Chandigarh: Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee chief Sunil Jakhar will hold a meeting of party legislators and district unit presidents on Monday (July 19) here, ahead of the likely revamp of the state unit.

In a statement here on Sunday (July 18), Jakhar said in the meeting, all the MLAs and district presidents will pass a resolution stating that whatever decision the party high command takes regarding Punjab, would be acceptable to the entire state unit.

This resolution will then be sent to Congress president Sonia Gandhi.

The Congress leader said it would also be appealed that whatever decision the high command wanted to take regarding Punjab should be taken expeditiously so that the party could resolve the important issues related to the people of the state.

He said the meeting will take place at Punjab Congress Bhawan here at 3 pm on Monday.

Jakhar’s statement comes amid suspense over the much-awaited announcement by the party high command to resolve the festering internal feud in the Punjab Congress.

A power tussle in Punjab Congress is currently ongoing on for over a month where Navjot Singh Sidhu openly rebelled against the state government by criticising the electricity cataclysm in the state. Ahead of the assembly polls next year, Congress leadership has been trying their best to find a solution to the rift.

Sidhu had on Saturday met Jakhar at his residence and called the incumbent PPCC chief an “elder brother and a guiding force”.
