New Delhi: Senior Congress MLAs hint that resolution of the ongoing crisis in Punjab Congress is likely in the next couple of days.

“Captain Amarinder Singh will go to Delhi in the coming days. He will meet with the high command. Whatever high command orders, it will be accepted by all,” MLA Raj Kumar Verka said after the meeting.

Another senior party leader, Congress general secretary in-charge of Punjab affairs Harish Rawat added that the latest meeting of disgruntled Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu with Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi is a good sign and will help resolve the infight very soon.

“Navjot Singh Sidhu’s meeting with Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi is a good sign, and this will help resolve the issue. I think there could be a resolution soon”, Harish Rawat told reporters in Delhi.

Navjot Singh Sidhu’s meeting with Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi is a good sign, and this will help resolve the issue. I think there could be a resolution soon, Harish Rawat, Congress general secretary in-charge of Punjab affairs said.

Earlier on Thursday, Amarinder Singh met senior party leaders from urban areas of the state at his residence in Chandigarh. Senior leaders like former state president Lal Singh, Cabinet Minister Brahm Mohinder, MLA Ashwani Sekri as well as general secretary in-charge Harish Rawat were present there.

The development comes a day after Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu met with party leader Rahul Gandhi in the national capital.

Before meeting Rahul Gandhi, Sidhu met party general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra at her residence.

Sidhu and Amarinder have been at loggerheads months ahead of the Punjab Assembly polls and the rift in the state unit has intensified in the past few weeks.

While Sidhu met Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, the party’s top leadership did not meet Punjab Chief Minister who was in Delhi recently for three days.

Punjab Assembly polls, scheduled for next year, are being considered crucial for Congress as it is one of the few states where the party is still in power.

In 2017 Assembly polls, Congress won an absolute majority in the state by winning 77 seats and ousted the SAD-BJP government after 10 years.
