sidhu as Punjab Congress chief.

Sources said that Sonia took note of it and asked Punjab Congress in-charge Harish Rawat, who was also present in the meeting, to look into it.

Despite the truce between Singh and Sidhu, the cricketer-turned-politician has been attacking the government.

Sidhu has questioned the “delay” in taking action by the state government against Akali leader Bikram Singh Majithia and others accused in a drug trafficking case.
