‘He Won’t Meet Navjot Sidhu Without Apology’ Says Amarinder Singh’s Team

The reports that Navjot Sidhu had sought time to meet CM Amarinder Singh following his elevation as leader of the Congress’ Punjab unit has been dismissed by a tweet from the Chief Minister’s media strategist on Tuesday.

The tweet from the CM’s media strategist has made it clear that the two leader’s feud is far from over. Punjab’s CM will not be meeting Navjot Singh Sidhu till he receives an apology for his social media attacks.

The tweet from the CM’s media strategist said that Mr. Sidhu hadn’t sought time to meet the Chief Minister following his elevation as leader of the Congress’ Punjab unit, and said a meeting will not happen till Mr. Sidhu apologises for “personal derogatory social media attacks”.

“Reports of @sherryontop seeking time to meet @capt_amarinder are totally false. No time has been sought whatsoever. No change in stance… CM won’t meet #NavjotSinghSidhu till he publicly apologises for his personally derogatory social media attacks against him.” Raveen Thukral wrote.

The Congress party’s high command will be disappointed with the tweet, as the party must have hoped that weeks of infighting and threats to a re-election bid were settled on Monday after Mr. Sidhu’s promotion and the appointment of Working Presidents according to Mr. Singh’s specifications.

The warning signs regarding the CM’s media tweet were there all along though, most notable of which has been the absence of an apology from Mr. Sidhu for the ‘social media attacks’.

The key conditions laid down by the Chief Minister had also been ignored. These conditions included vetting of new Working Presidents for Punjab Congress. Four presidents were announced in line with Mr. Singh’s demand to keep the focus on Hindus and Dalits. However, none were signed-off by him, despite that being another key condition.
