Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee (PPCC) has taken a serious note of former PPCC chief Navjot Singh Sidhu’s Moga rally held on Sunday.

PPCC chief Amrinder Singh Raja Warring said the party high command has been informed about the rally that did not have the permission of the state unit.

The event was significant as Sidhu participated in the rally after he recently met Punjab affairs in-charge Devendra Yadav during the latter’s Punjab visit. Sidhu had claimed that he had already informed Yadav about the pre-scheduled rallies.

The cricketer-turned-politician’s activism has ruffled many a feather in the state leadership just ahead of the 2024 General Election as he is making his presence felt in state politics by organising mass contact programmes.

In party circles, it was being felt that the former PPCC chief wants to be politically rehabilitated. But this could unsettle the current state party leadership in the run-up to the Lok Sabha poll.

Senior party leaders are calling Sidhu’s outreach programme an act of indiscipline.

Under the banner of ‘Jittega Punjab, Jittegi Congress’, Sidhu has held three rallies earlier, including two in Bathinda and one in Hoshiarpur, without consultation with the state leadership.

Today’s Moga rally was organised by former district president of the party Maheshinder Singh, who joined the Congress before the 2017 Assembly poll. But Moga Congress leaders distanced themselves from the event as it was not an event of the state party unit.

Punjab affairs in-charge Devendra Yadav had tried to play down the tussle between Warring and Sidhu but had added that any act of indiscipline would not be tolerated.
