Chandigarh, July 21

Newly appointed PCC Chief Navjot Singh Sidhu is expected to formally take over reins of the state unit at a function to be held here on Friday.  

Party sources said that senior leaders are expected to attend the event though a formal list is being drawn out. With differences between him and Capt Amarinder Singh continuing to persist, it remains to be seen whether the Chief Minister attends the event. Media advisor to the Chief Minister had yesterday reiterated that Capt Amarinder would not meet Sidhu till he apologises for his `derogatory’ remarks.

Sources said that the party high command was trying for a patch up between the two so that the campaign for the 2022 assembly elections would not be impacted.
