“The report of the three-member committee will provide the basis for necessary decisions by the party high command. The end objective of one of the most extensive, democratic and candid conversations amongst party men is to revitalise the party and the state government through maximum accommodation of  leaders and workers towards an inclusive functioning of the party and the government,” said Kumar.

He said the details of accommodation would be worked out by the high command in consultation with the Chief Minister.

“I believe that at this moment there is no better alternative to Captain Amarinder Singh as Chief Minister. Now is the time to concentrate on the containment of Covid-19 and delivery of relief to people at their doorsteps. We cannot afford to be distracted from this paramount mission.

Irritants in the government functioning can always be discussed and removed,” he said.

Kumar said party leaders must wait for the Central leadership to devise suitable structures for adjustments and accommodation so that there is mo festering sense of justice.

“We need a united party and satisfied party men to go into battle early next year,” he noted.
