Bathinda, February 12

The infighting in the Punjab Congress is intensifying with each passing day. Now, Congress leaders, including six former MLAs and two constituency in-charges of the Congress from the ex-PPCC president Navjot Sidhu group, have pointed finger at the present leadership of the state by calling the workers’ convention held at Samrala a flop show.

In a letter to All-India Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge, Sonia Gandhi, Priyanka Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi, Sidhu supporters Mahesh Inder Singh, Surjit Singh Dhiman, Nirmal Singh Chhatrana, Najar Singh Manshaiah, Jagdev Singh Kamalu and Pirmal Singh Bhadour (all former MLAs), Congress leader Vishwanath Bunty, in-charge of Guruharsahai constituency Vijay Kalra and in-charge of Bathinda rural constituency Harvinder Singh Laddi said that with the Lok Sabha elections around the corner, it was worrisome that the leadership of the Punjab Pradesh Congress was able to gather less than 10,000 people at the workers’ convention. They said that when the party’s national president Mallikarjun Kharge was speaking, only about 200 people were present in the pandal, an insult to the All-India Congress president.

Congress leaders said that at the Samrala rally, the All -India Congress president was supposed to instil enthusiasm among the Congress workers, but this rally has earned a bad name for the party. They said that some leaders of Punjab Congress were misleading the high command, but the ‘failed’ workers’ convention had exposed the ‘false propaganda’ against Sidhu.
