“Reports of Navjot Singh Sidhu seeking time to meet Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh are totally false. No time has been sought. No change in the stance. The Chief Minister will not meet Sidhu till he publicly apologises for his personally derogatory social media attacks against him,” said Singh’s media advisor in a tweet yesterday.

Previously, senior Punjab Cabinet Minister Brahm Mohindra had welcomed the idea of appointing Navjot Singh Sidhu as the Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee (PPCC) president, however, ruled out any personal meeting with him till he resolves his issues with the Chief Minister of Punjab.

In an official release, Brahm Mohindra said that this decision to appoint Sidhu was been taken by the high command and is welcomed.

“However, I will not meet him (Sidhu) till he meets the Chief Minister and resolves his issues with him”, said Mohindra, adding that Captain Amarinder Singh is the leader of the Congress legislative party and he (Mohindra) is duty-bound to follow him.

Other than being the CLP leader, the Punjab Chief Minister also spearheads the cabinet of which he is a part, said the minister, making it clear that unless Navjot Singh Sidhu resolves all his issues with Captain Amarinder, there is no chance of him (Mohindra) meeting him personally.

“We have a collective responsibility and hence I would refrain from meeting the newly appointed president till issues between him and CM are resolved”, said Mohindra.
