More heads could roll in the Punjab Congress over indiscipline in the coming days.

A day after the Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee (PPCC) suspended party leader from Moga Maheshinder Singh and his son for not informing the local leadership about the January 21 Moga rally, more heads are expected to roll in the coming days.

Former PPCC chief on X

Neither did I fall, nor did any tower of my hopes fall, but everyone, trying to make me fall, fell again and again!!!. Navjot Sidhu, Ex-PPCC Chief

It is learnt that for the last few days, PPCC chief Amrinder Singh Raja Warring, leader of the Opposition Partap Singh Bajwa, senior leader and Rajasthan affairs in-charge Sukhjinder Randhawa and former CM Charanjit Singh Channi have been pressing the high command to rein in former PPCC chief Navjot Singh Sidhu.

“The suspension of Maheshinder Singh is a signal to those indulging in indiscipline within the party. Pressure is building within the party to end the feud, especially when the General Election is round the corner. Everything will be clear over the next few days,” said a senior PPCC member.

Sources said before proceeding against any senior leader, the PPCC chief and the Leader of the Opposition will be called to Delhi to discuss the issue of indiscipline in the state unit. Party leaders said Maheshinder Singh’s suspension was a subtle message to Sidhu to fall in party line.

Without directly commenting on the suspension, former PPCC chief, in a tweet on X, said, “Neither did I fall, nor did any tower of my hopes fall, but everyone, trying to make me fall, fell again and again!!!”. Earlier this month, a war of words had erupted between Sidhu and Warring when Punjab affairs in-charge Devendra Yadav was in the state to hold meeting with party workers.

Warring had stated that the party’s programmes should be held in consultation with the state unit. Without naming anyone, Warring said those who became a “spoilsport” would have to face the consequences.

“The party’s programme should be held according to the state unit president’s wishes. But Warring has a big heart. I have no insecurity from anyone. Some people have a good height, but a small heart and they feel threatened,” he stated.

Yadav is reaching Punjab tomorrow to hold the second round of parliamentary-level meetings.
