sidhu: I will meet with Bhagwant Mann tomorrow to discuss economy of Punjab says Navjot Singh Sidhu | India News

NEW DELHI: In an interesting development, Navjot Singh Sidhu, senior chairman of the Punjab Congress, said on Sunday he would meet Prime Minister Bhagwant Mann to discuss the state’s economic revitalization.
Sidhu said that Punjab’s resurrection is only possible with a sincere collective effort.
Interestingly, Sidhu’s announcement of a meeting comes at a time when Congress was considering disciplinary action against him. Sidhu was the head of the Punjab Congress unit thrashed by the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) with Bhagwant Mann as the face at the hustings.
“Will meet CM @BhagwantMann tomorrow at 17:15 in Chandigarh to discuss matters related to reviving the economy of Punjab. . . Punjab’s resurrection is only possible with an honest collective effort,” Sidhu said in a tweet.
Sidhu’s actions will be closely monitored as recent developments indicate he may not be on the best of terms with the leadership of Congress.

Earlier, AICC Punjab Affairs Officer Harish Chaudhary requested disciplinary action against Sidhu.
The former head of the state congress posted a cryptic tweet on Wednesday saying he “gave the right to respond in a timely manner.” Although he didn’t give his tweet context, it was reportedly taken as a response to Chaudhary’s letter to party leader Sonia Gandhi calling for action against Sidhu for trying to “portray himself above the party”.
“I often hear silent conversations against me. I gave the right to reply in time,” Sidhu said in a Hindi tweet.
In the April 23 letter, Chaudhary had also conveyed a detailed memo from Amrinder Singh Raja Warring, the Punjab Congress leader, on Sidhu’s “current activities.”

Chaudhary had noted in the letter that Sidhu was adamantly critical of the previous Congressional administration, although he had asked not to do so. Chaudhary had also mentioned that Sidhu had come to the state party’s headquarters during the ceremony of appointing Warring as Punjab Congress chief, but had not shared the stage with other leaders.
According to Chaudhary, it was “inexcusable”. In his note, Warring reportedly highlighted Sidhu’s “parallel activities” and his recent meetings with designated leaders, including former MLAs Surjit Singh Dhiman and Kewal Dhillon.
