sidhu: Sidhu seeks Sonia’s time to discuss Punjab’s ‘last chance’ | India News


CHANDIGARH: A day after Congress president Sonia Gandhi told party leaders at CWC meeting in Delhi that “there is no need to speak to me through the media”, Punjab Congress chief Navjot Singh Sidhu on Sunday made public a letter written to her with his 13-point agenda for the state. “I express with a lot of pain in my heart that this is Punjab’s last chance for resurrection and redemption,” he wrote in the letter dated October 15, which was shared on his Twitter account on Sunday.
Sidhu said the Punjab government must deliver on the priority areas that he had listed and sought time from Sonia to present a ‘Punjab Model’ which would be part of the Congress manifesto for 2022 assembly polls.
The letter was written after Sidhu held a meeting with Rahul Gandhi and other leaders in Delhi on the ongoing Congress crisis in Punjab. Interestingly, he had told mediapersons after his meetings that “all issues have been resolved”.
Sidhu warned that “mafia-raj ruling the state patronised by the Badals will take the state to the extent of financial emergency, joblessness, corruption and agrarian crisis from where there will be no return”. Requesting Sonia to consider the points highlighted by him, Sidhu urged the party president to direct the state government to act in the best interest of the people of Punjab immediately.
