Navjot Singh Sidhu takes back resignation as Punjab Congress president | Chandigarh News


CHANDIGARH: Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu on Friday said that he has taken his resignation back as party’s Punjab unit president.
Addressing a press conference in Chandigarh, he said, “I have taken back my resignation. The day new advocate general is appointed and new panel comes on the director general of police, I will resume charge of my office”.

Sidhu also justified his objections to appointment of the advocate general and the director general of police by the Charanjit Singh Channi government.
Earlier, amid some reports that APS Deol offered to resign as the Punjab advocate general, a source close to him refuted the same, saying there is no such development.
On September 27, the Punjab government had notified the appointment of Deol as the state’s advocate general.
The development comes days after the Punjab chief minister and Sidhu, who have not been on the same page over certain appointments, Tuesday said they will work with each other and fight the upcoming polls together, according to party MLAs.
They met during a meeting of party MLAs and other senior leaders on Tuesday evening to discuss strategy for the elections.
The meeting was held on a day former Punjab chief minister Amarinder Singh resigned from the Congress and announced the name of his own political party.
Senior Congress leader and Punjab affairs in-charge Harish Chaudhary was also present in the meeting where the party sought to show that there were no differences between Channi and Sidhu and the party will fight the polls unitedly.
Sidhu and Channi had not been on the same page over certain appointments which led to unease between them.
“All is well,” Sidhu told reporters after the meeting.
A party MLA said Sidhu and Channi told the meeting they will work with each other and fight the upcoming elections together.
