A number of Congress leaders and workers of Sahnewal left for Chandigarh today to attend the installation ceremony of Navjot Singh Sidhu as Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee (PPCC) president.

Sahnewal Municipal Council chief Captain Sukhjit Singh Hara, along with councillors Pal Singh Grewal, Happy Mundian, Ramesh Kumar, Shamsher Singh, Gulzar Singh, Jagdish Singh, Market Committee Chairman Daljit Atwal and Zila Parishad members Jaspal Singh Bhaini, Gurdev Singh Lapran, Ravneet Jandiali and sarpanches and panches of a number of surrounding villages geared up to participate in the ceremony.

The leaders and workers said they wished to show solidarity with Sidhu, from whom they had high hopes. “Sidhu as PPCC president shall work wonders and lead the party to victory in the 2022 elections. Working in collaboration with Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh and other party leaders, Sidhu is expected to resolve all misunderstandings and internal disputes which existed earlier and begin anew for the overall betterment of the party,” Hara said.

Meanwhile, Amargarh legislators Surjit Singh Dhiman, Payal MLA Lakhvir Singh Lakha, Raikot halqa in charge Kaamil Amar Singh and Gill legislator Kuldeep Singh Vaid led party workers during the installation celebration.
