Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh today said workers and leaders of the state party unit should not get confused over two power centres as Punjab Congress chief Navjot Singh Sidhu was running the party, while he was heading the state government and both had different responsibilities.

“I do not know why the media is asking such questions. There should not be any confusion. Both party and the government are two different things. Today, we are in a good position and we need to work to consolidate our position further for the Assembly elections,” the CM told mediapersons in Sunam after inaugurating a memorial of Shaheed Udham Singh.
It is for the first time that the CM attended an event here since the formation of his government in 2017. A function is organised every year to mark the martyrdom day of the freedom fighter. While Cabinet Minister Vijay Inder Singla reached the venue late, Charanjit Singh Channi returned from Sunam city as protesters had blocked the main road. The CM also passed as “not a major issue” the questions about reported unease between him and Sidhu on stage when the latter took charge as the party chief last month.
“By meeting all district MLAs and other leaders of the party, the state chief is doing his duty as he should know all our leaders and meet them,” the CM said.
Meanwhile, AAP senior leaders Bhagwant Mann and Harpal Cheema visited the ancestral home of the martyr at Sunam and paid floral tributes.
