Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh and his former Cabinet colleague Navjot Singh Sidhu held an hour-long meeting over lunch at the former’s farmhouse in Siswan here today.

Sports Minister Rana Gurmit Singh Sodhi was also reportedly present at the meeting, following which Sidhu left for Amritsar.

AICC general secretary and Punjab affairs in-charge Harish Rawat, who had been trying for a rapprochement between the two, called it a positive development. “My job is done. The big brother (Capt) and the younger brother can now strategise a way forward in the interest of Punjab,” said Rawat. “It was a warm and cordial luncheon meeting that saw the Chief Minister and Navjot Singh Sidhu discuss a host of important political matters of Punjab and national interest,” the CM’s media adviser tweeted.

The meeting could soon see the re-induction of Sidhu into the state Cabinet. There could also be a reshuffle of departments. — TNS
