Even as Navjot Singh Sidhu handed over a letter demanding action on 18 point agenda, the chief minister told him that all the key issues of concern raised by them were already in advanced stages of resolution by his government.

The new PPCC leadership team led by Navjot Sidhu had called on the Chief Minister and submitted a letter listing out some issues as needing urgent settlement. PPCC working presidents Kuljit Singh Nagra, Sangat Singh Gilzian, Sukhwinder Singh Danny and Pawan Goel had accompanied Sidhu to their first meeting with the Chief Minister since taking over the state Congress reins.

Noting that his government had already implemented most of the promises made to the people in the 2016-17 party election manifesto, the Chief Minister told the party’s state leadership that the other pending issues were also being resolved.

His government was committed to the implementation of all the poll promises, Captain Amarinder later said, describing the meeting as cordial.

Stressing the need to work closely together in the interest of the party, the Chief Minister told the Punjab Congress president and working presidents that “your win is my win and our win is the party’s win, and we need to work together in the interest of the state and its people”.

Captain Amarinder said the party leaders and workers need to take the pro-people decisions and actions of the government to the ground so that the people of Punjab could be made aware of all the excellent work done in the past 4+ years of the Congress government in the state.

The Chief Minister offered to meet the PPCC leaders on regular basis to ensure better coordination between the government and the party.
