In the Punjab Congress, the war between Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh and former minister Navjot Singh Sidhu has somehow come to an end. Amarinder Singh’s objections were ignored and Sidhu was appointed as the state Congress president. Subsequent moves, however, show that the issue does not end there.

Amarinder has not yet congratulated Sidhu on taking charge as the state president. Sidhu did not apologize for the public criticism of him. With the Assembly elections in Punjab set to take place next year, all this is gaining importance.

Although from a Congress family, Sidhu started his political journey from the BJP. The BJP , which had planned to contest the 2017 assembly elections , left the party in 2016 after the BJP did not come forward to allot him the Amritsar constituency and the Siromani Akali Dal did not come forward to sever ties with the party.

While it was rumored that he might join the Aam Aadmi Party, he accepted Prashant Kishor’s idea and joined the Congress.

Sidhu, who won the 2017 Amritsar East constituency by-election, was waiting for the post of Deputy Chief Minister. Not available. The tourism and local government departments assigned to him did not support him. Following this, the Chief Minister pursued a course of confrontation with Amarinder. Sidhu made public allegations that Amarinder had not fulfilled his election promises. Following this, Amarinder criticized the government on Twitter.

As the conflict intensified both sides went to Delhi and the CongressThey met the leadership and appealed. Amarinder vehemently opposed Sidhu’s resignation as head of state. However, Sidhu has achieved what he set out to do. Stubborn, he has on several occasions rejected Amarinder’s pleas and conditions. All this has left Amarinder deeply dissatisfied.

Meanwhile, Punjab State Congress chief Harish Rawat was sent from Delhi to appease Amarinder . He pointed out to reporters that Amarinder had already stated that he would accept whatever the Delhi leadership decides. But Amarinder is still struggling. He had pointed out to Harish Rawat that Sidhu had written more than 150 tweets against him.

Sidhu is a strengthening figure for the Congress party.

Sidhu is still adamant that he should apologize. But Sidhu has no sign of that. Although Sidhu is a strengthening figure for the Congress party, his supporters feel that it is unforgivable to publicly criticize and weaken Amarinder’s government. It is not enough that some senior leaders have started urging Amarinder to forgive Sidhu.

Sidhu and Amarinder were Jat Sikhs; Both are from Patiala. In this context, Amarinder continued to insist that giving the post of head of state to Sidhu would make other communities dissatisfied. Sunil Jagger, who has been the leader till now, is a Hindu. Amarinder felt that another Hindu should come in his place. There were even rumors that Manish Tiwari, a Hindu, would get the leadership responsibility. But since Manish was one of the leaders of the ‘G23’, the disgruntled leaders who wrote the letter to the Congress leadership, the party leadership never saw the idea.

At the same time, the Congress has appointed four acting leaders, including Sukhwinder Singh Daini, who is on the list to give prominence to other communities. However, the Congress leadership rejected the names suggested by Amarinder for the post of acting president . In fact, all his attempts to unravel Sidhu’s strategic web have been thwarted by the party leadership.

Amarinder had strongly recorded his argument against giving leadership to Sidhu.

Before Sidhu met Sonia Gandhi in Delhi on Friday (July 16), Sonia received a letter from Amarinder. In it, Amarinder had strongly recorded his argument against giving leadership to Sidhu. He also warned of a split in the party. Beyond that, the assignment of this responsibility to Sidhu is of great importance.

Amarinder, Sonia Gandhi’s well – respected senior leader, Rahul Gandhi, is not Priyanka Gandhi’s favorite. Amarinder’s personal influence played a key role in the Congress’ victory in the 2017 Punjab Assembly elections . As his influence to date is substantial, Congress will need his support in the next election. The current situation in Punjab politics is that Sidhu and he must work together for that.

However, the Congress leadership is said to be reluctant to field Amarinder, who is approaching the age of 80, as the next Chief Minister . The Congress plans to field a young, charismatic leader, Sidhu, as its chief ministerial candidate. The main criticism of Amarinder is that he did not keep his promises made during the 2017 elections.

With Sidhu fielding as the chief ministerial candidate, the Congress hopes to create the impression among the voters that the promises will definitely be fulfilled if the Congress comes to power again . The struggle of the peasants against the agricultural laws of the United States has maintained a favorable environment for the Congress in Punjab. In such an environment it is likely to be a toxic test.

Opposition parties are trying to take advantage of the situation. The state BJP has criticized that “now the comedy circus will take place within the Congress” . The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), which has been criticized for neglecting the welfare of the people in the ongoing chair battle in Congress, has vowed that the people will teach the Congress a lesson in the 2022 elections.

The political storm that has crossed the border in the Punjab Congress is expected to cause a stir in the Rajasthan Congress as well. Sachin Pilot Camp, which tried to jump to the BJP and later changed its mind, is now expected to adopt the Sidhu style. Political observers have criticized the Congress leadership for taking too long to reach a final decision on the Sidhu-Amarinder clash , saying it shows its stumbling block and that the issue would not have ended this far if it had been taken earlier . The main question before the Congress is whether the Punjab riots as a whole will be effective or weak !
