AICC PANEL SUBMITS PUNJAB REPORT, RAHUL MEETS STATE LEADERS

After the submission of report by three-member panel of the Congress on Punjab to resolve factionalism in its state unit, party president Sonia Gandhi is likely to take the decision on the matter of Punjab government and on the structural and organisational changes in the state by early July. AICC general secretary in-charge of the state, Harish Rawat, has mentioned that the AICC panel had already submitted its Punjab report to the Congress chief. According to sources, the panel had also urged Chief Minister Amarinder Singh for time-bound implementation of 18 major poll promises of the Congress, including action on Bargari sacrilege, drug issues, sand mining and transport mafia. However, the central leadership has ruled out a change in leadership, given that elections are only months away. The committee has emphasised the need for unity, which seems difficult at this stage given Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu’s public posturing against CM Singh. Meanwhile, Rahul Gandhi met state unit chief Sunil Jakhar, finance minister Manpreet Badal and Punjab MPs Manish Tewari and Partap Bajwa and sought their assessment of Congress prospects and the steps needed to be taken to ensure a victory in 2022.
