Trouble in Punjab Congress: Amarinder Singh Unhappy

There is a fresh spark in the Congressional Punjab unit. Today the Congress called for a crucial conference of its legislators in Punjab, which quoted “late-night tweets with representation from a considerable number of MLAs.” The gathering might cause problems for Chief Minister Amarinder Singh, targeted by separatist groups who want him removed from power.

Prior to the important meeting, the Chief Minister visits his loyal MLAs in his residence in Mohali. As a result, a CLP meeting has been scheduled on September 18 at 5 PM at the Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee headquarters.

“All Punjab Congress MLAs are warmly invited to join this meeting “Harish Rawat, the Congress’s Punjab in-charge, sent out a tweet late Friday. Mr. Rawat also mentioned Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh, and Punjab Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu in his post.

The Congress has been putting a veneer of unity and collaboration over the disagreements between the two prominent leaders in the state unit. Mr. Rawat stated on September 8 that people in Punjab think party leaders are battling because the “brave” leaders express themselves aggressively.

“Punjab is a courageous people’s land. People there have expressed their strong opinions, and it appears like they will fight. But there isn’t anything like that, and people solve their problems on their own. The Punjab Congress is resolving its problems on their own.

In comparison, the BJP has changed four chief ministers in the last six months. Vijay Rupani, the Gujarat Chief Minister, just resigned a year before the elections. His departure comes after BS Yediyurappa’s resignation in Karnataka in July and a twin blow in Uttarakhand, where Tirath Singh Rawat resigned just four months after succeeding Trivendra Rawat. Next year, voters in Gujarat and Uttarakhand will elect new administrations.
