Navjot Singh Sidhu writes to Sonia Gandhi on 13 issues in Punjab

Punjab Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu has written to party president Sonia Gandhi, seeking a meeting to present a 13-point agenda for the party’s campaign for the Assembly polls due next year. Stating that this is “Punjab’s last chance for resurrection and redemption” Sidhu sought a personal meeting with Sonia Gandhi.

Among the points highlighted by Sidhu in the letter are justice in sacrilege cases, Punjab’s drugs menace, agricultural issues, employment opportunities, sand mining, and welfare of backward classes.

In the letter addressed to Gandhi, Sidhu sought time from her to present to her a Punjab Model, with a 13-point agenda for the Congress Manifesto. The letter dated October 15, was shared by Sidhu on Twitter today.

Sidhu had stepped down as Punjab Congress chief on September 28 and posted his resignation letter on Twitter.

Earlier, this week he met Rahul Gandhi in Delhi. Sidhu’s meeting with Gandhi came a day after he met AICC general secretary (organisation) KC Venugopal and Rawat at the AICC headquarters. Rawat was also present during Sidhu’s meeting with Gandhi, which stretched on for one and a half hours.

Party general secretary in-charge Harish Rawat Friday said that after his meeting with Rahul Gandhi, Sidhu has been “assured” that his concerns will be address and that he will soon resume his duties as the state chief.


Emerging from the meeting, Sidhu told the media: “Whatever concerns I had, I shared those with Rahul ji. All those concerns are sorted out”. He refused to speak anything on his resignation.

During the meeting with Venugopal and Rawat, the Punjab Congress leader raised his concerns over the 18-point agenda taken up by the leadership on which actions are pending. These included action against those involved in the sacrilege issue and the drugs mafia.
