With farmers angry with the BJP over the new contentious farm laws, there was a presumption that the next assembly election in Punjab would be a cake walk for the Congress. But the running feud between Chief Minister Amarinder Singh and Navjot Singh Sidhu, who resigned from the Ministry and kept aloof, is causing fireworks to fly. The fight is in full swing, with Sidhu taking a public stand against the CM in the sacrilege case and accusing him of shielding the Badal family. The CM hit back daring Sidhu to contest against him in Patiala if he wanted to lose his deposit. Sidhu is known for his closeness with the Gandhi family but his open revolt against the Punjab Chief Minister has complicated the situation and compelling the high command to keep its distance from him. If the high command fails to bring about a truce, the Congress is in for trouble in Punjab which is going to the polls in 2022.
