NEW DELHI/CHANDIGARH: Punjab Congress president Navjot Sidhu’s continued attacks on the state government over the sacrilege issue and the ensuing chaos in the state party unit “may result in a decision” in the state soon, even as early as Tuesday, sources said.
AICC state incharge Harish Chaudhury held a meeting with CM Charanjit Channi and Sidhu on Monday, after the latter’s yet another offensive against the state government. Chaudhury also had a meeting with AICC general secretary KC Venugopal.
There was also a meeting of a senior party office bearer with Congress president Sonia Gandhi, it is learnt. “There should be a movement on the issue tomorrow. It may be settled for good,“ a senior leader said.
Sidhu also served an ultimatum to the Punjab government while reiterating his demand for the removal of state DGP IPS Sahota and advocate general APS Deol. “Either you choose the two compromised officers or the PPCC chief,” he said.
Sidhu also questioned why the state government had not filed the chargesheet in the Kotkapura firing case.
