Reports suggest that Sunil Jakhar, Pratap Singh Bajwa, Raj Kumar Verka, Inderjit are among the front runners who may replace Capt Amarinder Singh provided he steps down from the CM post. The MLAs of Sidhu’s camp may put forward the name of former Punjab Congress chief Sunil Jakhar as their choice for the chief minister of Punjab.

The reason for putting forward the name of Sunil Jakhar could be to establish the combination of a Hindu Sikh chief minister and Jat Sikh president of the Punjab Congress.

Surprisingly, this bold leadership decision to resolve Punjab Congress imbroglio has not only enthralled congress workers but has sent shudders down the spines of Akalis,” Mr Jakhar tweeted.
